.MPP file extension is the one generated by Microsoft Project software solution of all versions.
The point of this article is to explain the ways you can open such file on your computer, mobile phone or tablet.
Options to open .mpp file
One can open a MS Project .mpp file can in the following ways:
- Open with the program of its creation i.e. Microsoft Project.
- Open the file with alternative reader for mpp file extensions.
The first is the “default way.”
You need to have installed Microsoft Project on your machine and open the .mpp file.
But most likely you’re looking for corporate solution, which means having as number of MS Project licenses as you want to distribute the mpp file to your teammates. Let me explain.
The second way is mostly used by companies and organizations in order to cut cost on MS project licenses, and they look for alternative or cost-effective solutions.
I’ve tested a viewer or reader of Microsoft Project files at www.seavusprojectviewer.com.
More precisely, the Mac version since I’m running the 27th inch beauty.
There are also installations for:
- Windows Phone
- Windows RT
- Online mpp application
It seems like this project viewer is mobile and flexible, and ideal as corporate solution to cut costs on Microsoft Project installations, but also for individuals who can take advantage of the free trial.
The online app is also beneficial because Microsoft’s online solution cost $55, but with SPV you can open mpp files in your browser for free.
Those are the ways know to my to open mpp file.
