Client/Browser settings and ActiveX controls required for PWA in Project Server 2007

ActiveX controls are used for certain functionality in Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007 and in Microsoft Office Project Web Access. In secured environments, these controls might not have been downloaded and the user might be prevented from downloading them because of security restrictions. You must download and enable these controls on the client for these features to work. Installation of ActiveX controls are listed below.

Pre-requiste:
In order for the ActiveX controls to work properly, the Office Project Web Access Web site must be added to the list of trusted sites in Internet Explorer [Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Trusted Sites]. Uncheck “Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone” settings. Pls note that PWA site works only with IE6 or later.

Which ActiveX controls?
Pj11enuc.dll, pjres12c.dll, Pjgrid12.ocx and Pjquery12.ocx
These dll’s are located in cab files – Pjclient.cab and Pjcintl.cab. These cab files are located on server where Project Server is installed, usually, C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\PWA\OBJECTS\1033. Copy these cab files from server onto client machine, extract the cab files, and execute the following commands:

  • regsvr32 dll-name
  • regsvr32 ocx-name

Doing so, will enable one to view all the grids in PWA. A more detailed explanation of these ActiveX controls is listed here.
