I have seen a couple discussions elsewhere that say “yes – however,…” so I am asking here.Here is my scenario, We have a current environment with Project Server 2007 and Project Pro 2007 clients running the latest Service Packs there.
I am in the process of standing up a Test environment running Project Server 2010. As the above platform runs 4 instances ran by interested parties I will need to standup Project Server 2010 in compatibility mode and then switch to full 2010 capabilites once all clients are upgraded (about 150 clients).
Here is my challenge, myself and a couple of others will be doing full testing forward and back in the Development environment with 2010 and 2007 clients but I also must maintain a working functionality of my Project Professional 2007 Client back to the Project Server 2007 production platform.
I envision at a minimum we will experience file/executable issues and will need to ensure we have the correct associations in place when opening versioned files. ie when in the Production environment ensure .mpp is associated with my 2007 winproj.exe file and when in the testing mode know which winproj.exe is being opened for the specific test we want.
Has anyone had any experience with something like this and can provide some insight into other things we might need to consider?
