June 6, 2017, update for Project 2013 (KB3191941)

Applies to: Project Standard 2013Project Professional 2013

This article describes update KB3191941 for Microsoft Project 2013, which was released on June 6, 2017. 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 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

  • Translates some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.

  • Pasting into the Resource Names field within the Task Usage view allows you to paste the same resource name more than once. This creates a duplicate and causes problems when you apply status updates from Project Server.
  • This update fixes the following issues:

    • When you open an XML file that has timephased baseline data in Project 2013, the timephased data appears incorrectly. For example, on Saturday, the timephased baseline work should appear as 0.9h, but it instead appears as 0.88h.

    • When you open a project from Project Server, you incorrectly see the following error message: 

      This project cannot be opened in read-write mode because a previous project checkin for this project is not complete.

    • When you open a .mpp file from a network location that has high latency, it takes a long time to open the file.

    • Consider the following:

      • A project manager publishes a task to a team member.

      • The team member in either a timesheet or in tasks within Project Web App reports work that's earlier than what was scheduled. For example, 8h of work was scheduled on Wednesday but 8h of actual work was reported and submitted for Monday.

      • The status manager approves the update.

      • The team member zeros out the actual work and moves it to a later date.

      • The status manager approves the update.

      • The project is opened in Project Server.

      In this situation, the task's actual start date still reflects the set with the earlier update instead of the new update where the actual start date is later.
