Does PWA 2010 include ActiveX controls to launch in Project Pro 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The issue I am having is that until today I have been unable to launch projects in MSP2007 from PWA2010. The option was always grayed out, and attempts to check out the global resulted in an error telling me to have project open and no dialog boxes, etc. After reading the KB article at I decided it could be missing active X controls, and went about tracking down an equivalent of the and on our instance of Server 2010. I cant seem to find them. Does MS assume that anyone connecting to PWA2010 with Proj2007 had originally connected to PWA2007 and gotten the activeX controls or something? I know the grids in 2010 dont use them, but they seem to be still needed to launch on client?

    Unfortunately in my environment we never had server 2007 deployed, so no one will have the files. Further, I dont have much control on when we move to Project 2010 clients. I was able to find them on a VM of 2007 server, and we could go about deploying them throughout the organization, but I would rather avoid the paperwork of setting that up if PWA2010 is just misbehaving. If I do need to deploy them, is the best way to get the most up to date versions finding a VM of server 2007 sp3?

    Anyway, we are on ie. 7.0.5730.13 so that could be another issue all together.

    Project 2007 SP2(upgrading to SP3 is probably an option but again paperwork)

    Project Server 2010, initial release(will but admin about putting latest version of that.)
