    Had the same issue.

    Note 2029321 helped resolve the issue. We replaced the BCM-4.0.dll file as per the note

    I would like to confirm that the workaround mentioned by Ellis works fine!

    Workaround

    Replace the BCM-4.0 .dll under LINK_DIR/bin folder of data services with BCM-4.0.dll under BOE installed location “C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64”

    Hello Rub,

    We have tried the following DS versions

    DS 4.0 SP1 (x86)

    DS 4.1 SP2 (x86)

    DS 4.2 SP2 (x86)

    with

    BI 4.1 SP03 Patch 01

    and we get the same error with you.

    Did you open a ticket to SAP about this?

    Thanks,

    Ilias

      Hello Ilias,

      yes, we opened it and they told me this:

      Hello Rubén,

      Thanks for the confirmation that without the patch the installation

      works - this is as we expected it. Your observations on the

      combinations you were trying have been noted.

      Once the patch level hass been approved (post-QA etc) then the KNBA

      will be adjusted appropriately to reflect any issues and/or bugs that

      might be discovered in QA and fixes applied.



      Regards

      Rubén

    Hello Rubén,

    Thanks for the information & prompt reply. Some more interesting information about the behavior we 're getting. We 've tested the x64 bit client for DS 4.2 SP2 and it works fine with BI 4.1 SP03 FP01. Now we're installing BI SP03 FP02 and we 'll try again the x86 DS client.

    I will keep you informed.

    Kind regards,

    Ilias
