What is an .MIO file?

.MIO file extension is created by Mioplanet Technologies. .MIO has been classified as Executable Files. The format of .MIO file is Binary.

.MIO is MioEngine Application File

Application file built by MioFactory, software package used to develop applications for the free MioEngine platform; stores all application files in a single archive that can run independently in MioEngine; commonly used to build widgets, screen savers, and other Windows applications.

MIO files contain executable code and application resources such as images, video, audio, and other data files. They also contain an XML configuration file, which allows users to update settings without rebuilding the application.

When MioFactory builds a MIO file, it creates a file named identity.kexe that contains the program code for the application. This file is written in MioScript, a scripting language that is interpreted by MioEngine.

NOTE: In order to run MIO files, you must rename mioEngine.exe (the MioEngine platform executable) to the same filename prefix as the target MIO file. For example, "myWidget.mio" can be run when "mioEngine.exe" is renamed to "myWidget.exe".
