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.

Hi there,

Please check that your project is being saved in sub sub sub directory.

Primevera has a limit for this make a new directory in root and try to save it there.

if the temp file directory is located on server, please allow every user have his own temp file directory. Some the temp file may be in same name, if one user already "point" to that file, others may have trouble.

dieter well i do not have proper access rights under windows but these files are not located on c drive, they are located on main server.
but if i guess that the temporary files are stored in p3 directory and not having proper rights will not schedule the project, am i right.

Hi Mangesh
Do you have appropriate access rights under Window? Temporary files will be written into a certain directoy - in general under P3WIN. You’ll need the appropriate rights for this directory.
