Project File Corruption Remains

By kennethwatson ·
I followed all the instructions on Microsoft Support Page, but my MS Project 2010 file is

still corrupted. I Saved As an XML file and reopened it into a new project file with no

luck. I've downloaded and installed the hotfix specified and nothing. Any more ideas?

Thanks in advance

I'm afraid you can only open a Project file using MS Project. There is an outside chance you can get it to work. Try creating a new project and inserting (Insert > Project) the damaged file. Moreover I suggest installing all of the latest service packs. I don't think that will "rescue" your damaged file, but it might save damage in the future. Also -- always have a good backup. I hope this helps.

1. Try installing the latest updates to Project 2010 and check the behavior.

2. Try inserting this project into subproject of a new project and then remove the link to sub project and check the behavior.


Do the following:

1. Launch Microsoft Project Professional and log into Project Server
2. Open the project in question
3. Click File - Save As - Save As File
4. Save the project as an .mpp file
5. Log into PWA with administrator permissions
6. Click Admin - Clean Up Project Server Database
7. Delete the project and its associated SharePoint subweb
