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.

Its my first time using Primavera P3 in this workstation, and everytime I
try to Schedule the project, the error message
"Problem with spawn to scheduler, Return = -1"
I also tried a new project with only 2 activities, and the same error shows up.

Thanks for any help.

Have you tried re-installing the software?
What version are you using?
Whats you OS?
If you plan to use P3 over the long term, I suggest that you enroll in an authorized P3 Basic Course (Course 601) to ease your learning.

Good luck!
