How does RiskyProject manage MS Project Master schedules?

Essentially RiskyProject merges a master schedule with n subprojects into 1 large schedule. Cross project links are converted into standard links such as in a schedule in MS Project is converted to RiskyProject schedule. You will not notice this if you run the analysis using the RiskyProject MSP Addin; however, if you open the Master Project in RiskyProject you will see that cross project links are shown as a standard link in the Predecessors tab of the Task Information view.
In addition, if you compare the task numbering, RiskyProject renumbers all tasks in the Master Schedule; whereas in MS Project each subproject has its own task numbering. Because MS Master Projects do not have unique task numbers (there can be n Task 1s etc.) this RiskyProject relies on unique WBS IDs to properly convert the subprojects to a single project file.
