Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Enterprise project templates are not sorted alphabetically in Project Professional 2013 making it difficult to find a specific template if you have a large amount.
  • When you try to print a file that has grouping applied with the Maintain hierarchy option enabled, Project 2013 crashes.
  • If you use a split view with the usage view on the bottom in a project, Project 2013 may crash.
  • When you use Project 2013 on a high DPI device, dropdowns in dialog boxes may not be drawn correctly.
  • When you create a security category, category rule is ignored that results in incorrect effective permissions.
  • When you try to level resources in some projects that contain combinations of task constraints, Project may crash.
  • When you run a macro that uses the DeliverableUpdate method, the time component of the deliverable start date and finish date is not updated correctly. For example, if the deliverable start date and time is March 31, 2014 10:00 AM, the deliverable start date is updated instead to March 31, 2014 12:00 AM.
  • You cannot reference assignments with a unique ID as returned by the object model. Additionally, you receive the following error message: 
    Run-time error '1101'. The argument value is not valid
  • When you log on to a Project Server that uses Project Professional, it may take longer than expected if the server has many lookup tables and defined values.
  • Assume that you add some users to a project and the project is published. After the user synchronization process is complete, not all the users are added to the project’s SharePoint site in the given SharePoint security group as expected.
  • When you group assignments in usage views in Project 2013, grouping row labels do not always appear and assignments may appear in an incorrect grouping.
  • When you link tasks between projects and use a combination of auto-scheduled tasks and manually scheduled tasks, the start date of the auto-scheduled tasks can be calculated incorrectly.
