How to update SAP BusinessObjects BI platform .NET SDK Redistributable 4.2 SP5 to 4.2 SP8 silently

83 Views Last edit Dec 21, 2020 at 02:10 AM 2 rev

I have SAP BusinessObjects BI platform .NET SDK Redistributable 4.2 SP5 installed in my system.

Now I am trying to update it with the 4.2 SP8 version. When I am doing it manually it is working fine.

But I have to do it through the silent installation process.


When I am uninstalling the older version and executing the below command it is installing the newer version silently.

setup.exe -q -r response.ini


But when the older version is present then it is not working. It is not giving any error but nothing is happening.

I have tried the things mentioned in the below article. But here nothing is mentioned about updating. Here they mainly discussed about fresh installation, repairing, and modifying features.

I also have tried to record the action using -w option in the response file. But there is no change in the response file than normal installation.
