Project 2016 will not open from PWA site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    This problem is unique to this PC. This works properly on other PCs with my ID.


    • Windows 8.1
    • IE11
    • Project 2016
    • Office 2016

    When I click on the Project icon on the PWA site, nothing happens.  If I do this in Chrome, I
    receive a "Project Professional needs to be installed to open the project. Install Project and try again." message.

    Project 2016 is installed properly. (I've reinstalled it about 5 times at this point.)

    I've messed around with Compatibility settings to no avail.

    I have reset IE settings to no avail.

    I have messed around with the PWA Accounts settings in 2016 *extensively*. I've completely uninstalled-reinstalled Office.

    I *can* open a project thru Project 2016 by going to the PWA site.  I just can't open a project from the PWA site.

    Anyone got anything?

    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    This is very odd. After beating the heck out of this for a week, this morning it started working correctly. I have no idea why.

    All's well that end's well, I guess.  But it would be nice to know what caused it to start working.

    Thanks again.
