Latest updates for versions of Office that use Windows Installer (MSI)

This article describes update KB2965279 for Microsoft Project 2013 that was released on April 14, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Please be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It does not apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?).

Improvements and Fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • When you open a project document from a SharePoint Server 2013 document library, the document is opened in read-only mode, and you cannot change the option to edit the document.

  • Some fields such as the % Comp. and the Date fields are not displayed in the Links Between Projects dialog box in Project 2013.

  • When you use the week-by-week basis to level resources for a project in Project 2013, Project 2013 may stop responding.

  • When you make some changes to a project in a form view such as the Task Form view in Project 2013, the unsaved changes may be lost. This issue occurs if Project 2013 is integrated with Microsoft Lync and your status is changed in Lync.

    Note To disable the Lync integration, follow the steps in the "Registry Information" section after you apply the update.

  • When you merge the data of an .xml file into a project in Project 2013, levelling delays of all tasks are reset unexpectedly. Additionally, the total task work may be increased in some cases.

  • You cannot complete a task that has milestone assignments (assignments that contain zero work) and in which the Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets option is enabled in the Task Settings and Display dialog box in Project Web App.

  • When you use Project 2013 to publish a project and the Do not create a site option is enabled, Project 2013 continuously requests data from the server about the nonexistent site.
