Project 2010 and Project Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) Released

Project 2010 and Project Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) Released

I am pleased to announce the arrival of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Project 2010, Project Server 2010 and of course SharePoint Server 2010.  The SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 also Project Server 2010 SP2, so no need to load both if you have a SharePoint + Project farm – just load the SharePoint Server 2010 SP2.  *** Update - Looking at the file sizes and descriptions - I suspect the note on the Project Server SP2 KB article is incorrect and should read that 2687452 Includes 2687453 - and not the other way around - so if you have SharePoint and Project Server you just need the Project Server 2010 SP2 - 2687452 ***.

The Service Packs contain all cumulative fixes since SP1, starting with the June 2011 Cumulative Update (CU) and the July 2011 Public Update (PU) all the way through to the April 2013 CU and May 2013 PU.  The Service Packs also contain previously unreleased fixes.  In addition to general product fixes, these fixes include improvements in stability, performance, and security.The complete list of fixes is available here.

The KB articles and downloads can be found at the following links, and the downloads are also available via the Microsoft Update website.

  • We found two problems with this service.

    1- Minor - The synchronization users service  does not restart .

    2- Major -  All our custom query in the db Projetct_Reporting are lost! Is it normal? Is it possible to avoid this in the future ?

  • Hi Roland, I'm not familiar with the service restart issue - I'll see if I can find out more.  For you custom queries how were these named.  Usually we leave anything custom alone - but I know we have some update code that will blow away our stuff before re-writing and will use wild cards - so if you have not used a different schema and have copied our naming convention then this may be the cause of the loss.

    Best regards,

    Brian

  • Hi Brian, besides the fixes, are there any significant functionality changes to PS2010 (PWA Pages) with SP2?

  • Brian,

    Is there a list of updates included in 2687457 available?  We are specifically looking for 2687386, Project 2010 hotfix package (Project-x-none.msp).  I can usually find these types of details but not this time.  Any help will be appreciated.

  • What custom queries were lost?  Are you able to run the SQL query in Management Studio?  

  • We are running Project Server 2010, and of course SharePoint 2010, is there an order to installing these service packs (like SharePoint SP2 first and then Project Server SP2)?

    thanks, John B

  • Like John B., I am wondering about the order if installation?   SP2 for SP, then SP2 for PS, or the other way around?  Thanks.

  • We have a vision impaired user that would like to enter time into MSPS2010 timesheet cells, but we cannot find a way to make it work.  Does Microsoft or anyone know how to do this.  This person is able to work on a computer using software that tell them what they are on, but it does not tell them what timesheet cell they are on.
