Navisworks 2012 and Primavera

Hi all,


I'm having trouble getting the link to work using Timeliner. Primavera Webservices (P6 W7) is setup according to the document by Autodesk. But I have no luck connecting from another machine. The Primavera server is on a win xp 32 and my machine is a w7 64 with navisworks 2012 64bit. Next step for us is to install navis onto the Primavera machine...

But anyone having the same issue or got it working? Error message is "An error was discovered processing the <wsse:smileyfrustrated:ecurity> header" when trying to connect.

This sounds like an error on the Primavera side of the equation. Have you tried connecting with a different Primavera user and password? Have you validated that you can connect to the Primavera database outside of Navisworks?


Thank you for participating in our community!

Hi david,


It took some time, but I have tested several things. This is the link to some free files from Privavera to test the webconnection outside of Navisworks (.net including source code and java tool)

(Using (attachment size is too large for discussion group - approx 11mb download now)

I can also connect to Primavera using ODBC. The primavera is setup as SQL server, not Oracle 10g. So there does not seem to be an error on the Primavera side? Can it have something to do with secure connections? (hence the mesage) Although I can connect to the database outside of Navisworks without SSL.

We installed Navisworks on the Primavera machine (32bit version). Same result, same error message.

Has anyone successfully connected navisworks to Primavera Web Services?  If so, can you please help provide step by step instructions?  I have been trying for some time now and cannot get the connection to work.  I work for a large company and primavera is accessed via Citrix or the web.  I think there are some critical steps to configuring this that aren't in the standard user manual...  anyone have advice? 


PS today we tried the SDK method and that didn't seem to work either...
