  2. Export a project to Primavera XML format with the options Enable all project level layouts and Compress to Zip file selected.
  3. When job completes, click the Download button in the Job Status or View Service Status window.
  4. The download completes, but the file's size is smaller than it should be.
  5. Attempt to import the file back into P6.
  6. View the reported error.
