MindMap to Project Converter

This is a simple command-line utility (disclaimer: requires .NET 2.0 Framework and Project 2007) that will read a Freemind MindMap file and create a project plan from that data. Usage is demonstrated below

FreemindConverter.exe “C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Documents\Maps\BigProject.mm” “c:\Plans\BigProject.mpp”

Be sure to use the quotes around your path, and it doesn’t matter if your MindMap file comes first or the destination file. During the conversion, any notes attached to the nodes will be attached to the tasks, along with any URL’s. If the checked icon was on the node, then the task will be marked at 100% complete.

If none of this makes sense to you, maybe you should read my article on Mind Mapping and Project Management.
