Can I use a universal file viewer?

A universal file viewer is the way to go when you have PRO files that can’t be opened by any other program. Install a universal file viewer like File Magic (Download) and see if it will open your PRO file. Remember that if your file is not compatible, the universal file viewer will only open it in binary format.
