    • folder: %USERPROFILE%\Analysis-config
    • folder: %USERPROFILE%\Analysis-workspace
  • Upgrade Issue from Design Studio 1.1 release with support package smaller than SP3 – solution is to uninstall the 1.1 release first and then make fresh install of 1.2 release.

      I reply shortly even I do not have a date for you – as of today, the CVOM SDK is working in test environment internally, but we cannot give a concrete date (still some clarifications are running). In best case some SP in 1.3 release, but it could be also postponed to next release (eg. 1.4)

    Hi Karol,

      Hi Elyae,

      all upgrade paths are supported for the Client, NW and BIP Add-On. If you want to apply DS 1.3 relase, you should make the upgrade on the server and then on the clients (as old clients will not work with the new server version). Of course standar backup procedures are recommended for any case…

      Regards, Karol
