Hi everyone,

One of my customers would like to start using microsoft project for 2 people. They want that their employees can work togheter without the need of having to buy the Microsoft Project server (They don't want to spend this kind of money)

Does Microsoft Project Professional on 2 clients support this or what kind of collaboration is supported if you don't have the server?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

There is a work around to do so, I suggest installing WSS [Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services ] "http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/sharepoint/bb267375"; and publish the project on it .

by that both 2 "even more" can edit the files, and the updates are always kept on server "Share".

yes, it is free.

and you can install it on any machine you have or even on even a hosted server, so it will be accessible by everyone.

So if 2 client computers install this, use a shared map on a fileserver to store the project, they could access it both?

Or do you prefer it to install sharepoint services on the server?

I just don't understnd on which pc you have to install these services.

Thanks for your reply already ;)

you do not have to install the WSS on client machines, only on server , as it has a web access.

So on both the clients, you need microsoft project professional/Standard

And then on a server WSS. What acutally does WSS to allow the clients to work with the single file in the share? Versioncontrol or anything?

yes, all of that is correct.

WSS allow Collaboration.

also you can use an online hosting, i.e http://www.123together.com/SharePoint/SharePoint-Foundation-2010-Pricing.xhtml

Ah so actually you go to the sharepoint page of the server and you see the gui from project or how is it used?

Do you maybe have a guide how to set-up this?

I have found these templates for sharepoint: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/results.aspx?qu=sharepoint+project&origin=TC001130773
Are they necessary or what is it used for?

you will only need to setup the WSS, then upload your MS Project file to the documents, after that you can open this file directly from the WSS website and when any changes are done; and save; changes are saved on the WSS not locally.

No need for any templates, it is additional stuff that you can use if you want.

Ok thanks Amgad, do you need some requirements and pre-requistments to install WSS?
I did a clean install of Windows 2008 R2 and am unable to install WSS.

Thanks in advance!

you can check this http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/installation2/how-do-i-install-windows-sharepoint-services-

I believe that you need to have Asp.net installed, and sql express/ sql server.
