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.

Does primavera 3 works on win 8 ??


There are a lot of questions about this, without any answers! So I guess the answer is 'No'
It seems you would need to install both versions P6 and P3 on Win 8 then export P3 files to P6 to run, but even that isn't easy.

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

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
