Will MS Project Standard 2007 work on a Surface Pro running Windows 8.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having difficulty transferring my Project 2007 Standard to my Surface Pro.

    Is the SP with Windows 8.1 able to run Project 2007, or are my transfer problems being caused by another issue?

  • Hi G Corbino,

    What kind of "problem" are you talking about? Since it is the standard version (and not the Pro version connected to Project Server), we are not talking about IE compatibility.

    Project 2007 is compatible with Windows 7 both 32bit and 64bit. I guess it is also compatible for Windows 8.1.
    How are you running setup? How are you logged on as? Adminstrator or Standard user?

    Do you have any trial versions of Project 2007 or any trial versions of Office installed? If so, uninstall them first and then try again to install Project 2007.
    After the uninstall, reboot the computer and then try to install again.

    Hope this helps.
