Installing Project Server Binary Files – Step 1

Install the Office Project Server 2007 binary files

When installing the Office Project Server 2007 binary files (or "bits"), you will have the option to configure the installation to deploy both the Application and Web Front end tier to the computer, or to install just the Web Front End tier.

  • Navigate to the installation location for Office Project Server 2007, and then double-click the Setup.exe file to begin Setup.
  • On the Enter Product Key page, type the 25-character product key, and then click Continue.
  • On the End User License Agreement page, view the terms of the agreement. Select I accept the terms of the agreement, and then click Continue.
  • On the Choose the Installation you Want page, click Advanced.

 Note   For the Beta 2 release, the Basic installation option does work correctly and should not be used.

  • On the next screen, on the Server Type tab, select Complete to choose to install the Web front-end server and application server.

 Note   If you want to install a Web front-end server to an existing farm, those steps will be covered later in this guide.

On the File Location tab, you can specify the location to which you want the bits to be installed. The default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers.

On the Feedback tab, you can elect to participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program. If you elect to participate, with your permission anonymous information will be gathered from your experience with the product for the sole purpose of improving it. The default selection is I’ll choose later. This option can be configured later by using SharePoint Central Administration.

Click Install Now. The Office Project Server 2007 application tier and Web tier components are installed onto the computer.

  • When installation of the binary files is completed, the Setup Complete page is displayed and prompts you to complete the configuration of your server. If you want to continue, verify that Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard now is selected, and then click Close.
