Developer: ChessBase
File type: Fritz Update File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .iup. Files with the file extension .iup can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .iup files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .iup file?

IUP files are the software update files used by the Fritz application developed by ChessBase. These data files contain important data used for the upgrading of software from one version to another. When there is an available new software update, they are usually downloaded automatically. IUP files contribute a lot to making an application more updated and upgraded in terms of functions. When there are instances that the Fritz software is not automatically updated, manually updating the software can be applied by users. They can do this by downloading the IUP file. After that, they need to place the file within the Fritz installation directory and finally run the IUPgrade.exe program. This is usually included with the software installation. ChessBase Fritz runs on a Windows operating system and it is known as an online chess playing program that offers everything that chess players would want in a chess game. Users can also choose beginner, club player or professional before playing the game using the software.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .iup files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .iup. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
