Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you move assignments around in the Team Planner in Project 2013, Project may stop responding or crash.
  • Assume that the Youdao Dictionary application is running. When you copy information or perform actions like resizing columns, task GUIDs are renumbered with the result that task dependencies no longer connect properly.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • On a Project Server, you have at least two user accounts defined by using the following properties:
      • Both have the same name.
      • One is defined that the User can be assigned as a resource check box is selected and the other is not.
    • You start Project 2013 and connect to Project Server.
    • You add an enterprise resource to a project and you save it.
    • You make some changes in the project and try to save the changes.
    In this scenario, the saving operation may fail.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a task that contains a long name in a project in Project 2013.
    • In another project, you create a task dependency to the task with the long name.
    • You review the relationship information by clicking the Links Between Projects button in the Project tab.
    In this scenario, the Task column is not scrollable so that you cannot see the whole task name in the Links Between Projects dialog box.

  • Assume that you open and edit a project from Project Server in Project Professional 2013, and the Protected Actuals feature is enabled. You try to change an assignment's time-phased work (remaining work) values. In this situation, you receive the "Your action may result in actuals in this project becoming out of sync with the actuals updated from timesheets" message.
  • Assume that you have at least two Project Web App (PWA) sites, and you have different profiles in Project Professional for each sites. In this situation, when you browse to the Project Center and then click to open a project in Project Professional, the wrong profile may be used and information in the profile is overwritten with the wrong details.
