Installing a trial version of Project Server 2010 - Error: Cant install trial copy of Project Server.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just downloaded the trial version of Project Server 2010 and the Partner Licenced copy of SPS2010 Ent.

    I get an error message saying that a trial version of Project 2010 cannot be installed on licenced versions of SPS or Web Apps.  Any good ideas?

  • Thanks for that - this might sound daft, but i need to uninstall our licensed Sharepoint Server software first?

    It's just we only have one server - 4 of us in the company - and i dont like the idea of doing that.

    I would add as a general comment intot he ether that not being able to install a trial version of a server based software onto a licensed server is absolutely potty.  but there's probably a good techy reason why i can't see this :-)

  • If you're just piloting Project Server, I would be reluctant to throw it
    on your main SharePoint farm and potentially remove it later.  I'd recommend
    getting a standalone box just for this purpose (or use a hosted solution).
     Depending on your users, you won't need really complicated specs to support
    a pilot.
