Opening MPP files

Did your computer fail to open a MPP file? We explain what MPP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your MPP files.

What is a MPP file?

Files with the MPP file extension are files that have been created with the Microsoft Project software application. Microsoft Project was the third application ever released by Microsoft and was first introduced in 1984.

The Microsoft Project application is used for the tracking, organization and progress of projects for both business and personal use. It allows users to control schedules, workload, finances and other project elements. It also allows team members to collaborate on projects and stay up-to-date regarding the status of a project in progress.

Microsoft Project is now included with Microsoft's Office Suite as of the 2010 version of Microsoft Office.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
