I am having difficulties installing "sample projects" that come with the software in a Stand alone Installation of P6.
I installed P6 and I chose to install sample projects by ticking the box during the installation process; but when I finished the installation and I ran the software there were no project on the data base.

Could you please help in getting all sample projects installed or restored.

I appreciate your help.

It is good to install the sample projects on the website. Students refer websites to get the code of projects. if we share those codes and details in the website it becomes very helpful for them and they can refer this code for their further studies. commercial makeup artist

Hi M B M

If it is networking you need go and set up with Linkedin.

Best regards

Hi Mike,

Due to the interconnection between different IT programs, it is "trial and error" methods that sometime I am left with as I am not an IT expert. P6 is an integrated software that uses Oracle or SQL data base systems and planners are faced sometimes with the need to understand how they are interlinked in order to resolve a specific issue. IT programs also are not error free, therefore networking is very useful.

Thanks

Thank you Rodel,

Actually I had also to recover my "Windows Vista Business" and I re-installed all the programs I needed. I also installed P6 Standalone and this time it did work perfectly. The reason it did not work the first time is I had SQL Server (Primavera) installed. Even though I tried to uninstall and reinstall P6 but I could not have the sample project installed probably because, as you said, the data base couldn’t be overwritten.

Anyway... thank you very much; I have my sample projects
installed.

Thanks again.

If you install Standalone Primavera but there is a previous installation and SQL Database are already existing it will not overwrite the database even sample project was selected.
The only way is un-installed the existing SQL Database and re-installed again.
WARNING: If the existing database is un-installed all files stored will be gone.

Hi M B B

It is not good practice to post your email address in the open forum - there are spammers about.

Congratulations in actually installing your P6 software - I have never done it yet.

Best regards

Mike Testro.
