Project Server 2007 Beta 2 TR VM

I usually don't announce the availability of the Project Server 2007 VMs on my blog.  But since the beta program is closing down, it hasn't really been announced anywhere else.  So… (trumpets sound)…  the Project Server 2007 Beta 2 TR VM has been available on BetaPlace for all the beta participants for about a week.  Look for it under "Other" files.  For some reason the Beta 2 VM is still available on the main screen and it makes for some confusion in finding the new VM.

Some of you may have heard but BetaPlace for Office 2007 closes at the end of this month.  But fear not there will still be a place to find information, Microsoft Connect.  The Microsoft Connect site is a new post RTM community area and has a dedicated section for Project.  I have been told that the Beta 2 TR VM will be posted for download from Connect in the beginning of November.  If any of you don't have access to BetaPlace, or for beta participants after Nov 1st, this will be your opportunity to grab the VM.

    The VPC does come up with a hardware warning when you start it in VPC2004 / VPC2007beta saying incompatible hardware.

    It does then start, but performs quite slowly compared to other VPCs.  

    Any thoughts? (an idea I had, is that it started life in Virtual Server..??)

    Yes the VM started life in Virtual Server, which is why the warning appears.  But it was tested in Virtual Server and Virtual PC and I didn’t see any adverse effects being in Virtual PC.  These images can be pretty memory hungry, try uping the memory to see if it helps especially if you are using Project Pro, or any of the thick client applications.

    Unfortunately, I’ve missed the Beta registration phase for Project Server 2007.

    I’ve retrieve the Project Server 2007 B2 VM with my contact at Microsoft. But for this new release, unfortunalty I can’t find a way to download it.

    If you guys can help me ?

    (Direct access to the download page ?)

    Thank you

    At this point there really is nothing to do but wait for the RTM bits to be avilable through the distribution channels (MSDN, Select, etc…).
