MPP is the file extension used by Microsoft Project, a project management software developed by Microsoft Corporation.
This application is Microsoft’s third windows-based product and become the dominant project management software.
Microsoft Project is favorite at project managers for developing plans, assigning resources, track progress, analyze workloads, and manage budget.
MS Project is part of the Microsoft Office family, but it is sold as separate product and stand alone product.
So far, Microsoft hasn't created a viewer, and although you can open Microsoft Project File with MS Project, this approach could become cost prohibitive if you need to implement Project across the board.
Luckily, there are alternatives for opening MPP files without having Microsoft Project installed on your device.
