Microsoft Project Professional 2007 Trial Version

    I have tried several times to download the trial version of Microsoft Office
    Project Professional 2007. This Trial offers a 180 day trial period to
    evaluate the application prior to purchase.

    When launching this file, I expected to be taken to Windows Installer to
    install the application so that I could begin using it to determine if it
    will satisfy my needs. Instead, I had the following experiences:

    In all instances I was given the options to "cancel", "save", or to "find a
    program online to open it".

    In two cases, I attempted to find a program online to open it. In each
    case, I was diverted to the Windows File Association screen and offered
    alternatives for finding a program that could run this file. Windows had no
    suggestions of what application I should use.

    In two other cases, I saved the file to my hard disk. The file saved each
    time was "ProjectProfessional.img". When I attempted to launch this file, I
    was diverted to the Windows File Association screen and offered alternatives
    for finding a program that could run this file. Windows had no suggestions
    of what application I should use.

    Can anyone please provide me with guidance on how to appropriately download,
    install and launch the Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007 Trial
    version?

    Thank you.

    Hello Michael D.

    See the following:

    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/express/aa718401.aspx

    Although it refers to "Express Editions" the information under
    "Manually Installing an Express Edition on a local machine" give step
    by step instructions on working with *.img files.

    See also:

    for some references to other programs (other than Roxio and IsoBuster)
    which will work with *.img files.

    I hope this helps. Let us know how you get along.

    Thanks, JulieS. IsoBuster did the trick!
