Installing software on BI Platform is extremely slow

I'm trying to install software on my BI platform (this time its the Design Studio Add-On) but it happens with all software I try to install - it says "Installing" for about 30-45 minutes - then it finally launches the setup program and asks me for Language, etc.

Is it supposed to take this long?  Should I be doing something before installing new add-ons?

Thanks!

    Hi Kelly,

    Are you Installing Only Design Studio or ALL BI software ( i.e. IDT, WEBi Rich..etc )?

    What is your System Configuration? ( if you are only installing Design Studio. ), Design Studio took around hardly 10 minutes it self, when i was Installing in my work PC ( PC has 16 GB RAM with 256 SSD).

    HI Shane,

    As per the best practices when you are installing any BI Product/Patches/Support Pack then make the changes using KBA : 1952120 - SAP BusinessObjects (XI 3.1 and BI 4.0) Installation pre-requisites

    This will surely reduce the time. Also Ensure you have sufficient hardware resources available on the system.

    Hope it will help.

    Regards,

    Mahak
