Version 1

    Ivanti Security and Patch News



    ·         (April 7, 2017) Microsoft has released KB3178708 which is an update for Project 2016. This update includes the following improvements and fixes:
    In some circumstances, leveling on a week-by-week basis pushes tasks to the end of time (12/31/2149). Meanwhile, the leveling operation takes a long time to complete, and Project 2016 is unresponsive during that time.
    After you upgrade from Project 2013 to Project 2016, manually scheduled tasks are not updated correctly. For example, you create a project that has a manually scheduled task by using Project 2013 and open it from your server by using Project 2016. Then you update the task's duration and save the project. However, the change does not appear in PWA or when it's opened again in Project 2013.
    The Links Between Project dialog box incorrectly displays "File Not Found" in the Differences column for projects that exist and are available on your Project Server.
    Consider the following scenario:
    You install either of the following updates that target Internet Explorer.
    October 2016 security monthly quality rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
    October 2016 Security Only Quality Update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
    After this, you use one of the following features in Project:
    Task Inspector.
    Import Project Wizard
    Import Resources Wizard
    In this situation, the given feature pane isn't displayed as expected.
    When you use the Copy Timeline function in Project 2016, the timescale doesn't align correctly with where the bars are scheduled and shown. For example, you have a task that begins January 23, 2017. However, the timescale marker that shows January 21, 2017 appears later than the start of the task.
    Removing the start date from a resource assignment may cause the start date of the task to reschedule to "as soon as possible", and this may cause huge leading splits on the assignment.
    When you open the Build Team dialog box in Project 2016 and enable the Online status next to name display option, Project may crash.
    When you assign a task to a resource with a max units 0, the assignment units is unexpectedly assigned as 100%.
    When you edit an assignment finish date from a Task From type view, Project 2016 may crash.
    When you open a project file from a SharePoint site through the Recent menu in Project 2016, the file is opened with read/write permission, and you are not prompted to check out the project even though the Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited? SharePoint option is enabled.
