Post subject: BO 6.5 on Windows 7

Working in a mostly Cognos shop; however, we have some users still using BO 6.5. The organisation as a whole is deploying Windows 7 to users and servers.

Can anyone tell me if BO 6.5 works on Windows 7? Or do we need to upgrade the BO version?

It's not listed as compatible but that doesn't mean it won't work.
BO6.5 first came out back end of 2004 - if you have a lot of Deski reports but don't want to put effort into converting them to Webi reports then upgrade to XI3.1 to guarantee compatibility.

BusinessObjects - versions 3, 4, 5, 6, XI, XIr2, XI3.1, 4.1, SAP Integration
Data Warehousing, SQL Server 2000/2005/2008/2012 (inc. SSIS, SSRS, etc), Oracle 7.3-11g, Netezza, Sybase, Cognos
