  • Hi,

    Add your site to compatible view using compatible view settings of your IE. Also add PWA site to Trusted sites of your browser.

    hope this helps.

  • Try open this within Project Professional and then publish back to PWA.

    If this does not work it might be work going to IE > File > New session then navigating to the project again.

  • Hi,

    One of the things you can try is to open the project in MS Project and publish it.

    After that, try again to open the project in PWA

  • Hi,

    It looks like you have a corruption. Have you tried to open the project in read-only mode in PWA? If it works then open the project in MS Project by selecting the Published version and re-save, overwriting the draft version. An alternative would be to restore an archived version of the project.

    If that doesn't work, try installing the latest CU for both MS Project/Project Server and test again. And if that doesn't work either, I would suggest opening a support case with Microsoft
