Microsoft Project 98 to 2016 file conversion

I have some old Microsoft Project 98 files and cannot open the files with Project 2016.  I cannot find the install disk for Project 98.  Is there any way to convert the 98 version files so that they can be opened by Project 2016?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Since you do not have the old version, you will probably need a service to convert the file.

Project Viewer states that it opens MSP98 and then allows export.

MSP2010 will open MSP98 files, then MSP2016 will open MSP2010 files
Perhaps you can find that version, or someone with that version to help you.

Open Source ("might" be helpful) e.g.
https://www.projectlibre.com/product/projectlibre-open-source
http://www.mpxj.org/ >> http://sourceforge.net/projects/mppviewer (based on mpxj.org library) but may only go as far back as MSP2000

In future, archive using an XML format (NOT! the .mpp format!)

I was able to locate a copy of Project 2010, which allowed me to open the 98 verion and save as the newer file type.  2016 can open the 2010 version.
