Is there a way to open a *.lyr file in QGIS without using ArcGIS for Desktop?

I have no access to ArcGIS, so the solution explained in Adding Layerfiles (.lyr) to QGIS? is not an option.

I have a *.lyr file with a lot of information and it is not possible to reproduce it all by myself.

  • There is a suggested solution there that does not require ArcGIS - Arc2SLD. The link was broken, but I have updated it. Also note gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3755 which offers other non-free solutions. Links there might be broken, haven't checked.
