SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated August 30, 2011.  

INTRODUCTION

Issue that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you restore projects from backups in Project 2010, the deliverables and dependencies are restored incorrectly.
  • Assume that you have a milestone that has a task link in its own project and a cross-project link from a different project. In this case, the cross-project link incorrectly schedules if the date format does not display the time.
  • When you create a visual report in a master project, Project 2010 crashes.
  • Assume that you clear the local cache after you change the task data. In this case, the custom flag field values are lost.
  • Assume that you click a resource after the Links Between Projects dialog box appears. In this case, Project 2010 crashes when you switch to the Resource Sheet view on a customer file.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a deliverable that has a finish date for a task in Project 2010.
    • You create another task.
    • You add a dependency for the two tasks. In this scenario, the dependency finish date that is shown in the Gantt chart differs from the finish date that is shown in the Dependency pane.

  • When you click the Reschedule uncompleted work to start after button, remaining work is not rescheduled if only a material resource is assigned to a task in Project 2010.
  • Project 2010 crashes when projects in a master project calculate contour information.
  • Task names and other demand-loaded properties are lost after you perform undo actions in Project 2010.
