SQL stored procedure update is required to install Project Server updates

To make sure that your Project Server has all the fixes that are contained in this update applied correctly, follow these steps:
  1. Run the self-extracting package, this will extract the files to a temporary folder that you select.
  2. For each SQL query file (such as Websps.sql) that is extracted to the temporary folder that you indicated in step 1, do one of the following:
    • If you are using Microsoft SQL Server as the backend for your Project Server, follow these steps:
      1. On your main SQL server in your configuration, run SQL Query Analyzer.
      2. In the Database drop-down box, select the ProjectServer database.
      3. On the File menu, click Open, locate the SQL Query file (located in the temporary folder that is specified in step 1), and then open the file.
      4. On the Query menu, click Execute.
      5. When the query is finished running, you may close Query Analyzer.
    • If you are using SQL Server Desktop Engine (also known as MSDE 2000) as the backend for your Project Server, follow these steps:
      1. On your main SQL server in your configuration, click Start, click Run, type osql -i tempdir\queryfile.sql -U sa in the Open box, and then click OK.

        For example, if you extracted the files in step 1 to C:\Temp and the name of the query file was Websps.sql, you would type osql -i c:\temp\websps.sql -U sa. This connects you to the local, default instance of MSDE 2000 by using the SA account. You may also run osql with another username that has SA permissions on the server.
      2. At the Password prompt, type the password for the account that you used in step a, and then press ENTER.
      3. This SQL query file that you specified in step a will now run.
