July 3, 2018, update for Project 2016 (KB4022217)

Applies to: Project Professional 2016Project Standard 2016

This article describes update 4022217 for Microsoft Project 2016 that was released on July 3, 2018. 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


This update fixes the following issues:

  • Assume that you apply a different view (such as the Gantt Chart view) to a project that has the Network Diagram view applied. When you apply the Network Diagram view again to the project, the nodes are lost and the dependency lines are drawn to random places. In some cases, Project may crash.
  • The actual work values of a task and the assigned resource are inconsistent. For example, the task shows actual work as 5.66 hours and the assignments shows actual work as 5.67 hours.
  • Task EAC value is not calculated as expected for a project in Project 2016. For example, when you compare the EAC field in a project that's opened in Project 2010, there is a value difference of anywhere from a few cents to several thousand dollars (assuming the dollar currency).
  • When you select the Open button from the Project Web App resource center without any resource selected, you see the message "To perform this action, you need to have Project Professional 2016 installed." In this case, if you dismiss the message, you cannot edit enterprise resources.
  • If you use a 32-bit version of Project and you use the Update Project function to reschedule uncompleted work, you may not see an expected Planning Wizard page that tells you that Project did not reschedule certain unscheduled tasks because of a constraint that's applied to them.
  • The actual finish date that you enter is ignored for a task if the task has a Finish No Earlier Than (FNET) constraint and the actual finish date is earlier than the FNET constraint.
