    I don’t see a response to Matthew McReynolds question so I am asking again – When will the Technical Preview for Project 2010 be available to those already participating in the Office 2010 Technical Preview?


  6. Currently, the Technical Preview program for Project is limited and invitation only. More details will be available during the Project Conference next week.

    Is there already a beta version available? Or any point of time, when it will be available?

  8. Sean Murphy says:


    I have been following this blog now and trying to get as much information I can over the last 2 days.

    I was wondering if one would be able to subscribe to the technical review team and become one of the reviewers of this wonderful product?

    Kind regards,

  10. Jennifer Brown says:

    Can you share details about "Web based Project editing"? How is it supposed to work? Also is there any change to the Macro interface? We are heavy macro users and want to know if our macros will still work in Project 2010.

    Hi to Everyone:

        As we join a New Decade of Computing I find that most Programs work better when we merge them.  This Project will merge Great with Windows Beta 7000.

  12. Carolyn Elaine Blanchard says:


      With hopes the Project will help with the Digital Accounting in front of us in the Music Industry, I invented the Forms for such accounting VIA the Windows Media Program, the enhancment of Muisic Streaming 24 hours in the NET makes this concept perfect for payments.  Check Google Groups for FORMS FOR INTERNET ACCOUNTING , with hopes that 2010 we can RAVE !!!!!

  13. Dear Project Team,

    My experience is that this next edition of Project should be more available, by either a striped down "Basic version" or some other way. I run in to clients who don’t have Project and then I am forced to pdf it. Include project into an "Office pac" or as mentioned release a striped down and much less costly version, your volume will more than make up for this.

    Thank you,

    Maurice Gulson

    Dear Microsoft

    Fully agree with Maurice.

    Have tested other project software, found MS Project (2007)still the best. But high price and complexity of program are issues.

    Working on these issues would do Microsoft good, rise sales and prevent pirating.
