    ..Primavera\Project Management\PM.ini cannot be set to read-write status

    HawkerHunter
      I have installed Primavera P6.1 in a laptop under Administrator Login.

      After that, when I log in to the laptop with my user Id, primavera fails to start and gives the following message:

      C:\Program Files\Primavera\Project Management\PM.ini cannot be set to read-write status.


      Kindly let me know how to fix this problem.

          Please tell your IT Admin to fix as following:

          The following is a summary of the minimum system requirements Primavera 6.2.X requires for users to be able to access and run components of the
          software :

          Window Folders:
           C:\Windows\System32\
          dbexpsda30.dll
          dbexpint.dll
          dbexpoda30.dll
          DbExpPrC.dll
          dbexpsda.dll
          Read&Execute/Read permission for Borland DBExpress drivers
           C:\Program Files\Common Files\Borland Shared\DBExpress\DBXConnections.ini
          C:\Program Files\Common Files\Borland Shared\DBExpress\DBXDrivers.ini
          Read&Execute/Read/Write permissions to create and modify database alias connections
           C:\Program Files\Primavera
          Read&Execute\Read permission to access files needed to run applications
           C:\Program Files\Primavera\Project Management\pm.ini
          C:\Program Files\Primavera\Methodology Management\mm.ini
          Read&Execute/Read/Write permission to access the ini file - required to log into the applications
           C:\Program Files\Common Files\Primavera Common
          Read&Execute/Read permission to access files needed to run applications
           C:\Program Files\Common Files\Primavera Common\Java\BREBootstrap.xml
          Read&Execute/Read/Write permission to change connection parameters for Claim Digger or API
          (If user does not have WRITE access the Database Configuration Setup utility (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Primavera
          Common\Java\dbconfig.cmd) for claim digger / API DOES connect to the database and read the configurations and will create a new configuration if
          entered, but displays error "error writing to bootstrap file" and BREBootstrap.xml file will not be updated with the proper database connection information.
           Output directory for File > Export , Job Services output files and Log output files
          Read&Execute/Read/Write to create and write output files

          Registry Keys:
           HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Borland
          READ
           HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Primavera
          READ
          Note: For the functions Claimdigger, Update Baselines, and Schedule Comparisons the key is opened in Read/Write/Delete mode.
           HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Primavera\Databases\[MM/PM]\Aliases
          NOTE: By default, users have FULL CONTROL to their HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE registry keys
          If a user does not have FULL CONTROL permission to these keys, when they create a new alias it will be stored under
          HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Primavera\Databases\[MM/PM]\Aliases and will be displayed and available to ONLY the user account on the
          workstation that created the alias.
          If user does have FULL CONTROL permission to to these keys, when they create a new alias it will be stored
          under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Primavera\Databases\[MM/PM]\Aliases and will be displayed and available to ALL user accounts on the
          workstation.
