PROJECT in a box Planner is a single user, Windows desktop .NET program for creating, editing and sharing project planning information in the form of tasks lists and Gantt charts.
A Windows PC with the .NET framework v4.5.1 or newer installed.
Planner uses the file extension '.spn' e.g. 'My Plan.spn'. The installer puts some example plans in your Windows 'Documents\PIAB Planner' folder. Plan files are in XML format.
By default, the planner-setup.exe uses the following locations (note see below for 'Portable' mode)
|Program Files\PROJECT in a box Planner||Application files|
|Users\<current user>\AppData\Local\piabplanner||This is your Windows Profile location, containing the application config file 'piabplanner.cfg'|
|Documents\PIAB Planner||Example plan files|
By default, the program is installed in your 'Program Files' folder as above, configuration files are stored in your Windows Profile, and example projects are placed in your 'Documents\PIAB Planner' folder. Alternatively, you can install the program on a USB key or other removable device.
To use in 'Portable Mode':
