SAP BI 4.1 & OFFICE 2016


We are doing a POC for our ORG as they are upgrading to OFFICE 2016 mid next year. We are facing a challenge installing LIVE OFFICE for EXCEL 2016.

Read on the BO Forum that modifying registry keys it worked for OFFICE 2013.

We tried to do the same but it did not help. We made sure we only have 32 bit MS OFFICE 2016.

We know from the pam that it is not supported but we are trying to hack and make it work somehow.

The error we get is mentioned below.

MS OFFICE 32-bit or higher was not found.

Has anyone successfully installed live office for Excel 2016?

Or do we know if SAP plans to include support for OFFICE 2016 in any of the new service packs.
