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.

We have P3 running on a Windows XP Sp3 machine. At least once a week this program crashes when the engineer goes to hit the schedule button in P3 it literally freezes everything and the only way to...


I dont think this has much to do with Primavera itself.. Ive experienced this alot on our network with other "older" software applications that are 16 bit programs. First find the launch icon for P3 and right click it, under the compatibility option set it for an older platform "win98". It may be related to how the scheduler allocates memory when it runs. (its probably just the scheduler application part of P3 thats a problem) Might be useful to try and locate scheduler in the P3 program folder and do the compatibility mode setting for its launch icon too. Other causes may be restrictions in place if you are part of a windows domain network (ask your network admin) as group policy settings can prevent 16 bit applications from running. And lastly Ive seen Group policy folder permission settings blocking users from certain windows 16 bit program modules as well, all depending on how the program was made. Talk with your network guy, ask him if you are part of a domain GPO, if yes. look into the permission issue. If this is a Stand alone home style computer, Not joined to any network / domain ect. look at my first few comments. oh ya, also verify DEP "Data Execution Prevention" is not enabled for this program. Hope that helps, please write a comment if you need any clarification on anything above. Gurvy

Workloc directory is invalid or cannot be created (server 2003 install of p3.1)


I have 2 suggestions based on my assumptions since you did not elaborate on what environment you are having your P3, network or single user.
1. If you are logging on a network before you open your P3, it is most likely that you don’t have a read and write access to the P3WIN directory or any of its subfolders. So, first you have to log into your computer as an administrator, we call it local administration, and go to windows explorer, right click the P3 directory and choose sharing and security on the pop-up. Add your Network ID or make sure your network ID has all the access enabled for these directories. Then you can go back to the network and restart P3.
2. If it is single user, check your P3.ini located on Windows directory and see if the WORKLOC directory is beyond 54 characters from the root directory. P3 was created in the 90’s when DOS was still one of the reigning OS. So it means it follows the 8+3 rule of filenaming and other limitations. Make sure that the directory listed is as near as possible to the root directory, that is from C:\ Many errors in P3 are caused by these limitations since we’re already used with the new Windows OS’s wherein you can almost create a folder with endless description. My suggestion is, in using P3, try to minimize your folder names to 8 characters, same goes with filenaming.

My Primavera P6 is not letting me export it to a P3. That line is greyed out. Any other suggestions to get it exported to a P3?


You could get your administrator to give you rights to export or since that isnt likely you can bring up all of your columns copy and paste to a excel file that was created from P3. It's messy and you'll loose all your logic ties, but it's the only way I've every beaten the man.

especially this part:

Manually manage processor scheduling

There are a finite number of resources that are available for a computer's CPU. Windows manages these resources automatically, and can allocate tasks between processors or manage multiple processes on a single processor. You can adjust how Windows manages these resources by prioritizing them between the foreground programs and the background services.

By default, Windows puts a priority on the foreground programs. The added processing resources cause programs to respond more quickly. However, if you have background services, such as printing or disk backup that run while you work and you want them to respond faster, you can have Windows share processor resources equally between background and foreground programs.

Note: My personal recommendation is to allocate more resources to background services.

To manually change the performance of foreground and background programs, complete these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then press ENTER to open the System Properties dialog box.
2. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance click Settings.
3. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Processor scheduling use one of the following methods:
* Click Programs to assign more processor resources to the foreground programs. This setting is recommended for most users.
* Click Background services to assign equal amounts of processor resources to all running services. This includes print jobs and applications.
4. Click OK to apply preferences and close the dialog box.
