Thanks for writing to Aspose.Tasks support team.
Following features are supported while reading MS Project 2013 MPP file in this release:
I tested the “Normal.mpp” file created from MS Project 2013 using following code and found that it was read successfully and no exception was raised. I used latest version Aspose.Tasks for .NET 5.1.0
for all the testings below:
//create a project reader instance
ProjectReader projectReader1 = new ProjectReader();
//call read method of project reader object to get project object
Project existingProject1 = projectReader1.Read(@“D:\Normal.mpp”);
You saved this “Normal.mpp” file as MS Project 2007 file and attached with this post as “SavedAs2007.mpp”. This file is opened in MS Project 2010 and found that it was different from the original “Normal.mpp” file as shown in the attached snap shot “Difference.png”. It shows “3” as task name instead of “Software Development”. Please confirm if it is some edited file or same file as saved from MSP 2013.
This “SavedAs2007.mpp” is opened using Aspose.Tasks and an exception is raised as “Project reading exception”.
“Normal.mpp” file is opened in MS Project 2010 and saved as “MS Project 2007”. This newly created file is opened successfully using Aspose.Tasks.
Please give a try to the above mentioned code and let us know your findings for “Normal.mpp”.
Similarly, please verify the appropriate MSP 2007 version file and give a try with the above mentioned code.
