I know this announcement is coming a little late, but with the release of SP1 and all the other stuff going on we just realized (with a nudge from Treb) that we had missed posting the usual CU message.  Also there was a refresh of the Project and SharePoint Server 2010 June CU package shortly after the initial release – so make sure if you downloaded or applied these early after the initial release that you have the final release (14.0.6106.5002)  On the the announcement:

The TechNet Webcast for SP1 for Project and Project Server 2010 also included a round-up of the fixes in the June CU and is available at https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032487727&CountryCode=US.  I also posted the Q&A coming from the webcast at Project Server 2010- SP1 and June CU Questions and Answers – and also posted about an issue identified just after the release of SP1 and the June CU at Project Server 2010- SP1 and June 2011 CU–FormatException when trying to provision a PWA site.

If you are loading the June CU for 2010 we would also encourage you to load SP1 – see Announcing The Release Of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft Project and Project Server 2010 for full details, and particularly the TechNet article at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh272536.aspx - Deploy Service Pack 1 for Project Server 2010

Updates for Project Server 2010

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/projectserver/gg176680.aspx

As Project Server 2010 is now based on SharePoint Server 2010 we strongly recommend that you install the Project Server 2010 Server Rollup Package as there are a large number of individual server packages for SharePoint Server. The Project Server 2010 Server Rollup Package contains all the patches released in this Cumulative Update for SharePoint Foundation Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2010 and Project Server 2010.

For those accustomed to Project Server 2007 Cumulative Updates, you should note that the MOSS Server Rollup Package does not contain the Project Server patches. You will need to make sure that you install the MOSS + Project Server Rollup Package (the link is provided below). As in Project Server 2007, the Server Rollup Packages are much larger but they will greatly simplify your Project Server patch deployment.

Client Installation:

Installation of the client patch is straightforward and is the same as it was in Project 2007. The instructions for installing the client patch are below.

NOTE: Microsoft strongly recommends testing within a NON-Production environment prior to rollout.

  1. Download the hotfix from the link in the KB Article.
  2. Extract the patch package by running the .exe file that you downloaded.
  3. Run the extracted .exe file to apply the patch to your Project Professional/Standard client.

Service Pack 2 for both WSS and Office Servers 2007 are required for this Cumulative Update. The KB articles below provide information on how to download and install SP2 if you have not already done so.

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 but they will greatly simplify MOSS patch deployment.

Client Installation:

In order to install this hotfix, you will need to have Microsoft Project 2007 SP2 installed on the client.

Once we know that SP2 is installed, you will install the hotfix by performing the following steps:

NOTE: Microsoft strongly recommends testing within a NON-Production environment prior to rollout.

  1. Download the hotfix from either the KB Article or by using the information at the end of this email.
  2. Extract the patch package by running the .exe file that you downloaded.
  3. Run the extracted .exe file to apply the patch to your Project Professional/Standard SP1 client.

Feel free to open a support incident at http://support.microsoft.com if you run into any issues with the installation and we will be happy to help!
