Error connecting Project 2010 to Project Server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

     

    I've seen lots of variants of this question in the forum, but none quite like what i'm looking for.

     

    I have Project Professional 2010 and Project Server 2007. Formerly i had Project 2007 and when i choose to connect to Project Server, Project 2007 would ask my credentials and connect to the server without any Problem.

    In Project 2010 I have added my Server account but when i have to connect this happens

    1) It doesn't even ask for my credentials, who know what credentials is taking i haven´t found where to indicate my Project Server user and password

    2) After a while trying to connect it gives me this error: First, "No permissions to read Project Server Enterprise Global file"  and after i hit OK, ""

    Any help or guidance will be highly appreciated.

     

    Kind Regards

    Luis

    You CANNOT connect Microsoft Project 2010 to Project Server 2007.  That is the source of your problem.  So, I think you need to revert back to Microsoft Project 2007.  Hope this helps.

  • I can't believe how much MS does not respect their customers. It is incredible that a product bought 2 years ago needs to be changed now with no compatibility. 

     

    It's a shame to treat customers like they do. Let's not be surprise if we use cracked versions...

  • This is brutal and very disappointing.   I have just assigned a team of 40 Technologist to complete the MS Project Server implementation processes to find out we have to go back to 2007 Client?

    I have been the big proponent in pushing our entire enterprise towards extending the use of 2010 due to its tight integration of Sharepoint and such.  In light of this I will be going with my tail between my legs and likely succoming to the Google platforms for integration.

    How unfortunate.

  • wimvem & JPO59 - Just out of curiosity - why would you not go ahead and upgrade your Project SERVER version as well?  Then you can utilize the 2010 Client with all the new features of 2010 Project Server and 2010 SharePoint.
