About browser support

Microsoft Office Project Web Access is used for online access to Microsoft Office Project Server 2007. The Web browsers used by Office Project Web Access require the download and installation of required ActiveX controls. This requirement means that only Level 1 Web browsers are supported for use with Office Project Web Access.

As part of planning your deployment of Office Project Server 2007, we recommend that you review the browsers used in your organization to ensure optimal performance with Office Project Server 2007.

Browsers supported for use with Project Server 2007

Level 1 Web browsers take advantage of advanced features provided by ActiveX controls and provide the most complete user experience. Level 1 browsers also offer full functionality on all SharePoint sites, including the Central Administration Web site. Level 1 browsers that are supported for use with Project Server 2007 include:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x (32-bit)

  • Windows Internet Explorer 7.x (32-bit)

  • Windows Internet Explorer 8.x (32-bit)

  • Windows Internet Explorer 9.x (32-bit)

    NoteNote:

    All other browsers not listed above (Level 1 or other) are not supported for use with Project Server 2007.

    NoteNote:

    Support for the Level 1 browsers listed above is only available for computers running the Windows operating system.

    NoteNote:

    The 64-bit versions of Windows Internet Explorer are not supported because they do not allow you to run the ActiveX controls required for Office Project Web Access.

Editing grids in Project Web Access with Internet Explorer 9

Currently, if you use Internet Explorer 9 to access Office Project Server 2007, you may encounter a small issue with editing grids on certain pages. On these specific pages, when the entire contents of an editable cell are deleted, data cannot be added to the cell until the page is refreshed. If you modify the content of a cell on these pages, you must ensure that all the content of the cell is not completely removed. To completely replace the contents of the cell, select all the text contained within the cell and replace that with the new string. This issue affects the grid on the following pages:

  • My Tasks

  • My Timesheet

  • Proposals and Activities > New Activity

  • Status Report Request > Sections group

  • Server Settings > Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables > Edit Lookup Table > Lookup table group

  • Server Settings > Line Classifications

  • Server Settings > Time Reporting Periods à Create Periods

  • Server Settings > Cube Configuration > Calculated Measures group

  • Server Settings > Administrative Time

Browsers not supported for use with Project Server 2007

All other browsers other than Level 1 browsers are not supported for use with Office Project Server 2007. This includes all Level 2 browsers such as Firefox 1.5, Mozilla, and Netscape Navigator 8.1.

Older browsers — such as Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 5.5x, Internet Explorer for Macintosh, and older versions of third-party level 2 browsers — are not supported.

Enabling ActiveX controls on the client in secure environments

Some of the features in Office Project Server 2007 use ActiveX controls on the client to provide functionality. In secured environments, these controls might not have been downloaded and the user might be prevented from downloading them because of security restrictions. You must download and enable these controls on the client for these features to work.

The ActiveX controls reside in two .cab files that are located on your Project Server site in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\PWA\OBJECTS\1033

The following are the two .cab files:

  • Pjclient.cab

  • Pjcintl.cab (in the 1033 subfolder or other language folders)

These two cab files contain the following files:

Pjcintl.cab:

  • langcabENU12.inf (This file is not required to manually install controls.)

  • Pj12ENUc.dll

Pjclient.cab:

  • Microsoft.vc80.crt.manifest (This file is not required for the manual installation of controls.)

  • Msvcr80.dll

  • Pjgrid12.ocx

  • Pjprint12.dll

  • Pjquery12.ocx

  • Pjres12c.dll

  • Pjtextconv12.dll

To enable client-side controls

  1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator.

  2. Connect to the Project Server, and then copy the Pjclient.cab file and the Pjcintl.cab file from the following folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\PWA\OBJECTS\1033

  3. Paste the files in a folder on the computer.

  4. Double-click the Pjcintl.cab file to open it, and then click the Pj11enuc.dll file.

  5. On the File menu, click Extract.

  6. Expand My Computer, expand Local Disk, expand Windows, and then click Downloaded Program Files.

  7. Click Extract.

  12. Click Extract.

  13. Close the Pjclient.cab file.

  14. Click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK.

  15. Type CD %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Downloaded Program Files, and then press ENTER.

  16. Type regsvr32 pj12enuc.dll , and then press ENTER.
