MICROSOFT PROJECT 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft Project 2010 is installed on computer. I installed 2016 thinking it would install over 2010 and save the projects in 2016 but it installed as a stand alone program.  How do I get the projects from 2010 to insert into 2016?

  • You should be able to open Project 2016 by openning the projects on your disk drive by navigating to the location of the MPP files.

    Project pro client 2016 does not work with project server 2010.

  • Michael, where I find a checklist before I start Installing and Configuring MS Project Server from the scratch. Kinda a road map checklist to make sure MS Project Server is setup correctly in first shot. Any feedback and guidance will be appreciated.

  • I haven't seen a check list published, not to say that one doesn't exist.   There are many good blogs that show most of the steps.  As a quick and easy test for verifying that project serve is installed properly,  i would say that this would be a good one

    1) Create, save and publish a project

    2) Verify that SharePoint Site is created

    3) Create resources in enterprise pool and perhaps sync an AD group with PWA security groups

    4) check to make sure that reports run properly

    5) Accessing all the options of PWA Server settings.

    Basically if you can read and update the project server, then the database can be read from and written to
