Project 2010 Cumulative Updates


  • This page lists all of the released Cumulative Updates (CU) and Service Packs (SP) for Microsoft Project  2010, both Standard and Professional. 

From February 2015 onwards all fixes are shipped in Public Updates. From March 2015 client updates available via Windows Update and Download Center, server updates only via Download Center.

They are listed in reverse date order – newest at the top.  Each of these packages is cumulative, including all the previous fixes back to the last baseline (either the initial release or a Service Pack).   I have also recorded the version you will see in the File, Help, About Microsoft Project – then the Additional Version and Copyright Information (the version shown just above this link is the Office shared components version)

December 2016

No client update for Project 2010 in December 2016.

November 2016

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A team member submits a status update.
    • A status manager approves the update.
    • A project manager opens the project and verifies that the status update has been applied correctly to the project.
    • The project manager then saves the project.

    In this situation, depending on the state of the project manager’s local active cache, the updated version of the project may be overwritten by an older version of the project in the project manager’s active cache. Therefore, the status updates that have been applied are lost.

  • This update also fixes the following issues:
    • After you remove all progress from a task, a leading split is added incorrectly to the task.
    • When a task is observed from the Gantt view, you may see an unexplained split, for example, at the end, and when you try to remove the split, it grows larger, and the task finish is now later than before.

14.0.7166.5000

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a 1d task that has an assigned resource and the assignment has 8h of work on a single day.
  • You set the assignment contour to front-loaded. At this point, you now have two daily work segments of 6.67h and 1.33h.
  • You save the project as an XML file and reopen it.

In this situation, the work contour is lost and the opened assignment has a single work segment of 8h. In a related scenario, if you open an XML file, Project 2010 may crash and become unresponsive. This issue occurs after you install December 8, 2015, update for Project 2010 (KB3114419).

14.0.7162.5000

  • When you view the physical “% complete” field on an inserted project summary task in a master project, the value doesn’t always reflect the same value on the project summary task in the sub project. In addition, if you open the master project and the sub project isn’t in memory, the physical “% value” is displayed as “0%.”

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Office file. To learn more about these vulnerabilities, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-116.

14.0.7154.5000

  • Consider the following:When you open a project in Project Professional, you may find that local custom fields are copied from the enterprise global template into your project. The enterprise global should not have local custom fields in it, and these fields should not be copied to individual projects. This fix prevents these fields from getting into the Global template and then getting incorrectly copied into your project and overwriting local custom fields that you may have already defined.
    • You use Project 2010 to open a project file (.mpp) from a SharePoint document library.
    • You save the file to a nondefault file format such as .txt, csv, or xlsx.
    • You keep the MPP file open.
    • You make some changes to the project, and then save it.
    • You save the project.In this scenario, the changes that you made to the MPP file are not saved properly
  • When you open an XML project file in Project 2010, a milestone task that is marked as completed may incorrectly be set to 99%.

14.0.7153.5000

  • If a subproject in a master project has a baseline date that is earlier than its start date while the master project does not have a baseline set for the task that represents the subproject, you may be unable to create a visual report for the master project in Project 2010. Instead, you receive the following error message:
    An unknown error has occurred.
    An error occurred and the requested action could not be completed at this time.
  • When you try to create a visual report on a master project that contains a project summary task, you receive the following error message if the project summary task does not have a matching baseline:
    An error occurred and the requested action could not be completed at this time.
  • When you assign a resource to a task in the Task Information dialog box in Project 2010, the resource assignment unit may be incorrect if Resource Availability for that resource is changed.

14.0.7151.5000

  • After you open an .xml file in a new project in Project 2010, the work and the actual work of some assignments are incorrect.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • As a team member in Project Web App, you set an actual start date on a task that is assigned to you.
    • You submit the update.
    • Your status manager approves and applies the update to the project.
    • You open the project in Project Professional.
       

    In this situation, the actual start date on the assignment is not found.

