Continuing from my previous blog, Caboodle – Part 9 – Crystal Reports 2011 & Enterprise Install

 

Here I download and install the BOBJ4 Dashboard, aka Xcelsius.

Currently on SP2 Patch 3, however, I will use the SP2 for a new installation, here.

Am quite happy to say that this was a seamless installation.

Adobe Flash Player and Excel are important prerequisites, which I already had installed (Flash v10, and Excel v2010).

Download

For a new instalaltion, from the SMP

Software Downloads->BusinessObjects Downloads->Browse the SAP  BusinessObjects Portfolio->Installation and Upgrade->SBOP DASHBOARDS (XCELSIUS)->SBOP DASHBOARDS 4.0->Installation and  Upgrade->WINDOWS

 

or if you are upgrading from a previous version, from the SMP

Software Downloads->BusinessObjects Downloads->Browse the SAP  BusinessObjects Portfolio->Support Packages and Patches->SBOP  DASHBOARDS (XCELSIUS)->SBOP DASHBOARDS 4.0->Comprised Software Component Versions->SBOP DASHBOARDS 4.0->Windows Server on IA32 32bit


Install

After extracting the downloaded file/object “51041024”, I ran the “setup.exe”, found in the directory

Off it goes

 

10 minutes later

 

“Finish”

 

On the desktop, two new icons

 

A look at Windows Start->All Programs

 

A look in Windows Control Panel->Programs and Features

 

That’s it. All nicely installed

 

Test

Some Live Office message. Please read elsewhere for more information.

Finally to the Dashboard initial screen

 

All done.
