February 7, 2017, update for Project 2016 (KB3141514)

This article describes update KB3141514 for Microsoft Project 2016, which was released on February 7, 2017. 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:
  • When you open a project that has a milestone task, an actual start date may be added unexpectedly even though it did not have a date the last time it was saved.
  • A task's % Complete value is also updated unexpectedly after you update the % Work Complete value.
  • The Cost Performance Index (CPI) value on a summary task may incorrectly display a value that's similar to -99999999999999.
  • When you print a project view such as the Gantt chart one by one page in Project 2016, you may find that the row heights are taller than expected, that column widths are narrower than expected, and that font sizes are smaller than expected.
  • When you open a project and save it, the project ownership may unexpectedly change to you.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You are a user who edits projects in Project Professional or Project Web app.
    • You have been denied the Save Protected Baseline permission.
    • You open a project from Project Server.
    • You copy and paste a task to another location in the project.
    In this situation, the protected baseline (baseline 0 – baseline 5) data is pasted. Because you don't have permissions to create baseline data, the paste process should not replicate this detail from the copied task and its assignments.
