Microsoft Project 1.0 for DOS

Microsoft Project is a project management chart and gantt chart generator. It is a Microsoft Office family member, and built on the Office code, although it has never shipped with any Office suite.


Release notes

Released in 1984 for DOS, Microsoft Project 1.00 was a professional project management tool that approached projects using the "Critical Path Method" (rather than PERT). It was primarily geared towards resource, scheduling and costing aspects, and targeted business users that had not used project management software before.

Notable features of Microsoft Project 1.0 included its ability to use the Microsoft Mouse, and built in help.

This version competed with VisiSchedule, Harvard Project Manager, and PertMaster.

Project 1.00 for DOS was written by MAS and published by Microsoft. Microsoft acquired all rights for 2.00 and later.

This application runs under PC/MS-DOS 1.1x or later, with 128K RAM, a double sided 5.25" floppy drive, and a graphics adapter.

Note: This disk is formatted for DOS 1.x and will not open with tools like Winimage.

Note: This disk is also mis-formatted with 9-sectors, even though it is a 320k 8-sector image. This confuses most disk copiers, as well as Windows 9x.

Important: This version is copy protected, and no unprotect is known to exist. To create a working disk, you must write a disk using the provided Kryoflux image. It may be converted to other formats, such as SuperCard Pro, using the HxC disk tool. It has also been tested to run in the PCE emulator.

It will run either from the A or B drive, but apparently can not be installed to a hard drive. Extracted files are provided for reference, but will not create a usable program disk.

Wanted: Manual scans.
