This article describes update KB3118266 for Microsoft Project 2016, which was released on September 6, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update on the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • Assume that you create an .mpp file in a SharePoint document library and then synchronize the library to the local computer by using OneDrive, and the file path is longer than 130 characters. In this situation, the .mpp file can’t be opened in Project 2016.

  • Assume that you create a project from a template in Project Web App. When you try to enter timephased cost date or actual cost date for a cost resource in Project 2016, the values that you enter can't be applied, and Project 2016 may crash.

  • When you merge or append a tab-delimited text document into an existing project, merged changes can't be saved in Project 2016.
