We are facing this issue when updating BI from 4.0 SP5 to 4.1 SP7 Patch 1 on Windows 2008 R2 SP 1 OS.

Any suggestions are really appreciated.

And also we are planning to update to SP7 Patch 4. Is that going to cause any issue?

      Hello Everyone,

      I found the solution here:

      You cannot do a repair once you get this issue, it will try to make you continue from the same spot it stopped but it won't work.

      You need to open the "InstallManifest.SQLite" file that is located inside the InstallData folder under SAP BusinessObjects folder.

      Once you open browse this database, go to "DUTransaction" table and search for any zero (0) value under "committed" column and change it to 1.

      save the database and then try to install again.
