Install Project Server 2010 to a stand-alone computer

 

Applies to: Project Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2013-12-18

Microsoft Project Server 2010 can be installed in a stand-alone configuration that uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express. This configuration is useful for demonstration, but should not be used for a production environment.

The stand-alone configuration has fewer features than a full farm installation. Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) and OLAP are not present in the stand-alone configurations. (Analysis Services and OLAP functionality can be configured to use a different instance of Microsoft SQL Server if you want.)

To install Project Server 2010 in stand-alone mode, you must first install Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 in stand-alone mode. This includes installing the prerequisites for SharePoint Server 2010.

To install SharePoint Server 2010 prerequisites
  1. On the SharePoint Server 2010 DVD, run default.hta.

  2. On the SharePoint Server 2010 first page, click Install software prerequisites.

  3. Follow the wizard to complete installation of all prerequisites.

    noteNote
    Depending on your configuration, you may have to restart your computer during this process.
  4. When the wizard has finished, click Finish.

Once the software prerequisites have been installed, you can install SharePoint Server 2010. Use the following procedure to install SharePoint Server 2010 in stand-alone mode.

To install SharePoint Server 2010
  1. On the SharePoint Server 2010 DVD, run default.hta.

  2. On the SharePoint Server 2010 first page, click Install SharePoint Server.

  3. On the Enter your Product Key page, type your product key, and then click Continue.

  4. On the Read the Microsoft Software License Terms page, read the license agreement and accept the terms by selecting the I accept the terms of this agreement check box.

  5. Click Continue.

  6. On the Choose the installation you want page, click Standalone.

    SharePoint Server 2010 will install.

  7. When the installation is complete, Click Close.

    The SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard starts.

  8. On the Welcome to SharePoint Products page, click Next.

  9. On the warning dialog box, click Yes.

  10. On the Configuration Successful page, click Finish.

Once SharePoint Server 2010 is installed, the next step is to install Project Server 2010 and run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard.

To install Project Server 2010
  1. On the Project Server 2010 DVD, run default.hta. The Setup menu opens.

    noteNote
    default.hta may run automatically when you insert the disk.
  2. On the Start page, click Install Project Server.

  3. On the Enter your Product Key page, type your product key, and then click Continue.

  4. In the End User License Agreement page, review the terms of the agreement. To accept the agreement, select the I accept the terms of this agreement check box.

  5. Click Continue.

  6. On the Choose a file location page, click Install Now.

  7. When the installation is complete, click Close.

    The SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard starts.

  8. On the Welcome to SharePoint Products page, click Next.

  9. On the warning dialog box, click Yes.

  10. On the Configuration Successful page, click Finish.

When the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard finishes, the system will automatically create a PWA site. This may take several minutes. When the site has been created, it can be accessed at http://<servername>/pwa.

The account that you used to install Project Server is automatically added to the Project Server Administrators group.
