"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's almost unbelieveable that Microsoft still haven't fixed this bug.

Find the excel.exe file from Office 2016 and copy it into the the equivalent folder for Office 2013 created by the Project installation.

Project should then run without a problem.
