Donnerstag, 19. November 2009 19:41I'm not able to connect project 2010 with project server 2007. I'm logged into my computer with a local windows account. Project 2007 had a place for me to specify my domain account as part of the setup with an enterprise project. This feature appears to be removed in project 2010? How can I use my domain account with project 2010 even though I'm logged into windows with only my local account?Thanks.

Two issues here. Project Professional 2010 can only connect to Project Server 2010. The ability to specify an account at the Project login is no longer available in 2010. The 2nd issue can be worked around by setting the zone in IE to propmt for a login. The first issue does not have any workaround.

[places soapbox carefully and stands on it]
I feel that without backward compatibility with both Project Server and Project pro there will be a negative impact to the adoption of the new project 2010. You force companies to make the project server move first - a much harder management level sell. Verses a ground swell of people using project 2010 that want the same features in project server. And you eliminate all the consultants that must work in many worlds who would gladly adopt the new Project.
[steps down off of soapbox]
I really like the new interface, features and speed. But will abandon the new to get my paycheck.

Sorry you feel that way Gene and Vasco - sometimes we need to make a step forward and invest in the new without having the cost of carry the old along with us. I fully appreciate this can cause some pain along the way. Also for some organizations the server upgrade is the "easy" bit - deployment to all their client PCs is the challange, and that is why we kept a degree of backwards compatibility from Pro 2007 to Server 2010. But totally accept your choice Gene - paycheck comes first.
