Guys I don’t have Microsoft Project installed on my computer and I don’t want to purchase one right now. Can anyone tell me how can I view ms project files without ms project?
How to View ms project files without ms project software installed in the computer
1) Using Gantter.com:
Gantter.com provides a free online project manager which works similar to MS Project. Guntter gives you the option to import .mpp files which mean that now the partner can visit gantter.com, import the .mpp file created by us and view it online for free. It’s all simple to do, just upload and view or edit the file.
If you are handy with MS Project, then Gantter will turn out to be an easy and productive tool for you.
2) Using Project viewer central:
You can view the MS project files on your PC without MS Project installed in your PC with the help of Project viewer central application. You can download its trial version.
3) Using Kadonk live project:
Another standalone application that helps you to view the MS Project files. It comes with the features of viewing Gantt charts, tasks, and many other MS project data without MS project installed on your machine.
4) Using Rational plan viewer:
It works on all platforms. And is another free software which is a good alternative for MS project to view MS project files.
5) Using Project.to :
Project.to provides us with the options to upload, view and even share .mpp files online. It offers both free and paid services. You can delete files immediately after viewing them. Project.to allows us to save files on MS Project server licenses.
Other useful features of the project.to include change/version management, Collaboration, Email integration, Gantt charting, Milestone tracking, Project template integration, Progress reporting, Resource management, Scheduling and Workforce management. It is supported on almost all platforms.
There are few other software available to view MS Project files. But these are my picks.
Hope these helps you.
