Hi,

@GEFE,

I have observed the issue information shared by you and request you to please first try using latest Aspose.Tasks for .NET 19.4 on your end. In case there is still an issue then please share the working sample code reproducing the issue on your end.


#3

I’ve updated to 19.4. sadly the output is still the same.

The code is just reading the file and printing the name and dates:

private static void PrintAspose()
{
var license = new License();
// From Embedded Resource
license.SetLicense(“Aspose.Tasks.lic”);
var project = new Project(_path);
PrintA(project.RootTask, “”);
}

private static void PrintA(Task task, string indent)
{
Console.WriteLine($"{indent}Task: {task.Get(Tsk.WBS)} {task.Get(Tsk.Name)} - Start: {task.Get(Tsk.Start)}, Finish: {task.Get(Tsk.Finish)}");
indent = $"{indent} ";
for (var index = 0; index < task.Children.Count; index++)
{
var child = task.Children.ToList()[index];
PrintA(child, indent);
}
}

Thanks for your help

@GEFE,

I regret to share that the issue specified is not yet resolved yet. Actually, in Aspose.Tasks forum the issues are selected for investigation on first come first serve basis. Also the first priority for scheduling and resolution is given to paid Enterprise and priority support customers. Then Aspose.Tasks normal or free support customers issues are scheduled and resolved on first come and first come serve basis. I will share the further information with you as soon as the issue will be resolved. I request for your patience.
