Environment

StruxureWare Building Operation 1.5 and newer

Cause

Attempting to log into WorkStation for Project and you either do not have the Project Configuration Server installed or the Project Configuration Server is not running.

Resolution

  1. Reboot the machine.
  2. Check that the Project Configuration server service is running. 

Note: One other possibility is that you have a different instance of Projects Configuration server already running from a concurrent installation. (Example: You are trying to log into Projects 1.8.1 but you already have Projects server 1.7.1 running). This will cause a Failed to establish a connection with the server error.
