March 2013 update of the Project 2013 SDK download file

The Project 2013 SDK download is updated. The conceptual, how-to, and reference documentation in the download closely matches the Project 2013 developer documentation online content published on MSDN.

The Project2013SDK.msi download file now installs properly on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

The Project 2013 SDK download contains:

  • The on-premises Reporting database schema reference , ProjectServer2013_ReportingDB.chm, and the OLAP cube schema reference. 
  • Updated VBA Help for local use. Objects such as Chart, Report, Series, and Shape now show correct members tables, properties, and methods topics.
  • Basic reference topics for the JavaScript client-side object model (JSOM), which includes REST endpoints and HTTP request syntax. You can use the JSOM for development of Project Online solutions for cross-browser web apps and for non-Windows platforms.
  • Sixteen complete code solutions, including two task pane apps (with minor updates) for Project, the QuickStatus app sample for Project Server and Project Online, eight client-side object model (CSOM) solutions, two solutions for querying the ProjectData service for reporting, and three updated legacy PSI solutions.
  • DLLs and a license for redistribution of the Project Server CSOM assemblies, JavaScript files for the CSOM, the Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library assembly, and the Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Events.Receivers library for on-premises development.
    Notes:   1. The attached file contains the RTM build 15.0.4420.1017 of the Project Server assemblies for redistribution.
                  2. The file also includes the Microsoft.Office.Project.Schema.dll assembly, for developing event handlers.
                  3. Project CSOM solutions also require the redistributable DLLs for the SharePoint 2013 CSOM, 
                      which are at SharePoint Server 2013 Client Components SDK.
  • Updated Intellisense files for the PSI and CSOM, source code for creating a PSI proxy assembly, and instructions on how to update the PSI proxy files.
  • XML schemas for the Project client, AppProvisioning, and the Statusing PSI.
