Issue that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • The Views Publishing service (Vwnotify.exe) stops responding (hangs) when you publish or save a project to Project Server 2003

    When you use Project Professional 2003 to publish or to save a project that contains custom calendar information to Project Server 2003, the Views Publishing service on the server stops responding (hangs). When you open Task Manager, you notice that CPU usage for the VWNotify.exe process increases to and stays at 100 percent.

    To restore the functionality of the Vwnotify.exe process, you must either stop and then restart the Vwnotify.exe process, or restart the server.
