    Why can't other users of OpenProject open the files I create?

    Same issue here. Other users cannot open .pod file, yet no error or warning, just nothing loads.

    I have the same problem.  Did you find a way to fix it?  I have fully reloaded V1.4 of Open Proj and still cannot open files from my coworker…

    If you are using the latest Java update 7.0.30 this may cause the problem. The new Java registers as Oracle and triggers this problem.
    Delete Java 7 and install Java 6. That should solve the problem.

    Having Java 6 installed, modify the OpenProj1.4.0.ini file:

    Maximum Version=1.6
    JVM Type=favor_client
    Minimum Version=1.5

    Using Java 6 solved my problem and opened the .pod file

     
  • and what if I can't switch back to Java 6 for the sake that I use other apps which are demanding Java 7??

    @mohamnag : You can have 2 (or more) JREs installed - for each application You run You can then define which JRE to use.

    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

    Same problem, with Windows 7 + Java 7, after creating and closing a file can't not open it.

    Solution: Remove OpenProj and Install the new ProjectLibre.
