  • Make sure you upgraded the SharePoint Site Collection to SharePoint 2013. If you're running in "SharePoint 2010 compatibility", it won't have the required features for Project Server 2013 yet.

  • But I did the upgrade of SharePoint site collection as well. I test it on my VM and it works fine but fails on production.

    Do you have any other suggestions in mind? Thank you.

  • No sorry, I had the same issue but was fixed by upgrading the Site Collection.
