Just intalled Project 2010 - Task Mode buttons disabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Project 2010. The task mode defaults to auto-scheduled and the Manual/Auto Scheduled buttons are disabled. Is there a setting I have missed.

    Cheers Alex

  • It may be that you're opening a 2007 file or in compatibility mode somehow.  Save it as 2010 or try a new project.

  • Alex,

    Are you perhaps in the Resource Usage view? The Manual/Auto buttons only work for a task or Task Usage view.

  • Hi Alex,

    I experieced the same thing; in my case I discovered there is a sort of issue between Project and the Windows registry (beats me to now what). If you create a new account on the machine, this type of error (and a few others) disappears when you execute Prohject in the new account.
