April 3, 2018, update for Project 2010 (KB3128038)

Applies to: Microsoft Project 2010 Service Pack 2

This article describes update 3128038 for Microsoft Project 2010 that was released on April 3, 2018. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2010. It doesn't apply to the Office 2010 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home (see Determining your Office version).

Improvements and fixes


After you install this update, when you save a project to the XML format, the following pieces of new information are exported:

  • The build number of Project that created the XML file.
  • Project, task, resource and assignment GUIDs.
  • Names of views.
  • Names of tables.
  • Names of filters.
  • Names of groups.
  • Names of data import and export maps.
  • Names of reports.
  • Names of drawings.

Project exports these pieces of information but does not read them when you open or merge an XML file. Therefore, you can't, for example, add or change view names within an XML file, and have Project read and understood the information.

Note If you do not want your XML files to have this new information, you can set the following registry key:

  • Location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\MS Project\Options\Save\
  • Type: DWORD
  • Name: SimpleXmlexport
  • Value: 1
