  • If you have 32 bit of Office then you have to install 32 bit of ms project.

    With 32 bit of office 64 bit of ms project will give issue while installation.

  • I understand that. The problem was that the system wasn't keen on letting me have the 32 bit version after downloading the 64 bit.

    I found a thread with some suggestions and managed to download the 32-bit image. When I tried to enter the product code to activate it I got a message telling me that the system couldn't process my request at the moment and to try later. Unfortunately, it wouldn't let me minimize and I had to cancel the transaction, which left me with an unactivated trial copy that expires in 30 days and presumably is lacking some functionality. Not impressed.

    At this point I'm not sure I even see any point to continuing with the trial. If the software itself is half as badly thought out as the trial download, it's worse than useless.
