Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

When attempting to click on the 'Download File' link within the Job Status window of P6 Professional for downloading an exported XML file (while connected to an EPPM database), no XML file download is initiated and instead clicking the link does nothing.

Note: This issue can occur with either a Primavera XML or Microsoft Project XML (MSP XML).

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

When attempting to click on the 'Download File' link within the Job Status window of P6 Professional for a XML export, a browser should launch to load P6 (web) for in initiating the XML file download. 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log into P6 Professional and open a Project.
  2. Select File > Export.
  3. Select any XML export type (Primavera XML or Microsoft Project XML [MSP XML]) and step through the wizard.  The XML export service initiates and the status can be viewed in the Job Status window.
  4. Select Tools > Job Status.
  5. Once the export job has completed, select Refresh and the download file link should be accessible.
  6. Try to click on 'Download File' link but note that nothing occurs and no browser page is initiated to launch P6 Web for downloading the XML file.
