How to Install Microsoft Project: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re wondering how to install Microsoft Project on your computer, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll provide you with a brief overview of what you need before starting the installation process and then give you specific instructions in an easy-to-follow format.

Checking System Requirements

Before you begin, it’s important to ensure that your PC meets the necessary system requirements. Here’s a list of the supported Project versions for 2019, 2016, and 2013. If you have Project 2010 or 2007, we’ll cover additional steps at the end of this article.

Installing Project with a Cloud-Based Subscription

If you’re using a cloud-based subscription like Project Online Professional or Project Online Premium, you’ll need an assigned license to install Microsoft Project. Without the assigned license, the installation option won’t be available to you.

Installing Project Standard or Project Professional

For non-subscription versions like Project Standard or Project Professional, you most likely received a product key after your purchase. Before installing MS Project, sign in with your Microsoft account, either an existing one or create a new account. During the sign-in process, enter the product key you received to link it to your account.

Additional Information

Depending on your project version, redeeming your product key may require different steps. Some versions might not require a Microsoft account or a school/work account. If you purchased your project through Microsoft HUP (Home Use Program), search for “Install Office through HUP” for more accurate instructions.

Step 1: Sign In

To begin, visit the website and click on “Sign In.” Sign in with the appropriate account for your project version. Non-subscription versions typically use Microsoft accounts, while subscription versions use work/school accounts. Once signed in, follow the instructions specific to your project version.

For Project Standard/Professional non-subscription, follow these steps:

  1. Click on “Install Office” from the home page.
  2. Find your desired project version and click on “Install.”

For Project Online Professional/Premium, follow these steps:

  1. Click on “Install Office apps” from the home page.
  2. Click on “Other Install options.”
  3. Under the “Software” heading, select “Project.”
  4. Choose your language and desired version.

If you don’t see Project under the Software heading, it’s likely you don’t have an assigned license. Contact your admin to ensure you have the necessary license.

Step 2: Install Project

To complete the installation process, click on “Run,” “Setup,” or “Save File” depending on your browser (Edge/Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Firefox). You’ll then be prompted to allow the app to adjust your device. Choose “Yes” to proceed with the installation.

Once the installation is complete, a message will confirm that Project has been successfully installed. An animation will help you locate the app on your device.

Installing Project on Office 2007 and 2010

For Office 2007 and 2010 installations, follow these steps:

  1. If you have a product key, insert your Office 2010 disc and the setup wizard should start. If not, go to the disc’s drive and click on SETUP.EXE. Alternatively, you can download and install Office using the product key.
  2. Enter your product key when prompted.
  3. Accept the Terms and Conditions and click “Continue.”
  4. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.
  5. Activate the software over the Internet to ensure full functionality. If you don’t activate it during installation, you can still do it afterward by clicking on File, then Help, and selecting “Activate Product Key.”
