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).
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
After extracting the downloaded file/object “51041024”, I ran the “setup.exe”, found in the directory
I kept the default setup language
All prerequisites are good
I now know, because I already have BOBJ4 installed, the destination folder is disabled
User Info and Keycode stuff
I kept the defaulted language pack
“Custom” for demonstration purposes
“Disk Costing” for demonstration purposes
I selected the all components
Now installation is ready
Off it goes
10 minutes later
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
I started the Dashboard Design program from the desktop
Some Live Office message. Please read elsewhere for more information.
Finally to the Dashboard initial screen
