Start and Finish Date Year reading as 2000

I have used Aspose.Tasks trail version to read mpp file. I’m able to read all the mpp fields correctly using aspose.tasks but all date fields (e.g. start and finish date) showing year as 2000.

I need confirmable before buying the product that license version will give an actual date which is written in mpp file. Kindly confirm.


It is requested to kindly share sample MPP file so that we could test it in detail.

Please find attached the MPP file in ZIP format on behalf of Mukesh Arora.
FYI, Mukesh is my colleague and hence, please consider the MPP file attached in Zip format and provide your confirmation on whether licensed version of Aspose.Tasks product would read the dates (like Start and Finish) in MPP file as is.Sample Project Plan.zip (560.2 KB)
