Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

"Yield=On" is already present in the PM.INI file.

But the error still persists.

The issue is caused by a missing setting in the PM.ini file.

SOLUTION

Edit the user's PM.ini file to add "Yield=ON" under [Printer Options] and save the file. After the user logs out and back in again, the change will be reflected.

The location of the PM.ini file may be in the default location (ex. C:\Program Files\Oracle\Primavera P6\P6 Professional\PM.ini) or in a user's "home" folder (ex. C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\Oracle\Primavera P6\P6 Professional\).
