This article describes update KB3114568 for Microsoft Project 2010, which was released on February 9, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a 1d task that has an assigned resource and the assignment has 8h of work on a single day.
  • You set the assignment contour to front-loaded. At this point, you now have two daily work segments of 6.67h and 1.33h.
  • You save the project as an XML file and reopen it.
In this situation, the work contour is lost and the opened assignment has a single work segment of 8h. In a related scenario, if you open an XML file, Project 2010 may crash and become unresponsive. This issue occurs after you install December 8, 2015, update for Project 2010 (KB3114419).
