Project Libre – Free Project Viewer
We have been looking for a good Project viewer for years, but never really found one that suits our needs.
We have never really understood why Microsoft would release viewers for Word, Excel and even Visio but not for Project! We have tried a number of viewers with the least worst one being OpenProj. However, we have now been using a piece of open source software called Project Libre and it is perfect.
We are really impressed with the way it works and it is even better that it comes in a MSI installer format so that it can even be put into your Software Catalog in Configuration Manager as an application.
Although we have primarily used it as just a viewer, it can actually be used to make amendments to projects too so it could be classed as an open source replacement for Microsoft Project.
Overall, as an open source package and if you take it as so, it is absolutely brilliant and probably the best on the open source market at the moment. You can download the program in MSI format from the developers SourceForge site by clicking the link below:
