Microsoft Project Server team today posted about the support status for Project Server 2007 and Project Server 2010, as well as Project Portfolio Server 2007 for Windows Internet Explorer 9 RTM. In brief -- yes it's supported on the latest service packs of each product.

If you're running IE9 and run into problems then please review the rest part of this post to see if you've hit a known issue (currently some cell editing problems and update of Project Owner and other fields in Project Detail Pages - PDP's).

After testing the different versions of Microsoft Project Server with IE 9, here's an update on IE 9 support status:

  • Project Server 2010 was tested and supports IE 9.
  • The main scenarios and functionalities of Project Server 2007 SP2 were tested and support IE 9. Project Server 2007 SP1 and Project Server 2007 may also support IE 9.
  • The main scenarios and functionalities of Project Portfolio Server 2007 SP2 were tested and support IE 9. Project Portfolio Server 2007 SP1 and Project Portfolio Server 2007 may also support IE 9.

"There's a small known issue with editing some of the grids in Project Server 2007 and Project Server 2010. When the entire contents of an editable cell are deleted, that cell becomes un-editable until the page is refreshed. Therefore, when modifying the content of a cell, you must ensure that all the content of the cell isn't completely removed. To completely replace the contents of the cell, select the whole text and replace that with the new string," explains Christophe Fiessinger.

There're also known issues with changing a project owner in the project information page, and adding or removing project fields in project detail pages. We're working across IE and Microsoft Project teams to fix all these issues soon. We'll update when the fixes are available," added Fiessinger.

This issue affects the grid on the following pages:
