  • Hi Johan,

    It look like your friends MS Project installation got corrupted somehow.

    Have you tried to run a repair of the MS Project installation on your friends machine? or tried to repair the mpp file using save to XML and save back the file or tools like ?

    Also, another thing to try is to Reset the Default settings in Project 2013

    Hope this helps

  • Johan,

    The command to save a baseline doesn't and configure bar styles is two different commands.  Can you please let us know how you are attempting to save the baseline?  Also you cannot see baseline bars in the Bar Styles dialog box - unless you have turned them on first.  Try applying the Tracking Gantt chart - which shows the baselines by default.

    You don't state what version of Project you are using but to check Service Packs for Project 2010 - File > Help.  Click the Additional Version and Copyright Information link under About Microsoft Project.
