If I remember well, when you try to install SAP BI 4.x client tools on a laptop where the XI 3.1 client tools are already installed you are prompted

* to upgrade and replace the former XI 3.1 clients tools by the new 4.x new
* to perform a side by side install. In this case, you will be able to manage BO XI 3.1 and BI 4.x client tools

regards

Varsha,

You can install clients tools from both versions on same machine. There won't be any issue as installation directories will be different for both. XI .wid files won't open in BI4.

I hope you find this info useful.

I have slightly different question..Quick help is appreciated.

I am using Mac Book air with good configuration and want to Install Business objects 4.1 version. Does BO support installation on MAC ? If yes, then what software i need to install. In the software catalog, I can see different category of BO 4.1 softwares like software for Linux/Windows but i don't see anything software for Mac.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Satish

I dont know where exactly to post this question. But we have installed SBOP BI PLATFORM 4.1 SP04 CLIENT TOOLS WINDOWS (32B) but dashboards are not part of it. I tried to find the installer for the dashboard but wasnt successful. Can you walk me through it and tell me where to download it? I tried to look for it on SAP website but couldnt really locate the place. Thanks in advance.

Dashboard (aka Xcelsius) is a separated product/licence/key. You can download it from the sap support portal regarding your package. Maybe you can ask this question at your SAP sales guy if you haven't access

Thanks for your answer. I realized tat but the SAP website is a little confusing. I looked for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards under their SAP Service Marketplace but couldnt find the products. Any clue?!

Its under "D"... If you can't find it, you probably don't have the right to download it.