14.0.7149.5000

  • When you roll up baseline values from selected tasks into all summary tasks, the time-phased baseline work and cost values may be incorrect. For example, suppose that over a series of days, the time-phased baseline work values on the summary task are 4h, 2h, 8h, 0h, and 2.5h. After you save the baseline, the values may change to something like 4h, 4.13h, 4.13h, 4.13h, and 4.13h.

14.0.7147.5000

  • When you merge the data of an .xml file into a project in Project 2010, levelling delays of all tasks are reset unexpectedly. Additionally, the total task work may be increased in some cases.
  • When you group on a field for some tasks in Project 2010, the Duration field value on the group summary row is incorrect. The duration should reflect the working time between the earliest and the latest dates on the tasks that are grouped. Instead, it is the task in the grouping that has the maximum duration.
  • When you change the Status Manager value for a task and publish the project in Project 2010, the changed value is not updated as expected within the reporting database.

14.0.7140.5000

  • It takes longer time to use Project 2010 to open an .mpp file from a remote file server.
  • Assume that your project has a baseline set. When you set a baseline on specific tasks in Project 2010, and roll the baseline data up to the summary tasks, the rollup on the summary tasks may be incorrect.
  • Assume that you open a project that shares resources from a common resource pool, and when you are prompted, you click to open the resource pool. When you change the assignments in the sharing project, the changes are not reflected in the resource pool project.

14.0.7136.5000

  • Assume that you apply a custom date-based interactive filter to a view in a project in Project 2010,and then you switch to a different view. When you revert to the original view, the Date/Time Picker control that is associated with the interactive filter may not work.
  • Assume that you configure Project 2010 to load the complete subproject when you expand a subproject by using the CloseSubProjHandleAfterOpen registry key. Then, you save and close a master project after you do a recalculation. When you open the subproject again, the tasks in the subprojectmay be damaged. For example, tasks may be in the wrong location in the project, tasks that previously were non-summary tasks may now be summary tasks, or you may see a message that resembles the following:
No calculations can be performed now. There is a circular relationship in task <task name> of <project name>. The successors of this task refer back to this task or its predecessors, causing a circular reference.
14.0.7134.5000
  • When you set a baseline for a project in Project 2010, if a cost resource is assigned to a milestone task, the values of the timephased remaining cost for that cost resource are assigned to the timephased baseline cost incorrectly.
  • When you create a visual report that is based on task usage data in Project 2010, and the level of usage data is set to weeks, you may receive the following error message:
    Unknown error has occurred. An error occurred and the requested action could not be completed at this time.

    In addition, if you try to save the cube data, the previous error is also generated. If you click OK, you receive the following error message:

    This is not a valid file name. File names must be less than 255 characters and they cannot contain any of the following characters: \ ” / ; ? < > |

14.0.7130.5000

  • Assume that you open and edit a project from Project Server in Project Professional 2010, and the Protected Actuals feature is enabled. When you sync the actual work, the timephased actual work may change. The Sync to Protected Actuals function may also run automatically when you save a project after you see the “Your action may result in actuals in this project becoming out of sync with the actuals updated from timesheets” message.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a project file that contains more than two enterprise resources.
    • You open the project file in Project Professional 2010.
    • You change the list separator so that the client’s and the server’s characters are different.

    In this scenario, you cannot save or import this project to a Project Server.

    Canceling correlation 088954b8-eec2-4e6a-9b23-1fb1654e411f as save is an overwrite or resubmit.
  • When you open a project in Project 2010 from a Project Server, you may receive a message that resembles the following:
    Your action may result in actuals in this project becoming out of synch with the actuals updated from timesheets.
    You can: sync actuals with the Synch actuals command on the Tracking menu, or synch actuals when you save the project.
  • After you install the December 2013 or February 2014 cumulative update, every time that you open a project in Project 2010, all built-in filters and filters in the global template are copied to and duplicated in the project.If you connect to a Project Server, then every time that you save the enterprise global template, these filters will be copied to it. Additionally, you may receive a message that resembles the following:
    The enterprise global already contains a filter named “Critical”.
    Do you want to replace the filter with the one from the enterprise global, replace all items with duplicate names, rename the filter in the project, or cancel opening the project?

