Understanding Project Server 2010 Error ID 12015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any known bugs with Project Server 2010 producing the error ID 12015.

    I have a user who has the most up to date version of Project Pro 2010 who cannot open projects from Project Server 2010.

    Below is there screenshot showing their Project Pro version:

    We have the oldest version of Project Pro in Project Server set to 14.0.6134.5000

    Below is a screenshot of the Error ID they are receiving with a completely new version I have never seen before:

    I have been researching for days trying to figure out where the 14.0.4751.1000 version number is coming from. We have all our users on the same versions that are displayed in the first screenshot. 

    Has anyone ran into this issue before?

  • Hi,

    In server setting (additional server settings in operational policies), a minimal version of the  client (MS Project Pro) should have been defined. Meaning that client under this minimal version cannot connect to Project Server and will receive this message on Project Pro tentative to connect to Project Server.

    Either try to remove this minimal version number, or upgrade the user's client.

    Hope this helps.

  • I understand you can change the MPP version inside Project Server to meet the needs of the error displayed.

    We currently have the MPP version set to 14.0.6134.5000:

    The first screenshot in my first post shows that the user in question has the same version. 

    The question I have is why does the Error ID 12015 show a completely older version 14.0.4751.1000 for the user. When the first screenshot actually shows his real version of 14.0.6134.5000.

  • 14.0.4751.1000 is of that users MPP. 

    and minimum 14.0.6134.5000 version is specified in project server instance. But your user is having 14.0.4751.1000 version 

    So resolution is either user update mpp with latest Cu or you specified 14.0.4751.1000 version in project server .

    As every after Cu update version is getting changed of MPP

  • Yes but why does this users MPP show this?

    How can we update his version when his version already shows being up to date?

  • Hi BC,

    Indeed you have a discrepency between the version number in the error message and the actual client version.

    I'd suggest to reinstall MS Project Pro on the user desktop.

    Hope this helps.

  • BC8804 --

    Pardon me for bumping into this thread, but before you reinstall Microsoft Project 2010 for the user, I would recommend that the user run a repair on his/her copy of Microsoft Project 2010.  Sometimes that fixes strange problems, similar to the one your user is experiencing.  Hope this little bit extra helps.

  • I would try clearing all the cache first. When clearing the cache, you will note that project shows the directory where the cache exists.   Once I cleared both caches, I would exit project pro and then go to the directory and delete directory too.  At this point, cache is completely clear.

    PS. I see this particular problem with laptop docking stations, where project manager pull laptop out of dock, when project is still open.  The cache switches from wired to wireless..  Not sure if this is the cause, but real common source of issue.
