Not all files in the Pjclient.cab file are updated after you apply update 940133

After you apply update 940133, the Pjclient.cab file is updated. However, only the Pjgrid12.ocx file in the Pjclient.cab file is updated. Additionally, the ASP pages that are required to push controls and to update controls on the Project Web Access client are not updated.

If you try to open a project in Project 2007 when tasks are being updated in Project Web Access, Project 2007 may stop responding.


Projects may not calculate correctly if resources are assigned to summary tasks

The server code that schedules projects does not correctly check for assignments on summary tasks. Therefore, errors are displayed in the server logs.


Projects that have default start times and end times other than 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. have calculation errors when you set a new task end date

If a project calendar has default start times and end times other than 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., certain calculations are incorrect. For example, you have a task that starts on September 26 and that ends September 27. Additionally, you work seven hours a day. Therefore, the total work is 14 hours. However, if you enter the new end date as September 28, the total work is recalculated as 24 hours. This behavior occurs because Project 2007 assumes that you work eight hours a day.


Error message when you reassign tasks to other team members: "Access denied"
