          i had problems installing it directly from SAP Hana studio. l had to use the

          Alternative and it worked for me:

          you can download the plugin as a zip file and follow the installation instructions inside:  

          Installation Instructions is in the file called install.txt:

          Download and unzip the from the HANA Answers website at


          In SAP HANA Studio:

              Click on Help->Install New Software

              Click on “Add” next to the “Work with” input box

          Select “Local…” and open the folder where you extracted the zip file

          Click the “OK” button and complete the wizard

          That’s all! Now from SAP HANA Studio, highlight some text and press F10 or click the SAP HANA Answers button in the toolbar.
