More info

To understand Microsoft Project 2016 Professional, it is important to know where it fits in with the Project 2016 family.

This particular family is an on-premises, perpetual license family.

A perpetual license is where you pay once for the license and you can use the software for as long as you wish. It is sometimes called a lifetime license. In other words, the license is not a subscription license, where you have to pay monthly or annually to continue to use the software.

The three family members are Project Standard, Project Professional and Project Server. Project Standard is a standalone program. Project Professional works with Project Server to provide more advanced functions and collaborative features.

The Project 2016 Professional that we sell is the Extended Edition. This allows the user of the software to have the software installed on two computers as long as at least one of those computers is a laptop and as long as he or she is the primary user of both computers. For example, he or she could have it installed on a desktop at work and on a laptop for visiting clients.

Eleven important reasons why this Microsoft Project Professional Extended Edition is such a good deal

1. It is very good value for money First and foremost, this Project 2016 is probably cheaper than any Project 2016 legally sold in the UK.

2. Works with Microsoft Office It is a Microsoft Office Project which means it will work with other Microsoft Office programs such as the Microsoft Excel. This is useful if you want to work things out in Excel first and then export your work into Project, for example.

3. Windows 10 Project 2016 runs on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7. But it does not run on Windows Vista and Windows XP. For Windows Vista and Windows XP, get Microsoft Project 2010.

4. Choice of 32-bit or 64-bit Microsoft Project 2016 is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. You don't have to choose when you buy. You choose when you download from the secure Microsoft website.

What is more, if you, say, download the 32-bit version and decide later to try the 64-bit version, you can go back and download that one and install it. And if, later still, you yearn for the 32-bit version, simply return to the secure Microsoft website and download it.

5. You can transfer it to your new computer Very few Microsoft Project 2016 editions allow you to transfer them to new computers. But this one does. With this Project 2016, you can remove it from your old machine and install it on your new one.

6. Install on two computers You can install this Project 2016 Professional on two computers, as long as they are used primarily by one user and at least one of the computers is a laptop. (With other Project 2016 Professional on sale, you can only install them on one machine.)

7. Perpetual License You pay once for the software and you can use it forever.

8. Microsoft confirmation This means that the legality of the software can never be disputed, making it ideal for software audits.

9. Available as a download and on disc Although the software comes as a download we can if you wish, download it for you, burn it onto a disc and mail it out to you. We won't charge for this, by the way.

10. Gives you peace of mind Do you sometimes lose things? Well, with this Project 2016, Microsoft keep your product key (which you need to activate the software) secure for you so that if you ever lose it, you can get it back again from their secure website. Of if you lose the software, you can always download it again from the Microsoft secure website.

11. Free upgrade Includes free upgrade to Microsoft Project 2019 Professional.
