Opening password protected MPP error


We are getting an OverflowException when opening a password protected MPP with the password. The error message is “Array dimensions exceeded supported range.”.

The condensed code is as follows:

var stream = new FileStream(item.FilePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
var password = @“password”
var loadOptions = new LoadOptions {Password = password};
var project = new Project(stream, loadOptions);

I have also attached a sample file.

I look forward to hearing from you.
