SAP BO 4.1 SP8 installation modify first BO installation date in control panel

Hi All,

I've recetly installed SAP BO 4.1 SP8 on our POC and DEV (2 serves) env. and noticed that in all those servers the original SAP BO version installed (e.g. SAP BO 4.0 SP04) date has been updated with the same date as the 4.1 SP08.

See screenshot below.

Is it SP08 suppose to modify original installation??! If so, what has been modified/updated?

    The base (first) install will get updated because the latest service pack looks at what options have been installed within base. This is why you can actually go back am removed SP7 Patch 3 and SP7 without having your over all install effected. All SP are now contains SP from previous, SP8 it is commutative.
