MSP Crashes trying to save as XML or after saving multiple times as MPD


  • Recently my project file has started to be buggy during saves.  The first save after opening the file and making changes is never a problem if I'm still saving as an MPD file, but if I try to save again without closing the file, it often (not always) crashes.

    More recently (and this is my bigger problem), when I attempt to save the project file in XML format it crashes.  Technically it begins the process and creates a shell xml file, but then project crashes.  The xml file that it started to create is of course incomplete.

    I'm a decent scheduler but not an IT guy.  If my file has become corrupted any ideas what I can do?

    I'm working with MSP 2016 version 6.0.9226.2126

  • R_Murr and others,

    I'm a little confused by the statement about saving Project 2016 as an MPD. According to Microsoft literature, (, "Project 2016 cannot open or save to the MPD format". So how exactly are you saving?

    If you can't successfully save the file as XML you could try the other methods described in this Wiki article:
