Hello to all,

I am trying to find out why a certain dialog box appears right after I login to P6.  

So, the P6 "Login to Primavera P6" dialog box comes up on starting the program.  I plug in my password, and the the login dialog box title changes to "Connecting to database...", then "Validating user...", then this is when I get a "Primavera P6" dialog box with the following text and an "OK" button:
 Can someone 1) explain what this means, and 2) how it can be resolved?  

Thanks in advance for your help!

Try logging into SQL Server 2005 Express and highlight the pmdb$primavera database. Click on New Query and paste the following command on the query pane at top right:

select log_time, source, type, description from dbo.bgplog;

then click on Execute and that is all.

If it works good, but don't ask me why, is a solution I read somewhere else.
