yes openproj can open, but mess the document, and cant save in any compatible format... so it is not an option... it worls only for personal use projects, if you need MS project compat, you shoud try MS Project 2003 (you can do it using wine). or that VM alternative... personally i hate VM, but the project version 2007/2010 is unusable via wine (u can do it with 2007 using crossover, but it is not free).
with crossover i made it work (using the crossover trial version) im runing it via wine from the crossover folder (env WINEPREFIX="/home/pastorelli/.cxoffice/Microsoft Office 2007" wine '/home/pastorelli/.cxoffice/Microsoft Office 2007/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12/WINPROJ.EXE')
I've heard some people that used that version wich needs activation, made it via wine with a lot of headaches.
with some debugging, i found that wine dont make the class id bindings properly, causing this error, but i made no progress by adding them manually.
by the way, dont even give a try on any version later than 2007, actually no way to run it, not even the installer will run.
winetricks msxml3 dotnet20 gdiplus riched20 riched30 vcrun2005
tips: if you keep getting vcrun errors, download the vcrun2005 from microsoft distributable package.
use a clean prefix to install Office applications it is quite buggy, ex: WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-msoffice
