Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you have previously opened a given project from Project Web App (PWA) into Project Professional 2013. Then, you start Project Professional 2013, you click File, and you click Open. When you select the project in the Recent Projects list, Project 2013 may crash.

  • When you run a macro that executes the Calendar.Reset method in Project 2013, Project may crash.

  • When you open a .mpp file that is created from an earlier version of Project in Project 2013, Project 2013 may stop responding.

  • Assume that you open a .mpp file that is created from an earlier version of Project in Project 2013, and that the "Save files in this format" option is set to the same version as the .mpp file that you are opening. When you try to save the .mpp file, Microsoft Project 2013 asks whether you want to save the project to the Project 2013 MPP format, which is unnecessary.

  • When you run a custom report that uses parameter queries to filter results it may take a long time for the report to display. You may also notice that Project consumes a large amount of memory and the size of the file grows significantly.

  • Assume that you apply a custom date based interactive filter to a view in a project in Project 2013. Then, you switch to a different view. When you change back to the original view, the Date/Time Picker control associated with the interactive filter may not work.

  • Assume that you have a project that has a budget resource assigned to the project summary task. When you view the project in Project Center within Project Web App, the Gantt bar does not correctly display the progress status of the project.


  • If you start Project 2013 and try to connect to Project Server before you log on to Project Web App (PWA), Project may crash.

  • Assume that you create a text enterprise custom field that contains a lookup table in Project Web App. When you use the text enterprise custom field to apply a grouping to an enterprise view in the enterprise global template in Project 2013, Project 2013 crashes and then restarts.

  • When you print a note of a task, and the note spans a page break, the remaining part of the note after the break is missing in Project 2013.
