SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated October 25, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you change certain values in a project that contains many tasks in Project 2010, Project 2010 takes a long time to recalculate the project.
  • Consider the following scenarios:
    • You change the timephased work in a Project 2010 project.
    • You change the remaining work for a task or assignment in a Project 2010 project.
    • You enter a time value for the timephased work, and the time scale granularity is more than one day.

    In these scenarios, the actual work is rescheduled unexpectedly. Additionally, you do not receive a message that notifies you that the project is out of sync with the Project server.
  • When you try to print an .mpp filedirectly from Windows Explorer, you receive the following error message:

    An unexpected error occurred.
  • Project 2010 stops responding when you try to open a project that contains incorrect, manually scheduled task date values.
  • When you open a Network Diagram view in Project 2010, and you print or print preview a project, the fill color of the task boxes is the same as the border color of the task boxes. Therefore, the text inside the task boxes appears fuzzy or unreadable. This issue specifically occurs when you use a black-and-white printer to print preview a project or to print a project.
  • When the custom duration fields are defined in an Office Project 2007 project, you may be unable to open the project file in Project 2010.
  • When you try to update deliverables or dependencies in a project that contains more than 159 deliverables, the update process may fail.
