Unable to open MPP files

  • shabbaranks

    Have tried to open MS Project 2010 files and I get the error "failed to read file". The files opens fine within Project 2010 and I have converted the file to Project 2007 just incase that made a difference which it didnt. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks :)

    I have the same problem. Is there anyone who can help on this?

  • I am experiencing the same problem. Does it really support this function??????

    In my experimentation with OpenProj 1.4, it appears to only support the XML-based files generated by MS Project, .mpx

    We have tried to implement OpenProj as an alternative to MS Project for Mac users at my last two companies, and this file format issue has been the deal-breaker. Though .mpp is listed as an option, I know it doesn't work with .mpp generated by MS Project 2010.

    Have the same problem. the 2010 mpp opens fine in some trial versions of MS Project viewers.
    I had high hopes for openproj but this is a deal breaker.

    Yeah,  the first major update to OpenProj since we got acquired by Serena is coming out tomorrow.  ProjectLibre was a major rewrite and includes compatibility with MIcrosoft Project 2010, bug fixes, printing of reports, a ribbon UI and more.  You can download ProjectLibre also on Sourceforge. We also launched a community site at http://www.projectlibre.org   There are images and other information on the community site.  It would be good to get your feedback on ProjectLibre
