Applet Initialization error in BI Launchpad

I am facing applet initialization error while launching Web Intelligence in BI Launchpad (SAP BO version 4.1 SP 5).

I have checked in following ways but in vain:

1. Restarted web intelligence processing server.

2. Cleared browser cache. Added site in trusted authentication sites.

3. Cleared %temp% directory on machine.

4. Access rights are appropriate. In fact, user was able to do that before 3-4 days.

5. Java version installed on machine is version 8 Update 121.

I have checked in all the above ways but its still giving the same error.

Please help me in this issue!!

Thanks in advance..

  • Hi,

    Do you have multiple versions of Java installed?.

    Go to Programs>> Java control Panel>> under View java version and select the latest version you have installed.

    It also depends on whether you installed 64 or 32 bit. Try installing 32 bit and update the Java properties.

    Make sure that you have installed 32 bit JAVA.

    In the JAVA control panel, add the BI launchpad URL to exceptions list.

    Reset your browser once and check.

    If issue persists, go to Manage add ons of your browser and make sure that the JAVA plugin is enabled.

    This should resolve the issue.

    • Hi,

      Sorry for the late reply. I hope this is resolved.

      If not, as mentioned previously check if the JAVA plugin is enabled in the manage add-ons of the browser.
      Reset the browser once and check.

      When ever you face this issue below are the steps you should check always :

      -NO multiple versions of JAVA.
      -32 bit JAVA to be installed.
      -Launchpad URL to be added to the exceptions list in JAVA control panel.
      -From the JAVA control panel delete the temporary files(General tab -> settings).
      -Set the security level to High.
      -In browser, make sure the JAVA plugin is enabled.
      -Reset the browser(Internet options -> Advanced -> Reset. Don't check delete personal items).

      Above are the only steps to be checked.
