Summary:   Administrators can register event handlers for Microsoft Project Server by using the Events page in Microsoft Project Web App. To register an event handler, the event handler assembly must be physically present on all application servers in the farm. If the event handler cannot be located, it cannot be loaded and executed.

Cause:   An administrator might have deleted the event handler or moved it to a different location. To avoid errors, the registration information in Project Web App must be updated when an administrator deletes or moves an event handler. The system looks for the registered event handler when a server side event occurs.

Possible resolutions include the following:

  • Perform the following steps:

    • Verify the existence of the event handler assembly on all application servers in the farm.

    • Use the Events page in Project Web App to update the event handler registration with the correct location of the event handler assembly.
