After the hotfix is installed, you must run four separate SQL queries to finish the patch. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server, and then click Query Analyzer.
  2. Connect to the Project SQL Server.
  3. Select the Project Server database from the drop-down list.
  4. Type or paste the following SQL query code in the right pane of the Query Analyzer:
    insert into MSP_WEB_CONVERSIONS (STRING_TYPE_ID, CONV_VALUE, LANG_ID, CONV_STRING) values (9, 90150, 1033, N'User Defined 1')
    insert into MSP_WEB_CONVERSIONS (STRING_TYPE_ID, CONV_VALUE, LANG_ID, CONV_STRING) values (9, 90151, 1033, N'User Defined 2')
    insert into MSP_WEB_CONVERSIONS (STRING_TYPE_ID, CONV_VALUE, LANG_ID, CONV_STRING) values (9, 90152, 1033, N'User Defined 3')
  5. On the Query menu, click Execute to run the query.
  6. After the query runs, type or paste the following SQL query code in the right pane of the Query Analyzer:
    set IDENTITY_INSERT MSP_WEB_SECURITY_FEATURES_ACTIONS ON insert into MSP_WEB_SECURITY_FEATURES_ACTIONS (WSEC_FEA_ACT_ID, WSEC_FEA_ACT_PARENT, WSEC_IS_ACTION, 
    WSEC_ON_OBJECT, WSEC_FEA_ACT_NAME_ID) values( 150,  100, 1, 0, 90150)
    insert into MSP_WEB_SECURITY_FEATURES_ACTIONS (WSEC_FEA_ACT_ID, WSEC_FEA_ACT_PARENT, WSEC_IS_ACTION, WSEC_ON_OBJECT, WSEC_FEA_ACT_NAME_ID) values( 151,  100, 1, 0, 90151)
    insert into MSP_WEB_SECURITY_FEATURES_ACTIONS (WSEC_FEA_ACT_ID, WSEC_FEA_ACT_PARENT, WSEC_IS_ACTION, WSEC_ON_OBJECT, WSEC_FEA_ACT_NAME_ID) values( 152,  100, 1, 0, 90152)
    set IDENTITY_INSERT MSP_WEB_SECURITY_FEATURES_ACTIONS OFF
  7. On the Query menu, click Execute to run the query.
  8. After the query runs, type or paste the following SQL query code in the right pane of the Query Analyzer:
