Now We Know – Visio and Project 2010 Beta


- Advertisement -

Did you know that in addition to the standard Office 2010 beta applications that Microsoft is offering Visio 2010 and Microsoft Project 2010? Thanks to reader Levy for pointing this out!


Visio is a program I use all of the time at work for flow charts, organization charts and network diagrams. It is an easy tool to learn and is a fun program to boot!

Unless you are an off-network scheduler you probably will not use Project often but it might be worth a look for some of you with small businesses.

  1. how is the office beta going. I am thinking about adding it to my main computer. Is this a bad idea, a lot of bugs etc?

    • Hi Todd

      I havent had any problems at all using the beta (which is more than I could say for the technical preview earlier in the year). It takes a little getting used to some of the new features but its great. I am using it as my main office suite!


  2. The beta is going well. No issues so far. They have a Smiley option so if you do not like something, or it does not work right, you can send a screen shot and a emoticon from your menu bar. Interesting.

    I would recommend it.


  3. great,

    While I am asking questions, do you have any problems with anyone hitting your IP with your address? Is it pretty secure?

    • no that I have noticed to be honest, well, nothing over and above the usual "traffic".

      Might be worth you posting something in our forums to see if anyone else is though.


  4. I have not noticed, I do not know how I would notice, I guess there is an event viewer or something in WHS if you RDP into it. I am still new to all this and trying to be careful and aware.

  5. Typically you block port ranges and not IP addresses. MS will forward requests of your WHS server address to the IP your ISP has assigned. As long as you have set up an open port (done during Remote Access set up) then you are good to go.

    As long as you have a strong password on your WHS you should be ok.

  6. Thanks yet again for your time.

    One day I will be an expert and answering questions.

    Thank you
