How To Open a MPP File?

How can I open a file with the mpp extension?
I just downloaded the MPP file and need to open it using my computer but when I click on the file a popup notifies me that there is no application that can open the file at the moment and I have to choose from a list of program to open the MPP file. None of them work.
Do I need microsoft project to open it? Is there anyway to open the MPP file if I don't have this microsoft project program?

I would recommend you check out this site.
You will need software to open these types of MPP files.

You either need Microsoft Project or a viewer. Otherwise the MPP file won't open.
There are a few options for viewing MS Project (mpp) files without needing to buy MS Project itself. Namely ProjectViewerCentral or Steelray. But you need to pay for those.
See if you can find a free MPP file viewer.

free mpp viewer
You can try MOOS Project Viewer. It is a free MS Project viewer that can open .mpp files:

Project Viewer
To view a Microsoft Project 2007 file (.mpp) you can buy a Project Viewer, in which you will be able to open a Project 2007 file in Project 2003 as a read-only file. keep in mind that if you save a Project 2007 file to the Microsoft Project 2000 - 2003 MPP format, you can lose data in areas where Project 2007 contains enhanced functionality. You can get a free 15 day trial of Microsoft Project Viewer on our website
