Boy I wish I new more about Microsoft Project so that I could help you further, but I don't.
The image you attached, suggests that "Project" can't open the "file" and the files in the window look to have been produced in either Microsoft Excel and or Microsoft Word, based on the icons that I am seeing.
Do you also have Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel installed on your computer? IF so then perhaps opening the "file" with the appropriate program might help.
Otherwise you might need to resort to one of the free "Office like" productivity suite alternatives that Wolfie suggested above. My personal preference is "LibreOffice"

Hi, have you tried to repair both Project and Office?

Also, please note that over time Project files may become bloated and fragmented.

Could you try to re-create a whole new file from the corrupted/bloated file:

1. Open a new blank project file

2. Go to Insert/Project and insert the problem file.

3. Select the first task which will be the insertion point summary line.

4. Go to Project/Task Information/Advanced tab.

5. Uncheck the "Link to Project" button and hit "OK".

6. If the file isn't already expanded, expand it.

7. Select all tasks below the top level summary line.

8. Outdent the selected tasks.

9. Delete the first task which previously was a summary line.

10. Save the resulting file.

Be advised that this will eliminate all custom formatting and that the new blank file created in step 1 should be pre-formatted with custom views, fields, calendars, etc. (Try using the Organizer to import such from the Global .mpt))

If it only happens with one file, then it is likely that it is damaged. you can try for this to use Project Repair Kit for repair ms project file. http://www.project.repair/
