The software knows whether the file is in use by creating a "lock file". When you "fix" a locked file it usually means the software deletes the file that prevented access your file/document and not that it dropped the user currently using that file instead of you. The software only allows you to fix a locked file, because rarely the software makes a mistake and does not clear the lock file. While it assumes you've verified you're right and it's wrong. In my experience, the file is actually in use either by a system process, through a remote account, or by a user you just couldn't locate. The software locking up when you force the deletion of the lock file is always the result of a read/write error. This is usually a good indication two sources are in fact trying to utilize the same file.

Restart your computer in safe mode. To do this first power it down wait 10 seconds. Locate the F8 key; press power button an start tapping F8 key. This will bring you to a screen with many options. Choose safe mode. This is a limited mode but many things can be fixed including your profile. Option 1. Go to control panel user accounts. Here you can add an account. Option 2 Delete your account (make sure there is another account you can log into prior to doing this) Go to start->computer right click then click properties. In system properties click advanced tab. Under user profiles click settings. In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete, click Delete, and then click OK. Click Start, type regedit in the Search box, and then press ENTER. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

I can start my Primavera P6 with OS windows 7, I use P6 stand alone. database configuration said ''Bad public user name or...


The standalone DB Configuration seems simple but can be tricky When you configure the DB you have to use a Coded Username for the AdminSuperuser permissions "admprm$pm"! this user name makes your actual Log in username "Admin" you cannot use the admprm$pm at the Log in screen. Same with the Public User Permissions "pubprm$pm" gives read permissions but log in user name is "Public" Try the "Admin/Public" usernames if this does not work you may have to Uninstall and Reinstall. If you uninstall remember there are 2 peices of software to remove... P6 and the Oracle Database 10G
Refer to: http://www.tensixconsulting.com/2013/03/primavera-p6-database-connection-configuration-details/ For further DB Config Issues.

I just installed Primavera Project Management , and Methodology management. After logging in with the default username of admin and password of admin it comes back with the message " Unable to connect


You must connect to a database to utilize Primavera. You can not bypass this portion. So, Either remove the Database and reconfigure, or in the "Configure" Screen you can Name a new DB and use it. I would suggest that if you do not require 2 DB's not to have two. "The Oracle Database 10g" application that is installed with P6 (In your 'All Programs') will give you some DB manipulation options. Other wise refer to the TenSix link to clarify DB Config

My yahoo account has been locked How can i open please help me?


This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.

The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.

If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

To reset your password, or for further help, visit the following page:

My gateway is locked how do i unlock it


Assuming you mean WinXP os. Log in at the administrator's account (usually the password is blank). If you can't see this account hit ctrl+alt+del twice and at the screen type administrator and for password use none. Go start>settings>control panel>administrator tools>users, select your user account and with right click choose properties and change your password as you wish.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.
