Opening password-protected project files


Does the Tasks API allow for opening password-protected project files? I do not see any mention of it in the API documentation, and as expected, opening of such a MPP/2003 file fails.

Hi Ijaz,

Is this issue (TASKS-27053) is fixed or inform me the estimated time to fix this issue. I am using Aspose.Tasks.dll for .net version to read the project file. I need to add support for password protected project files in my application.



Hi Dhivya,

This issue is not fixed yet and it is not in our nearest plan however we will update you once our developers have a concrete plan about this feature. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

It has been over 8 months since this thread was updated. Can you please confirm when we might be seeing support for password protected documents?

Hi Glyn,

This issue was delayed because our developers were working on MPP write feature. I have asked the developers to analyze this issue and share the ETA. We will share the ETA once our developers analyze this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Hi Glyn,

Completing 'MPP write support' feature is the top priority at the moment due to which 'support for password protected documents' feature has been shifted to Q4' 2012. Please let us know if you need this feature urgently. We can make changes in the plan for show-stopper features.

Best Regards,

Well, of course I’d like the fix as soon as possible! However there is a workaround in place so Q4 will be ok. please don’t let it slip beyond that though.

Hi Glyn,

Thanks a lot for your cooperation. This issue has been added to our Q4 plans and will be fixed accordingly.
