Thanks to Brian and the Microsoft team for the announcement and the great work on the December 2011 Project and Project Server 2007 and 2010 Cumulative Updates and Hotfixes. 

This article calls out the specific links for each, however you should be aware that there is also a TechNet webcast in January to discuss both of these December 2011 CUs.  Click here to register for the webcast.

Now for the details of the December 2011 releases taken from MSFT’s post.  Note that the Project Server 2007 December Cumulative Update had to be rebuilt and MSFT expects the patch to be released the week of December 19th.

Thanks again.

Project and Project Server 2010

Project and Server 2010 CU includes 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 and I would agree with this.

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

Server Rollup Package (Microsoft Recommended):  This includes SharePoint Server, PerformancePoint Services, and Project Server hotfixes.  See the article: Description of the Project Server 2010 cumulative update package (Project server-package): December 13, 2011 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2597015

Individual Project Server Package:  Only required if you do not install the Server Rollup.

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 MSFT 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.   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.
  1. Extract the patch package by running the .exe file that you downloaded.
  2. Run the extracted .exe file to apply the patch to your Project Professional/Standard client.

Project and Project Server 2007

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.

There was an issue found with the Project Server 2007 December Cumulative Update and it had to be rebuilt.  The issue has been fixed and MSFT expects the patch to be released the week of December 19th.
