SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated April 26, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you try to save a project in Microsoft Project 2010, the Start1 to Start10 fields, and the Finish1 to Finish10 fields that are related to a task’s interim baseline may be lost. This issue occurs when the fields are not visible in an active table when you save the project.
  • Project 2010 crashes when you copy a task in a master project that contains a local custom field. This issue specially occurs when the local custom field in the master project has a lookup table defined. However, the local custom field in a subproject does not have a lookup table defined.
  • Project Professional 2010 may crash when you try to save a project in Project Professional 2010.
  • 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.
