    Hi
    first of all the framework:
    Host:
    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro16,1
    Processor Name: 8-Core Intel Core i9
    Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 8
    L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
    L3 Cache: 16 MB
    Hyper-Threading Technology: Enabled
    Memory: 64 GB
    Boot ROM Version: 1037.147.4.0.0 (iBridge: 17.16.16610.0.0,0)

    Guest:
    2 processors w/ adaptive hypervisor (Parallels),
    2Gb RAM,
    1Gb graphic memory, DirectX10 for 3D-acceleration and vertical sync on,
    disk capacity 256Gb, Windows 10Pro 64bit 10.0 (19041.450)

    Parallels edition:

    Desktop 16 for Mac v. 16.0.1 (48919)
    VM resolution is set to "Scaled"
    Microsoft Office: MSProject 2016 + Office 365

    1. First strange thing, when I show "About Microsoft Project" it shows : Parallel Desktop for Mac Home Edition 15.1.2(47123)
    2. Excel, Word and powerPoint are running normally. Ms project is a nightmare. Let say I want to delete a baseline in a 1000 lines plan, it takes minimum 10 minutes to do it. This kind of action should be instant.
    Any word of advice? Thanks.

    Hello, did you try to reinstall MS project and check the issue?
    Please take a snapshot before making any changes

    Hi,

    I do experience exactly the same issue. Reinstallation did not change anything. I even have a strange issue, when I try to change the level of an activity (let say from 10.1 to 10.1.1) it runs then stop and nothing has changed. When I do it it my job computer, windows one, it works perfectly.

    Any advice ?

    Alain

    Did you update your Parallels Desktop build to the latest one 16.1.1?
