Project and Project Server September 2016 Updates Released

I just posted the latest release information for on-premises Project and Project Server – both 2013 and 2016 – and even 1 fix for Project 2010!  Take a look over on the Project Support blog at 

Some points to note for Project Server 2016 public update for September – posted as known issues on the KB:

  • If you install the September 2016 public update for SharePoint Server 2016 and then perform a license upgrade from Standard to Enterprise, the license upgrade will time out before completing. This causes the license upgrade operation to fail.
  • If you want or need to perform a SharePoint 2016 license upgrade, you must complete the license upgrade before installing the September 2016 public update.
  • This issue will be fixed in a future public update.
  • Patching and upgrading the September 2016 public update for SharePoint Server 2016 may take three times longer than in previous public updates. Please be patient while the patching and upgrading operations are completing.

So if you are planning on making a license change then either do it before patching or wait for the fix which will be in a future update.  The last point – this update is SLOW.  Probably took about 6 or 7 hours on my non-production grade VM – hopefully you are running on better kit than my VM – but be prepared for a longer update than usual.

I’ve also updated the lists of fixes that I have on the Project Support blog – take a look at these for a quick way to see all the fixes for each version since we shipped – along with the version numbers of the client patches and the database versioning for the server products.
