After upgrading a client from Microsoft Project Server 2007 to Microsoft Project Server 2013, many of the project files were opening in Compatibility Mode. Microsoft Project Server 2013 does not offer Compatibility Mode so this was especially strange to me. Below, I’ve provided the solution:


  1. Open, save and then check in the eGlobal.
  2. Open every project and make a small change (you can just change the view) and save it. Lucky for me, our Senior Support Engineer wrote a macro that would open and publish all projects that were listed in a .txt file. (Thanks, Kiran!)

Be sure you open/save/checkin the eGlobal FIRST!


Happy Scheduling! Open-mouthed smile