  • Assume that you have a project that has a budget resource assigned to the project summary task. When you view the project in Project Center within Project Web App, the Gantt bar does not correctly display the progress status of the project.
  • Views, tables, filters and groups added to the Enterprise Global do not properly save the Show in Menu option and therefore the property is always enabled.
  • When Project is running in the background, the Auto Save feature causes the processor to be fully allocated.
  • When you open a read-only project from Project Server 2010 in Project Professional 2010, removing a deliverable from a task deletes and saves it from the deliverables SharePoint list, which is unexpected.
  • When you try to print a project that contains grouping in Project 2010, Project may crash.
  • Assume that you have an MPP file that is created by using the Project server Save for Sharing feature and you are now saving it back to the server. In this case, the status manager property on each task and the project owner may change unexpectedly to be the person who is saving the Save for Sharing MPP file to the server.

  • Assume that a lookup table contains many entries. When you run the CustomFieldValueListAdd Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) method to add the entries to a project in Project 2010, it takes longer than expected.
  • Assume that you use the Gantt Chart view to view some pages in Project 2010. When you print the pages, the “Fit to” settings in the Page Setup dialog box are not applied correctly. For example, Gantt bars and text are not printed.
  • Assume that you create a task that contains three or more assignments in Project 2010. Then, you sequentially enter some actual work for the assignments in the Task Usage view. In this situation, the actual work for other assignments that the task contains may be displayed for the wrong day.
  • After you group some assignments in the Task Usage view or Resource Usage view in Project 2010, some tasks or resources may be displayed in the wrong group.
  • When you assign a budget cost resource to the Project Summary task in Project 2010, the “% Work Complete” value for the Project Summary task is calculated incorrectly.

14.0.7102.5000

  • Project 2010 may crash when you open a project that contains a macro.
  • You run a macro that sets the duration of a custom duration field for a task in a project in Project 2010. When you save and then reopen the project, you receive the following error message:
    Invalid Duration
    This is not a valid duration, or is outside the range for this field.
    Type a duration in the correct format: for example, 4 hours (or 4h), 12 days (or 12d), or 2ed for elapsed days.
  • When you use VBA Userforms and controls in Project 2010, you experience one of the following issues:
    • You receive the following error message:
      System error &H80070057 (-2147024809). The parameter is incorrect.
    • Project 2010 crashes.
  • You copy a group of tasks that have predecessor and successor relationships. When you paste the groups of tasks into a different part of the project, the relationships to the tasks outside the copied relationships are not preserved. For example, consider the following scenario:
    • You have three tasks in which the second task is linked to the first task in a finish to start (FS) relationship.
    • The third task is linked to the second in a FS relationship.
    • You paste the second task and third task into a different part of the project.

    In this scenario, the relationship between the original first task and the new instance of the second task is lost. However, the relationship between the new instance of the second task and the third task is maintained.

  • You create a drawing object in a Gantt chart view for a project in Project 2010. When you undo a formatting change, the created draw object is deleted and cannot be recovered.
  • The CustomFieldValueListAdd method for Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) cannot write a value that is longer than 127 characters in Project 2010.
  • When you export a project as an Excel workbook in Project 2010, dates that appear as NA in Project 2010 appear as 1/0/1900 or 12:00 AM in the workbook. Then, when you import the workbook into Project 2010, the task progress information is incorrect, and constraints are ignored.

14.0.6129.5000

  • Assume that you open an existing project plan in Project Professional 2010 from Project Server 2010. When you select any kind of Resource Usage report in Visual Reports, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
    An unknown error has occurred.
    An error occurred and the requested action could not be completed at this time.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You save a project that shares resources from a resource pool project in Project 2010.
    • You are prompted to also save changes to the resource pool project.
    • You save changes.

    In this scenario, Project 2010 may crash.

