INSTALLSTATE files are temporary files that are created by programs to temporarily store information, for example, allocating extra memory for their tasks, as a swap service for data jobs larger than the address space of the architecture, or as a primitive form of communication between processes.
Temporary file extensions are used by operating systems or software applications to store temporary data to be erased later, however, sometimes due to various circumstances, such as electrical failures at the time of writing the file or due to a program error, they are not erased and they are useless taking up space.
This type of file falls into the category of Developer Files and is in XML format.
INSTALLSTATE files can also contain version information, as well as any custom information entered during the process of any software installation that uses installutil.exe.
For example, you can specify in the installation dialog box a server address of any database and the credentials to be used with your software and the address can be stored in an INSTALLSTATE file, so they can be retrieved during uninstallation.
They are still temporary files, in this case, however the saved data may be useful when uninstalling the software.
