Upgrading from BOBJ Enterprise XI 3.1 to SBOP BI Platform 4.2 for visual studio applications

Hi,

My company recently updated their server from BOBJ Enterprise XI 3.1 to SBOP BI Platform 4.2.

I've been tasked with updating some applications which ran with the older server to use the new server (hopefully what I'm saying makes some sort of sense).

I've downloaded and installed the SBOP BI PLATFORM 4.2 SP02 ENTER .NET SDK RUNTIME WINDOWS package on my client machine, to access the new dlls for the server.

When trying to update the dlls that my visual studio applications require, I've found that there is no "CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Desktop.Report" dll (which existed in the .net runtime for the BOBJ Enterprise XI 3.1 installation).

Has the report model changed since BOBJ Enterprise XI 3.1?

If so, is there an API reference, or some examples that could show me how to update my applications so that they can use the same functionality as before (loading and scheduling reports on the server)?

I've been searching forums and documentation for about half a day without any success, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

    I have now found the dll I was looking for.

    I'm not sure with package I downloaded, but the .zip file is called:

    BIPSDKRT4202_0-80000749

    The dll is installed in the following directory:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64\dotnet

    At least, I believe that's the correct info.

    It does puzzle me as to why a folder called win64_x64 would be on the x86 side of program files, though.

    Hello Steven,

    If you have access to other BI 4.2 machines in your company that contain this missing DLL file :

    You could copy the DLL file from one of them to your own machine.

    Best regards,