  • Assume that you have a task that has more than one resource assigned and at least one of the assigned resources has no Actual Work associated with it. Then you use the Update Projectoption to reschedule work for a time before the task’s start date. In this scenario, all existing Actual Work for the assignments on the task is deleted.
  • Assume that you enable the legacy formats in Project 2010. When you import text data to the project, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

    An import error occurred.

    Check row n column n

    The number you entered is invalid or is outside the range for a Number field. Make sure you are typing only numbers and no letters or other characters in this field, or type a smaller number.

  • Assume that you start Project Professional and it is connected to a server. In this situation, when you select to load summary resource assignment (SRA) information, you may see unexpected work overallocations problems.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You open a project from Project Server that contains enterprise lookup fields and values and then use the Save for Sharing feature.
    • When you are disconnected from the server profile, you change the file in certain ways (for example, you edit the title, start, finish or duration).
    • You reconnect to the project server and then save the file to the server.
    • You open the plan.

    In this scenario, the values in the enterprise lookup field are lost.

  • When you set the list separator in Regional Settings to a character other than a comma (,), the following issues occur:
    • You cannot use Form view to create task dependencies.
    • You cannot assign resources to a task. For example, you cannot assign resources to a task by using the Assign Resources dialog box.
  • A resource in a summary field that shows summary resource assignments is displayed as overallocated unexpectedly.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You schedule a project from the project finish date.
    • You create a task in the project and assign two resources to the task.
    • You start one of the assignments.
    • You click the Reschedule uncompleted work to start after: button to update the project.

    In this scenario, the scheduled work for an assignment that is not started is reduced.

  • Assume that you enable the Keep local with base calendar optionon resources when you use the import wizard to import a project from Project Professional 2010 to a Project server. When the import wizard finishes and you view the Resource Center through Project Web App, resources that are supposed to be local to the imported project are displayed unexpectedlyas enterprise resources.
  • When an assignment has a protected actual work field that contains a zero value in Project Professional 2010, the assignment cannot be completed.
  • When you enter timephased actual work for a period of time on an assignment in a manually scheduled task, the actual work value is divided and displayed in two periods of time.

  • Assume that you perform earned value calculations in a task that has cost resource assignments. When you manually change costs in the task, the estimate at completion (EAC) values are calculated incorrectly.
  • Assume that you open a project in Project Server 2010. When you save the project in a different file format, the project on the server contains orphan baseline records.
  • Assume that you create some enterprise custom fields that contain rollups in a project. When you change the project in Project 2010, the values that should be rolled up are not immediately visible. Additionally, the values that should be rolled up are not saved.
  • Assume that you create an enterprise custom field that is based on a hierarchical lookup table. When you group the items in the field, the items are not grouped hierarchically.
  • If a task has a duration of less than a month, and if you enter the actual cost for the month in the time-phased view, the actual cost is divided between the days in the month.

    • You have a subtask whose progress is set to incomplete.
    • The summary task of the sub task has a predecessor task.
    • You schedule the predecessor task to finish at a later date.

    In this scenario, the remaining duration of the sub task is not split, and the remaining duration of the sub task is not pushed to begin after the predecessor task finishes.

  • When you open and edit a project that contains some cost resource assignments that have actual cost values in Project 2010, some resource assignments are not marked as completed. And if you set the assignments to complete and then save the project, the next time that you open the project, the assignments are incomplete. Additionally, the finish dates of the assignments are extended.
  • After you open and work on a project in Project 2010 for a while, the user interface does not draw correctly, and you may be unable to save the project.
  • Assume that a task that has resource assignments and actual work values is changed into a summary task in a Project 2010 project. In this situation, the actual work values in the summary task may differ from the actual work values that were in the original task. Or, the actual work values may be lost.
  • Consider the following scenario in Project 2010:
    • You change the Hours per day setting to a real number value (for example, you change the setting to 7.6). You also change the Work is entered in setting to Days on the Schedule tab under Options.
