SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated February 28, 2012.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you open a project that contains Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code in Project 2010. When you use the Save As command to replace the existing file many times, the save process eventually fails. Additionally, the project is corrupted and cannot be opened. 
  • You create an .mpp file that was saved from a Project server by using the Save for Sharing command. When you try to resave the .mpp file back to the Project server in Project 2010, the save process fails, and you receive the following error message:
    Project Server was unable to find the specified resource. If the problem continues, contact your server administrator.

    This issue occurs when the list separator character that is contained in resource names within the .mpp file on the client differs from the list separator character on the server.
  • When you open a project that contains a milestone task that has actual work but does not have an actual work contour, Project Professional 2010 crashes.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • 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.
    • You assign a material resource to a task.
    • You type a value in the work field or in the actual work field (for example, you type 1 in the work field or in the actual work field) in Task Usage view.

    In this scenario, the value in the work field or in the actual work field is incorrect (in the example, the value is displayed incorrectly as 1.09).
  • Project 2010 crashes when you save a project. This issue may occur when summary resource assignments are loaded.
