I want the ability to read MS Project file (MPP) into a .NET application. Is it possible?
I can export the MPP file to XML and read it. But if I have a 25 MB MPP file, it gets exported to 300+ MB XML file. Thus the program is out of memory. Moreover, it takes 20+ minutes to export. Both these reasons make it a inviable solution.

To import MS Project file, you will be required to use Microsoft Project COM API which will require Microsoft Project installation on machine where you are importing MPP file. To import without having Microsoft Project installed, you can use mpxj.

I installed MS Project and ran my app in VS 2010 in Windows 7. It ran successfully a few days ago. Now when I run it, the "Task" node is missing. It works in XP. I reinstalled MS Project thinking the DLLs would be resynced. But no luck.
