Primavera P6 error when import Microsoft Project XML / Run Update Baseline, Claim Digger

When we import Microsoft Project XML file to Primavera P6 / Run Update Baseline / Claim Digger, an error could appear with Event code: CNFFC- Message: Could not find file \bin\java.exe.

Cause:

These are scenarios which can cause above error:

  • There is no java.exe file in the \Primavera Common\]ava\jvm\bin directory
  • The JAVA_HOME variable is set to an incorrect path or non-existing JRE
  • A compatibility issue exists between P6 Professional and the installed version of Java

Fix:

A version of the JRE (that is compatible with the version of P6 being used) must be installed, and the JAVA_HOME environment variable must be set properly.

  1. A Java JRE must be installed. It will located in a path similar to “C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_131”
  2. Copy the full path. For example: “C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_131”
  3. Click the Start menu. Type “Environment…” and click on “Edit the system environment variables”
