  • Hi Ariel,

    Have you tried to repair MS Project from the control panel?

    Hope this helps,

  • Try this.

    In Control Panel, Regional Settings, set your region preferences to US.

    No one knows why this works but it does.

    Afterwards you can set it back to your region and the visual reports continue to work ok.

  • Just did it , didn't work for me....

    Anyone else plz ?

    Its very important feature for our company , and I hate the fact that MS wants 1k$ for support

    for a buggy software they released....

  • Hi Ariel,

    Do you have components from other Office version installed? If so, can you try to remove them and run a Repair for Office?

    I think you can also try to run a repair for Office without uninstalling anything and see if that would help
