What is an .QRC file?

.QRC is Qt Resource Collection File

XML file used by programs created with Qt, a cross-platform application development toolkit; contains a list of application resources, such as image files; included as part of the application bundle when the Qt application is built.

Qt applications use QRC files to locate resources in the application bundle during execution. The paths of files referenced in a QRC file are relative to the directory in which the QRC file is located.

NOTE: Qt SDK was previously developed by Nokia before Digia acquired the software.
