I am using a standalone P6 v16.2 and cannot get logged on after my computer crashed.   I keep getting error message that 'user is logged on'.

Any advice on how to clear this?

Doyin,

The issue is that, due to the computer crash, the user session that was last used hasn't been closed, and therefore P6 thinks that user is still logged in. You have to be able to connect to the database and modify some of the records - in this case delete the user sesson record.

Luckily as you're using SQLite, its somewhat easy, you can use a tool like DB Browser for SQLite to view and modify SQLite data tables.

Follow these instructions on how to use the DB Browser: http://www.p6academy.com/index.php/n111-primavera-p6-with-sqlite-and-sqlite-browser/

And the Scripts you need to run to delete the user session record is shown here: https://deepinthecode.com/2018/06/29/primavera-p6-session-hung-on-oracle-database/ you can use the same commands.

Hi Doyin,

Which Windows are you on (7, 8, 10)

Are you using SQL Server or SQLite as the database, if SQL Server then which version?
