Install Project Server 2013 to a stand-alone computer

Published: July 16, 2012

Summary: Set up a simple Project Server 2013 installation for demonstration purposes.

Applies to:  Project Server 2013 

Project Server 2013 can be installed in a stand-alone configuration that uses SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition with SP1. 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. 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 SQL Server if you want.)

Important Important:

We recommend installing the standalone configuration on a computer that has at least 24GB of RAM.

To install Project Server 2013 in stand-alone mode, you must first install SharePoint Server 2013 in stand-alone mode. This includes installing the prerequisites for SharePoint Server 2013.

To install SharePoint Server 2013 prerequisites

  1. On the SharePoint Server 2013 DVD, run default.hta.

  2. On the SharePoint Server 2013 first page, click Install software prerequisites.

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

    note Note:

    Depending on your configuration, you may have to restart your computer during this process.

  4. When the wizard has finished, click Finish.

  5. After you complete the Microsoft SharePoint Products Preparation Tool, you must also install the following hotfixes:

Once the software prerequisites have been installed, restart the computer before installing SharePoint Server 2013.

After you have restarted the computer, use the following procedure to install SharePoint Server 2013 in stand-alone mode.
