Great News!  The latest Cumulative Update (CU) has been released.  This include a number of fixes, so Microsoft strongly recommends that you test this in a test environment based on your production environment before putting this fix live in production.  Don’t miss the note below on some Project Server 2007 fixes released that just missed the CU.

The article below provides information on how to deploy the Project Server Cumulative Update.

We strongly recommend that you install WSS and Office Servers 2007 Service Pack 2.  The KB articles below provide information on how to download and install SP2 if you have not already done so.

The server patches require that WSS and Office Servers 2007 SP1 be installed.  For clarity, SP1 is required and SP2 is strongly recommended.  Here are the links to the SP1 Server Patches for your convenience:

How to deploy the 2007 Microsoft Office servers Service Pack 1 and Office Server Language Pack 2007 Service Pack 1

The Server CU is released in two different versions.  The first version is in Individual Packages specific to a particular product like WSS and Project Server.  These are smaller downloads but they do not include language packs or patches for other products so patches for those products would have to be downloaded and installed separately. 

The second version is the Server Rollup Packages.  This is a set of two rollup packages which contains all the fixes for WSS, Project Server and MOSS.  These packages should be used when MOSS is part of the deployment and/or you have language packs installed.  The Server Rollup Packages are much larger (~200MB each) but they will greatly simplify MOSS patch deployment.

You can read about the fixes included in the February CU from the following articles:

Note:  There has been a follow-up CU build that was released just after the February CU.  This CU contains three fixes that are not included in the February CU.  Please check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980854 to see if these are fixes you need.  This CU also contains all of the fixes in the February CU so you will not need to install the February CU if you install this fix unless you are a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) user.  Customers running MOSS will want to install the server rollup fixes and then the post-February CU.  This CU will not be downloadable from the KB so you will need to open a Support Case in order to obtain it.  Customers with existing cases open for the February CU do not need to open another case.

Note:  There may be a few day delay before all of the articles are published.  You can download the CU files through the links at the end of this email should the articles not be available when you click the link.  This will give you a head start on testing the patches in preparation for deploying them into production.

  • The post-CU updates for Project referenced:

    "Please check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980854 to see if these are fixes you need"

    This still does not exist.  Is there a better KB to reference?  I found through a resource that they reference:

    1. PSVR2007 - Updating a Text Custom Field and Publishing from PWA causes Graphical Indicators to disappear

    2. PSVR2007 - Actual work in Project is moved after submitted in PWA

    3. PSVR2007 - Project Managers received access denied messages when attempting to set close tasks to update option

    But I would like more data on these prior to updating my environment.

    Cheers,
