Project Professional 2010 on 32 bit format RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was told to post my questions here.

    Okey, here are the questions again:

    I have some simple questions and I don’t know if I psoted in the right place or not.

    I have done some research about these questions, but I’ve got different answers.

     

    1-      For Backwards Compatibility Mode (to use project desktopn 2007 with 2010 server) seems like we need a PWA site in 2007 version and load another PWA in 2010 and link the data bases, is this a right way to set that up? If not please provide me a link that I can learn how to setup Backwards Compatibility Mode, or any other way to use project professional desktop 2007 with prject server 2010 (64bit)

    2-      Is there any project professional 2010 available in 32 bit version or it has to be on 64 bit on a 64 bit OS?

    3-      Can we load project professional desktop 2010 on 32 bit OS?

    Greatly appreciate your answers.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi B.D.,

     

    2 - it's available in 32 bit version, and you can install this on a 64bit OS (I run all my office apps as 32 bit on a 64bit version of Windows 7).

    3 - Yes, if it's the 32 bit version.

  • Thanks,

    So if I download project professional desktop 2010 32 bit from MSDN I can load it on 32 bit OS as well as 64 bit OS, and it will work with project server 2010 64 bit (Guesing project server is only available in 64bit, please correct me if I am wrong).

    Is there any project Server 2010 available in 32 bit?

    If anyone has any idea about my furst qyestion please advice me.

    here is the question again:

    For Backwards Compatibility Mode (to use project desktopn 2007 with 2010 server) seems like we need a PWA site in 2007 version and load another PWA in 2010 and link the data bases, is this a right way to set that up? If not please provide me a link that I can learn how to setup Backwards Compatibility Mode, or any other way to use project professional desktop 2007 with prject server 2010 (64bit)

    Thank you all.

  • Hi,

    Project Server 2010 itself if only available as 64 bit. 32 bit Project clients can connect to it without issue.

    With regards to setting up backwards compatability mode, it is only available if you upgrade your Project Server 2007 databases. If you provision a new PWA site with your existing PS2007 databases, BCM will be enabled automatically. You can also create a fresh 2010 instance with BCM enabled by using a set of 'clean' 2007 databases. I wrote a blog post on it a while back at http://epmsource.com/2010/03/25/enable-backwards-compatibility-mode-on-a-fresh-project-server-2010-install/

    You can read more in general on BCM at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662496.aspx

    hope this helps.
