Old School Essbase Add-In Install
Posted Aug 7, 2012 7:40 PM
Anyone familiar with getting the Excel Add-In (version 9.2) installed on a drive other than C:?
We don't use SmartView. Excel Add-In has been working fine with default C:\Hyperion path. We are moving to a new corporate image (Win 7.0) and we are no longer allowed to write to the C: drive.
Have to install on D: Seems that the Excel Add-In doesn't like this. No error message, but nothing gets installed. Our client install exe is dated 8/29/2006.
I read Tim Tow's blog on installing the Add-In on Win 7.0, but after my install I get 1) No Essbase/bin director loaded 2) No environment variables. No ARBORPATH system variable gets set.
Anyone have a suggestion?? Is insisting on a C:\Hyperion install a "feature" of the Add-In circa 2006?
