SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Project, when you insert a project, create an external predecessor or successor, or create a new window, you may receive one of the following error messages:
You cannot use an Internet address here. Enter a path that points to a location on your computer or on the network.
-or-
There was a problem creating the link.

You cannot create links to projects that are stored on a Web server, and you cannot insert projects from a Web server.
-or-
You cannot create links to projects that are stored on a Web server, and you cannot insert projects from a Web server.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because Microsoft Project does not allow you to insert a project, create an external predecessor/successor or create a new window with a project that is saved on a Web server.

WORKAROUND

If you want to create cross-project dependencies or insert a project, you must save the projects on your computer or on a network server, not on a Web server.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
