Project doesn't open file after upgrade Windows

Postby RobertClancy » Tue Jun 14, 2016 5:35 am

I have a user that has been using Project 2007 for several years. He last used one particular file in November, and now when he tries to open it he gets this error message:
Project cannot open the file
--check that the file name & Path are correct
--check that the file format is recognized by project

it is a .mpp file, and was created with and had all modifications done with project 2007. The only thing that has changed in the last several months is an upgrade from Win Vista to Win 7.

I have tried opening this file on other computers and I get the same error message.
I have done a new/fresh install on a computer - same problem
I have repaired and also removed/reinstalled - same problem

Possibly a security signature in the file, restricting access to only the original program that created it.
This may be of interest.. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/274394
