  • Hi,

    For viewing, you can find on Internet some web viewers.

    For editing, I'm afraid the only workaround is to install on your MAC a VM with Windows and MS Project.

    Hope this helps,

  • Clash,

    Yes, I have an iMac running El Capitan 10.11.3. I have been using Parallels (currently 11.1.3) for many years to emulate Windows XP and Windows 7 and I have had no problems running MS Office and MS Project over various versions. There are other virtual machine emulators (e.g. VMWare, Bootcamp), and some viewers as Guillaume mentioned, it just depends on whether you want full capability with Project or only the ability to read files.

    Hope this helps.

  • To concur, I'm running (current versions) Project 2013 on Windows 10 which in turn is on Parallels which in turn is on Mac ... for years no problem.
