Opening PC stored mpp files on Project 1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased Project1 but I can't open view the mpp files already stored on my PC. I first uploaded to onedrive then clicked on the options then open then "Project"and nothing happens. Is this not possible? Should I get a refund?

    When you say you "purchased Project 1", do you mean you purchased a Project Plan 1 license?  If so, you purchased a license for the new Project for the Web application, which is a very low end project management tool aimed at occasional project managers who manage small, simple projects.  Project for the Web CANNOT open MPP files created in the Microsoft Project desktop application.  It sounds like you need the Microsoft Project desktop tool, which you can access if you purchase the Project Plan 3 license.  Hope this helps.
