BI4.1 BusinessObjects Explorer Update Installation

The BI4.1 BusinessObjects Explorer installation is still separate from the platform.  For the steps below I did an “in-place” upgrade from BI4 to BI4.1 for Explorer.

After downloading from Service Marketplace, I extract the files:


Then I get a message about a suppressed reboot.


I reboot.


All is good so I click Next.


I accept the license agreement.


Click Next


Enter the existing CMS information and logon as Administrator.


Click Next.  Then the long wait begins (about an hour or so) while it installs.


Success!  Ready to go exploring.
