Project 2010 licensing question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

     

    For the first time, I am supporting Project 2010 and have installed it as an unlicensed reader on my image.  I just had a user tell me that as an unlicensed and unactivated product, she was able to edit a few items in a project file and this concerns me.  Can someone please enlighten me on if this is the norm?  I am in the process of telling my user that she needs a license to use the product but in the mean time, I want to be prepared if another user asks me further questions.

     

    As always, all assistance is appreciated!

    Be sure to activate the Project Professional 2010 Trial within 30 days to avoid defaulting to “viewer mode” – a mode that disables document editing.

    Project Professional trials expire in 60 days. After the trial expires, the application will switch to Reduced Functionality mode, which will allow you to still open Project 2010 documents and save them as Project 2007 files.
