"Unable to locate BOE platform components" when launching DS designer

Hi Dear Experts,

I have some troubles with DataServices Designer:

It's new installation:

SAP BI 4.1 sp6 patch 4 - server1

SAP DS 4.2 sp5 patch 2 - server2

BI full+APS+DS Management console - on server 1.

Jobserver+access server (ds designer) - on server 2.

I checked compatibility of BI+FIM from sapnote 1740516, it's fine.

also I tried to replace BCM-4.0.dll (from sapnote 2029321), doesn't help.

In CMC DataServices repository configured, connection is OK.

Access and Job Servers is configured.

I don't know what to do, please help me.

Thanks...

    Hi Dear Experts,

    Problem is solved.

    I tried to install DS server on windows 2008 R2, Designer opened fine.

    After installaiton on win2008 I noticed that during installation of DS server also installed Visual Studio C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) 8.0.6100.

    I check on Windows 2012 r2(my problem server), there during installation also installed only Visual Studio C++ 2008 (not 2005).

    I install Visual Studio C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) 8.0.6100 on Windows 2012 r2 - designer doesn't wokr.


    Then I unninstall all DS components, pre install Visual Studio C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) 8.0.6100 and then run installation DS server again. After installation designer runs fine!!!

    It's looking like bug for Windows 2012 r2,

    I read Installation guide, there:

    "Microsoft C++ redistributable components will be installed automatically if they are not found"

    but for Windows 2012 r2 Microsoft C++ redistributable components is not installed automatically.

    This is a common problem, due to invalid port# or firewall issues. Try Google for a solution. Or start from here:

    Hi

    Kindly check the user with which you are trying to access the designer has access on BOE install dir, I have also noticed some time space issues on installation directory shows similar BOE error.

    I have the same issue on my end, also I click OK to this error and then I have the Logon screen, but the Logon button is grade out, besides there is not repositories listed even though I have Admin user and all privileges to see the repositories.

    Hi Daulet

    Was the Designer installed along with the SAP BODS installation or you installed it separately on the server?
