INTRODUCTION

Issue that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you click Submit All to submit more than 100 updated tasks, you receive the following error message on the My Task page:
    Your updates were not saved because of the following reasons:
    General error: An invalid value was passed to Project Server (Use this error information along with other errors to find out the cause of the problem.)
  • You install the update that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 968271. When you create a site in Project Server 2007 that has the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) installed, a second timer job is created in the native language and the site provisioning fails.
  • The Total field at the bottom of Timesheet view is incorrect because overtime work values are doubled.
  • In the Project Server 2007 reporting database, the MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentActualWork table shows 0 for inactive resources.
  • In Project Web Access (PWA), when you create a timesheet period that is 1 day , the background color of the Day field in the timesheet is dark gray. Dark gray specifies a nonworking period.
  • After you set the PWA site regional setting to a language such as English (New Zealand), the value in an enterprise project date, cost, or number custom field does not pass the validation. Therefore, when you save a proposal or an activity project that has such a custom field, you receive the following error message:
    Invalid value specified for a custom field. Please correct the values and try saving again.

    Additionally, after you set the PWA site regional setting to English (Australia), the value in an enterprise project date custom field does not pass the validation. Therefore, when you save a proposal or an activity project that has such a custom field, you receive the following error message:
    The value for the custom field is not a valid date, or it is outside the range for dates, which is January 1, 1984 through December 31, 2049.
  • The time-phased actual work is incorrect after you submit the actual working hours during nonworking time in PWA for an assignment that starts on a nonworking day.
  • Publishing causes locking failures on the MSP_ASSIGNMENT_TRANSACTIONS table when publishing is 30 percent completed.
  • Active Directory sync fails in Project Server 2007. This causes all users to be locked out of Enterprise Project Management (EPM). Additionally, users receive the following error message:
    Catastrophic failure
  • When you assign cost resources and work resources or assign material resources and work resources to the same task in Project 2007, the reporting publishing job takes a long time.
  • Consider the following scenario. You install 2007 Microsoft Office servers Service Pack 2 on a computer that has Project Server 2007 installed. After you create and then save a timesheet, you create a new project that contains a task. The working period of the task is part of the timesheet's period. Then you publish the project. In this scenario, when you click Next or Previous to move to the timesheet, you receive the following error message:
    An unexpected error has occurred. Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.
  • When you visit drill-down pages such as the Assignment Details page in PWA, Narrator cannot handle or correctly report many of the features on these pages.

    Note Before you apply the hotfix that is described in this article, delete temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer.
  • 974471 Error message when you save or submit more than 100 updated tasks in Project Server 2007: "General error: An invalid value was passed to Project Server"
