An AIU file is a configuration file used by Advanced Installer. It contains plain text information, such as the program name, version number, file size, file path, and location of the update file.

AIU files are used to check if a client has the latest version of a software program installed. If a user does not have the latest version of the software, the AIU file provides the location of the downloadable update.

AIU files are often hosted on websites and can be accessed by a web browser. The standard filename is updates.ini, which is located at the end of the URL.
