Project 2007 for School RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having trouble downloading a trial version of Project 2007 that I need for school.  What are the steps, and or software items I need to download to get this program up and running?  I am currently rinning Windows 7 as my operating system on an AMD Phenom II.

    The trial version of Project 2007 hasn't been available for a couple of years. It was replaced by the trial version of Project 2010, which as far as I know is also no longer available because it has been replaced by the trial version of Project 2013. You may be able to find a trial version of Project 2007 or Project 2010 that is included with a tutorial type book but I wouldn't know where to direct you for that. You could try a Google or Bing search.

    Why exactly do you want Project 2007?

  • I am enrolled in a project scheduling class (CNBT-1359), and Project 2007 is the program we are using.  Are there a lot of changes between 2007 and what is available today?

  • Glenn149,

    A "lot" is subjective. The following website gives a rundown of what was deleted and what was added in Project 2010:

    This website outlines the new features in Project 2013:

    Does your class have a textbook or similar? If so, there might be a trial copy of Project 2007 included. But perhaps your best source for obtaining a trial version of Project is to ask your instructor or if you are taking the course on-line, the company/institution offering the course.

    However, any version of Project will have the basics that are likely to be covered in the CNBT-1359 course material. So for that, you could try buying Project 2007 from an on-line auction site such as eBay or download the trial version of Project 2013 from the Microsoft Project site at:

    Hope this helps.
