MS Project Standard Requirements and Compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am currently running MS Project Standard 2007 on Windows 2007 with MS Office 2010.   A colleague of mine, running the same configuration, attempted to upgrade to MS Project 2013, but complained that MS Project 2013 "Crashed" when she tried to use it, and was not able to get around the problem.   She went back to MS Project 2007.

    I have a business need to upgrade to at least MS Project 2013, as my customer is using that version.   I need to know the "gotcha's" with upgrading from 2007 to 2013, or perhaps 2016.   


    1. Is there any issue with running a different version of MS Project then MS Office (there didn't seem to be with MS Project 2007)?  
    2. How backward compatible is MS Project Standard 2013?  
    3. Same question for MS Project Standard 2016?
    4. What preparations (if any) do I need to do to my laptop before attempting to upgrade?

    Bottom line, what do I need to do to make a successful upgrade from MS Project Standard 2007 to 2013  or 2016?
