When attempting to export a project to Primavera XML, the following error occurs.

Export failed. See log for details.
Log file: C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\TCDN.xmlExportLog.txt

Note: The log file is not generated.

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

  1. Configure the P6 database connection alias and specify the SQLite file location as a remote UNC path (e.g. \\{host name}\xxxxx\PPMDBSQLite.db).   
    Note: The SQLite file is stored on a remote network drive.
  2. Login to P6 Professional after selecting this alias.
  3. Exporting any project to Primavera XML fails and shows the noted error.
