How to Upgrade a P6 Standalone Oracle XE Database to a New SQLite Standalone Database (Doc ID 2190570.1)

Last updated on JUNE 09, 2023

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Professional Project Management - Version and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document explains how to upgrade from P6 on an Oracle XE 32-bit database to version 15.1 and later on a new SQLite Standalone Database.  32-bit Oracle XE 10g is not compatible with the 64-bit versions of P6 Professional release 15.1 and later.  In addition, Oracle XE (any 32-bit or 64-bit version) is not officially supported with P6 Professional releases 18 and later.  For further details see the Tested Configurations document for the desired P6 release version:

  1. Browse to the Primavera P6 Professional product documentation page.
  2. Select the desired release version.
  3. Navigate to Planning, Installing, and Upgrading on the left.
  4. Click the link under What configurations work for an on-premises server deployment?
  5. Review the Client section.

Oracle Support will continue to support P6 if it's used with an untested 64-bit Oracle XE database platform, however if an issue is encountered in such an environment and we're able to trace the cause to the use of that non-tested configuration, we may request changing the affected environment to comply with this document as a resolution.  Oracle recommends testing unsupported configurations in a development environment before implementing them in a production environment.

Oracle XE is not supported with multi-user P6 Professional installations or with the P6 Enterprise (EPPM) product.
