Run Microsoft Project for the First Time
When you run Microsoft Project for the first time, a dialog may appear asking if you want to migrate settings from a Global.mpt file. Since each version may have different settings, you may run into problems later on.
A best practice is to start Microsoft Project without migrating the Global.MPT file.
If you a Planning Wizard dialog appears, such as the one shown in the figure, follow these steps:
- Select the Cancel. Done perform an upgrade at this time radio button.
- Select the Don’t tell me about this again checkbox.
- Click the OK button.
Once done, you will no longer receive a prompt to migrate the Global.mpt file.Login to download
