November Updates out now for Project and Server 2010, 2013 and 2016


The title isn’t quite true – as there are no server updates for 2016 obviously as it isn’t released yet – and nothing new for 2010 but there is an uber package – but the title would have been too long…

The blog post with all the details is out at Project Server 2010, 2013 and 2016 November 2015 PU Announcement.

Sharing one tip here too that I used when preparing the post.  I always download and install all the updates on my 2010, 2013 and 2016 systems before posting – just to be sure it all goes ok, but I was finding that the links from the KB articles were not coming up correctly so that when I clicked on the download links in the KB articles, like this one for the Project Server 2013 rollup – KB2101369 :

I hit an error telling me the page couldn’t be found.  The link for the above download is:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b9ea7019-91d7-49a3-bb91-2c42fa0ff26a

and when it works this should take you automatically to the following download page:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49828

If it doesn’t work for you (and this may never happen again – but if it does…) then you can just go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads and search for the KB number and that will find the download page:

Seems this was quite a broad issue with the redirection to downloads as it was also affecting the October updates yesterday morning too.

    Hi,

    Brian I'm trying to track down a problem we're having related to opening project files from a SharePoint document library.

    We deploy Project 2013 standard but my MSDN license only has the Project 2013 Professional version for download and product key.

    So 2 questions:

    1. have you heard of a issue with the project client not being able to update project files in SharePoint?

    2. Why does MSDN not have the standard editions of project 2013 and 2016 available but lets me download the professional version?

    Thanks,

    David Osborne

      Brian, David’s questions below are similar to mine: opening project files from a SharePoint document library. We currently try to do this with Project 2010 and 2013 on the desktop… but no joy. Could you point me to the fix for this specific issue? Has this been resolved in Project 2016 Professional desktop version?

    Hi Brain,
    I am working in Microsoft Project server 2010 (PWA 2010) timesheet to update the existing timesheets through web service (timesheet.asmx), I could able to update and submit my own timesheet successfully through web service. Since I am an admin user, I can able to take delegate to other users timesheets and update. I tried this in code and created the delegate successfully using (resource.asmx web service, CreateDelegate() method. However I could not find how to start the delegate session through code.
