Summary: Project Server events are handled by the application servers in the farm. A Windows NT service called Microsoft Project Server Eventing fires the event handlers. This service is responsible for locating, loading, and running the appropriate third-party event handlers. If the Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service is unavailable, then no registered event handlers can be executed.
Cause: Possible causes include the following:
The Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service is not started and running.
The Windows SharePoint Services Timer service periodically checks whether the Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service is running, and attempts to start it if they are necessary.
The Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service uses the same credentials as the Service Application for the Project Server Interface application. This means that if those credentials are invalid (for example the password has expired), this event may occur.
Possible resolutions include the following:
If it is stopped, restart the Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service.
If the Microsoft Project Server Eventing Service is not stopped, verify that the credentials for the account that is used by this service are valid and then restart the service.
