Information about the .wsp (wsp) file type

This is one of seven possibilities that we have on file for the .wsp file extension, follow this link to view all seven possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .wsp (wsp) file type.

.wsp
Windows SharePoint Services solution file.

A .wsp file is a deployable, reusable package that contains a set of features, site definitions and assemblies for a SharePoint site.

The .wsp file format is the same as that of a .cab file. It is therefore a deployable file that can contain other files, such as site definitions and assemblies. To view the content of a .wsp file it may be more convenient to rename it as .cab.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .wsp files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .wsp. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
