  3. you have mentioned that its not for commercial use kindly explain, i want to use it to plan my projects for the industry does it will help

    1. Yes, you can free to use without any doubt. This is genuine Primavera P6 copy that you have downloaded from Official Oracle website.
      This offers a standalone installation which work on a single machine(computer,laptop) but if your origination needs to add multi-users like server based application then commercial license is required.
      Mostly big firms use commercial primavera p6 license then they give different privilege to different users to make updates in programs. But in standalone only one user/admin can be entertained.
      Hope it helps…..

  4. when I left the P6 program and try to log in again, it remind me all the time “Invalid login name or password. Please try again or choose Cancel to exit the application.” i am quite sure the user name and passwords is “admin”~~

      1. thanks for the share but i cant run the program, it says “You are not authorized to run the application. Please contact your administrator.” any suggestions?

        1. I hope you have Administrative rights to install a program or any software at your computer/laptop. If so then you need to take permission or Right Click to run as an administrator.
          Still, any issue, ping me and I will try to resolve via team viewer or any desk remotely.

    1. Well in this you may not have admin privileges for your machine. You must have admin privileges to start the Oracle database. If you have all this already then Restart your Oracle Database. See where you have installed. Sometimes restarting the machine helps. If the issue still persists, write me back. I am glad to help you.

    Dear Team Project / Author,
    Thank you very much for the detailed step by step installation guide. You guys have done a good job and I appreciate it highly. It is a relief to have a stand alone P6 on my machine.

  9. Just to be clear, Primavera P6 is not free as you state in your tutorial. When user’s download the software, they much check and agree to use the software only for 30 days. As awareness to everyone, please read Oracle’s terms and ensure you know what you are agreeing to.

  10. Thank for this write-up and finally, I got Primavera P6 Downloaded & Installed like an expert. Damn easy now

  11. It’s a walk on the park really was not expecting that easy. Video effort is great. Please write more about tricks if you can manage.

  12. this is very helpful
    but i wanted to ask if this is cracked version?
    2nd question is it a trial version?

  13. this is very helpful
    but i wanted to ask if this is a trial version and will expire in 14 days or 1 month?

    1. Thank you, Salman, It is a trial version and according to Oracle terms and conditions that you have accepted while downloading is that you can use it for free and you need to buy after 30 days. Although it will not expire or send you any notification.

  14. It is just a walk in the park. I thought only programmers or the Database experts can do. Thank you for your insight on Primavera P6. Will share with others too.
