Unable to locate Business View Manager in CR Server 2011


I am trying to figure out how to access the business view manager in Crystal Reports 2011. I need to access the BVM in order to edit/delete dynamic parameters which show up under "Repository Items" in my development software (CR 2011). I am able to create and edit reports using dynamic parameters but the edit/delete button is greyed out in development mode and I can’t edit or delete any of the dynamic cascading prompts. I need to make these changes in the BVM.

I log on to the CR server as an administrator and check out the Central Management Console (CVM) but do not see the BVM anywhere. I checked for the generic string *bvm*.exe in windows explorer hoping to install it in case it was not installed yet. I don't see this executable file anywhere in the server files.

Any help on how I can access the BVM would be MUCH MUCH appreciated! My development work is on hold until I figure out how to successfully edit/delete all the dynamic parameters I created. Thanks in advance!
