This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated April 8, 2014.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you save a sub project in a master project, the save process may fail. Additionally, you may find an error message that resembles the following in the Universal Logging Service (ULS) logs:

    Canceling correlation 088954b8-eec2-4e6a-9b23-1fb1654e411f as save is an overwrite or resubmit.

  • When you open a project in Project 2010 from a Project Server, you may receive a message that resembles the following:

    Your action may result in actuals in this project becoming out of synch with the actuals updated from timesheets.

    You can: sync actuals with the Synch actuals command on the Tracking menu, or synch actuals when you save the project.

  • After you install the December 2013 or February 2014 cumulative update, every time that you open a project in Project 2010, all built-in filters and filters in the global template are copied to and duplicated in the project.

    If you connect to a Project Server, then every time that you save the enterprise global template, these filters will be copied to it. Additionally, you may receive a message that resembles the following:

    The enterprise global already contains a filter named "Critical".

    Do you want to replace the filter with the one from the enterprise global, replace all items with duplicate names, rename the filter in the project, or cancel opening the project?
