Step 1: Sign in to download Project

Project Online (Professional or Premium)
Subscription version

  1. From the Office home page select Install Office apps > Other install options. (If you set a different start page, go to admin.microsoft.com/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.)
  2. Under Software, select Project. Choose the language and the bit version you want, then select Install. (To install 64-bit, under Version, select Advanced, choose 64-bit, and then select Install.)
  3. Tip: If Project isn’t listed under the Software navigation heading on the left-side of your page, it probably means you don’t have a license. Check if you have a license and if you don’t, contact your admin and ask to have one assigned to you.

Project should now begin downloading. Follow the prompts in Step 2 to complete the installation.

Step 2: Install Project

  1. Depending on your browser, select Run (in Edge or Internet Explorer), Setup (in Chrome), or Save File (in Firefox).

If you see the User Account Control prompt that says, Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? select Yes.

The install begins.

Your install is finished when you see the phrase, “You’re all set! Project is installed now” and an animation plays to show you where to find the Project app on your computer.

Follow the instructions in the window to find Project, for example depending on your version of Windows, select Start and then scroll to find Project from your list of apps.
