Downloaded project

I downloaded a group of files of a project (zip) with the following extension:
and also .jpg image files, but I have no idea which software I use to open this files.
Can anyone help me? I would like to know the specific software to open these files.

RE: Downloaded project

Probably the same software that was used to create them.

RE: Downloaded project

Well a quick google search leads me to believe whatever they tried sending didn't export correctly.

The pvm and pvs file extensions are from them running Parallels for Mac (allowing a mac user to run windows).

The other file extensions (specifically .ol and .pvt extensions together) may be from a PTC program like Creo (and a quick tip, people here aren't too fond of googling stuff for you).

So based on 2 minutes of googling, I bet this person tried to export a PTC Creo file to you when running it on a mac using parallels.

RE: Downloaded project

I would contact whomever uploaded the files.
