Recently we purchased Microsoft Project 2016 licenses for our users. In terms of Functionality – All seems to be working fine except
Whenever user tried to assign resources using option `Assign Resources` , project crashed/stopped working with below error …
After little R&D, we found that this is a standard bug in MS Project 2016 and it was fixed with Patch released on February 9, 2016
After updating patch, all went fine.
Advise of the day ! (Golden Rule)
Although we have WSUS (Windows Update Servers) in our organization which regularly update the clients windows , but general patches for MS OFFICE was not selected in the checklist, & that’s the main reason why we had to face this issue. Always keep your Windows and other softwares UP TO DATE. It will keep you away from UNWANTED guests 😉 You know what I mean 🙂
