project 2010 kb 2596495
Project 2010—KB 2596495
  • 30813 – After changing data on a project that has many tasks in it, it can take multiple seconds for Project to recalculate and give control back to the user
  • 30828 – The finish date for a deliverable dependency is displayed incorrectly in the tooltip. This is a follow-up to fix 28970
  • 30898 - Project stops responding when you open projects that have bad manually scheduled task dates
  • 30907 - The background color and patterns in the Network Diagram view do not render correctly when they are printed or previewed

Project 2010—KB 2596495
  • 30982 – Projects from Project 2007 may not open correctly in Project 2010 if custom Duration fields have been defined
  • 30990 – Modifying time-phased work in Project Professional moves actual work; additionally, the "Out of Sync" message does not occur
  • 31069 – If you print an MPP file directly from Windows Explorer, the process fails, and you receive the message "An unexpected error."
  • 31129 - Sync to Protected Actuals on a completed zero work task causes the task start date to revert to NA; this leads to a Reporting (Project Publish) queue job failure
project 2010 kb 25964952
Project 2010—KB 2596495
  • 31136 – Deliverables fail to update correctly if there are more than 159 deliverables in one project

Project Server 2010—KB 2596498
  • 30738 – In the Approval Center, the last sent updates are displayed in red, now matching the Project Server 2007 behavior
  • 30887 – In Project Web App (PWA), creating a new project from a template ignores the “Active” task flag
  • 30906 - When a status manager accepts updates, entering too many characters into the comments window causes an error, and the update is not applied and is lost
  • 30924 - Accepting assignment updates may zero out work and duration values on incomplete fixed-duration tasks
project server 2010 kb 25964981
Project Server 2010—KB 2596498
  • 30964 – A large volume of shadow table records created by Project Server leads to performance problems in Project Professional. Note: There may still be issues when custom flag fields are involved
  • 30966 – While in a timesheet, information in the "Task hierarchy“ field does not immediately display
  • 30995 – Custom field information from a timesheet is lost after importing into My Tasks; The same issue was addressed in Project Server 2007 in fix 27626
  • 31073 – In the Approval Center, assignments that have enterprise custom fields with lookup tables may appear even though the assignment hasn’t been changed
project server 2010 kb 25964982
Project Server 2010—KB 2596498
  • 31115 – Tasks that are closed are incorrectly removed from a user’s timesheet
  • 31116 – When grouping is applied in a timesheet, an extra grouping row is added, making the view very cluttered
  • 31122 – Material and other such assignments don't appear on team members’ task lists; Also, the New Tasks reminder counts incorrectly
  • 31145 – The Timesheet created event is triggered before the assignments have been added and saved

project server 2007 kb 2596542
Project Server 2007—KB 2596542
  • 30388 – A large volume of shadow table records created by Project Server leads to performance problems in Project Professional; This is the same issue as in Project Server 2010
  • 31105 – A resource plan gets checked in before saving, which leads to an error that it is not checked out to you and blocks further use of the build team functionality
  • 31118 – The numbered week time dimension in the OLAP cube doesn’t sort correctly in places like a Data Analysis view
