Is windows 10 a supported OS for Xcelsius BI 4? I sure that Office 2016 is supported. Maybe BI 4.2 supports it. You need to check the PAM to see.

Here is a link for BI 4.1. I found a link for BI 4.2, but it requires a login. Also a quick look and Office 2016 is supported for BI 4.2 SP3.

If it helps, I'm using 4.1 client tools, inc SAP Business Objects Dashboards (aka xcelsius) on Windows 10, with Office 2010 with no issues.

I recently moved from a Windows 7 machine to Windows 10 and when installing Xcelsius 4.1 SP 7, I had to revert to Office 2013 to get through the installation process.

Supposedly, there are workarounds that can get you through the installation such as creating dummy excel files then using later office versions, but I had no luck with any of them.

When opening XLF files, I get a server busy popup and have to switch to excel before my worksheet will load, but once I do that it seems to work fine.
