Opening project with subprojects with special characters causes issues

I’m getting a TasksReadingException when trying to call new public Project(Stream stream) on the attached project.

This project caused issues with another import of ours because it has special characters in some of the subproject file paths, so that might be the cause here as well.

Thank you for contacting Aspose support team.

I have observed the issue however need further assistance before logging it into our bug tracking system. Could you please identify the sub-project name in this sample MPP file having special characters which is causing this issue? Also please confirm that if you remove those special characters from the sample MPP project, does it removes the exception or not. If yes please send us that modified project also for our analysis.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you in this regard.

All the subprojects in the screen shot I sent (that start with <>) give the issue. And yes, when I delete those paths the project opens fine. Modified version attached.
