    Hi,

    Somebody sent me a Ms Project file.
    When I try to open it with OpenProj, an alert box says : "fails to read the file".
    Launched in a bash session, I've got this trace :

    31 juil. 2012 17:36:33 com.projity.contrib.util.Log info
    INFO: doing file import
    net.sf.mpxj.MPXJException: Invalid file format: MSProject.MPP14

    at com.projity.job.Job.run(Unknown Source)
    at com.projity.job.Job.run(Unknown Source)

    Any idea why I can't open this file ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Hi Steph,  your problem is OpenProj has not been updated in 4 years and there are issues with compatibility with Microsoft Project. A new release is called ProjectLibre and will be out this month.  We will be updating the compatibility with Microsoft Project.  The ProjectLibre project will also be on Sourceforge.
