Did you ever solve the Inactivate Task Problem?  I recently migrated a large (3500 tasks) project from 2007 to 2010 Professional (2010 basic doesn’t have the “Inactivate” button or feature) and have had problems since.  Now that I’ve migrated, I can’t get Task Activate / Deactivate to work.  I followed the thread of your experience, but no one ever solved your fundamental problem.  The inactivate task button always grayed out.  2010 is a buggy beast.

I created a dummy project and the function works fine – I can activate or deactivate tasks at will.  But, my Project files that were created in 2007 do not respond.  I find it frustrating that migrating a project over adversely affects the features.

Can anyone enlighten me?  Thanks!  Todd
