Cumulative update for Project Server 2010 (Project server-package): April 14, 2014 - Microsoft Support [MS]


Cumulative update packages for Microsoft Project Server 2010 contain hotfixes for the Project Server 2010 issues that were fixed since the release of Project Server 2010.

Note This is build 14.0.7121.5004 of the cumulative update package.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and security updates that were included with the previous Project Server 2010 update package releases.

Important notes about the cumulative update package

  • The Microsoft Office 2010 hotfixes are now multilingual. This cumulative update package contains updates for all languages.

  • This cumulative update package includes all the server component packages. Additionally, this cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on the system.


Issues that this cumulative update fixes

  • Assume that you have a timesheet. After its creation, one or more custom fields that were available when the timesheet was created are now deleted (from the Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables page). When you open the Timesheet view, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

    The view failed to load. Press OK to reload this view with the default settings. Press Cancel to select another view.

  • When resources in a project have many assignments in other projects in Project Server 2010, it takes longer than expected to publish the project.

    Note The time that is required to publish the project may increase if many projects that use the same resource are published at the same time as can occur if you enable the Automatically publish the updates option.

  • The Assignment Baseline Finish field and the Task Baseline Finish field are missing from the Published Field list when you create an approval rule in the Approval Center.

  • Because of SQL Server deadlock errors, data is not always transferred to the Reporting database when you save a timesheet.

  • From a project detail page in Project Web App, you save a project that contains cost resource assignments. In this situation, the costs on the assignments may change unexpectedly. For example, a cost of $1.16 changes to $1.00.

  • The decimal value in the Standard Rate field does not always round correctly after you edit any resources in Project Web App (PWA).
    For example, assume that you enter a resource's standard rate as $733/d. On an hourly basis this is equal to $91.625, and it is stored in the Project Server database as $91.625, even though it appears in the interface in Project Professional and PWA as $91.63. However, if you edit the resource in PWA, the value that is stored internally changes to $91.63. Therefore, costs that depend on rate may change because of the rounding problem.

  • Assume that you create a project by using a project template in which, for example, the Hours per day option is set to "9 hours." In this situation, the project may be scheduled incorrectly in Project Web App. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

    An error occurred scheduling the project. Try to schedule the project again in a moment.
