Launch Query Designer not working in AFO 1.4.8

We had version 1.4.5 of Analysis for office and the Launch Query Designer was working.

We have Bex Query Designer 7.3 support package 3 revsion 699.

We now installed AFO 1.4.8 to get some other bugs fixed and now we can't open the Query Designer. The line is greyed out.

What happened?

    Hi Patty,

    Check the option decribed on the SAP note 1921901 and use the setting DataSource/IgnoreQueryDesignerVersionCheck to open the query designer.

    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAP\AdvancedAnalysis\Settings\DataSource\ and add String Value IgnoreQueryDesignerVersionCheck applying value True.

    Thanks,
    Diego Ferrary

    Hi Patty Bohline,


    This issue seems to be related with the installation.
    You probably made an upgrade from the version 1.3.x to the version 1.4.x without unistall the AO. Once you upgrade from 1.3.x to 1.4.x the Analysis for Office you will not receive the features from 1.4.


    My suggestion is to unistall the entire AO and install again the latest version of 1.4.


    Kind regards,
