INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • You may experience issues in Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 if one of the following conditions are true:
    • You add an inactive resource to a category by using a resource filter in Project Web Access (PWA). Then you try to save the category.
    • You add an active resource to a category. Then, you change the status to inactive. And then, you try to save the category.
    Additionally, you receive the following error message:

    The category could not be saved due to the following reasons: An unknown error has occurred.
  • Consider the following scenario. You log on to PWA by using an administrator account in Office Project Server 2007. Then, you change the locale to Danish or to Norwegian by using the site regional settings in PWA. You try to edit a user setting from the Edit Users PWA page. In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

    Unknown Error

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You perform an update from Office Project Server 2003 to Office Project Server 2007 by using the Project Migration Tool.
    • You open an existing project plan or you create a new project plan in Office Project 2007.
    • You insert several local custom fields in the plan.

    In this scenario, the values for these local custom fields are displayed incorrectly. Additionally, you cannot save, publish or check in the project plan.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a project plan that contains several tasks in Office Project 2007.
    • You assign a resource to the tasks and then publish the project plan to Office Project Server 2007.
    • You create a workspace for the project plan when you publish the project plan in the previous step.
    • You remove the resource from all tasks in the project plan and then publish the plan again.

    In this scenario, the resource’s access permission to the SharePoint workspace is still set as a team member, which allows the resource to be a contributor to the SharePoint workspace. However, the permission should change to the readers permission, which only allows the resource to read from the SharePoint workspace.
  • When a status manager accepts updates for tasks in Office Project Server 2007, the status of the update job shows as processing on the Manage Queue page and never finishes.
  • When you have lots of tasks in the My Tasks page in Office Project Server 2007, and you do not set the Expand All view option check box, the My Tasks page loads very slowly. Specifically, this issue appears when you use Internet Explorer version 7.0.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create or you edit an existing enterprise calendar in PWA.
    • You add twoexceptions on or after the 28th of the same month.
    • You set the recurrence pattern to Yearly or to Monthly for both exceptions.
    • You try to save the enterprise calendar.

    In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

    The operation could not be performed as it requires Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007. Make sure that Project is installed on this machine and that a profile to this server exists. If Project is currently running, ensure that it is logged on to this server and that there is no dialog open.

    Note To resolve this issue, you must apply the hotfix packages that are described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2449500 and in this KB article.
