The program WINPROJ.EXE has encountered a serious problem

Asked By 1000 points N/A Posted on -


When I was at the office I am using Microsoft Project to manage our projects. When I was on the process of updating the file, the error message box appeared with a message that it encountered a serious problem.

When I saw the error message, I don't have any other choice was to click on the close button, after which MS Project closed, I restarted my computer and re booted it again, when I started MS Project there was no error, I am back with my work, but suddenly same error appeared.

Do I need to re-install MS Project or are there any other solution?

Please give some advice.

Your Antivirus may not be updated that it gives your error from updating. Update your Antivirus and scan your computer. This way updating can be properly executed. If not, your Registry Entry is also affected. You have to re-install your Microsoft Project.

  • Uninstall your Microsoft Project.
  • Download a Registry Cleaner.
  • Clean your Registry Entry. This way it ensures that no error or problem during your next installation.
  • Restart your computer.
  • After it restarts, now you can install your Microsoft Project and update it.
  • Be sure that no virus from your computer is found (viruses stop your updating process to be properly executed).
