There are 2 tasks which I am trying to show in the critical path:

"Customer waiting to get approval for VA" and "Virtual Appliance Download..."

I set the target dates, have the predecessors. What else do I need? I can see the critical path for the prior tasks. Please see the attached grid and gantt pics.

    Hi Kathy, if pushing the end dates for those tasks didn't change the final project end date, they aren't critical path tasks. Critical tasks are those that cannot budge without impacting the project end date.
