Support roadmap of Bex & Web Dynpro Development Studio on Windows Vista


As far as I know, we still can't run Bex report and Web Dynpro development Studio on Windows Vista. Does SAP have any supporting roadmap plan for these two client software?

    I can´t say for webdynpro development but for BEx there´s Note 1040856 - Business Explorer 3.X on Windows Vista / Excel 2007:

    Microsoft Vista and Excel 2007 will be supported officially as of the next BW 3.5 Frontend patch. These patches should be available by the end of September 2007.

    • BW 3.5 for SAP GUI 6.40: Frontend Patch 13 (see Note 1006943)

    • BW 3.5 for SAP GUI 7.10: Frontend Patch 2 (see Note )

    Known problems:

    • Microsoft Vista and BEx Query Designer: See Note 1050174.

    • Microsoft Excel 2007, Vista and BEx Analyzer: See Note 1045244.

    • Excel 2007 and BW precalculation servers: You cannot use Microsoft Excel 2007.

      We're trying to run BEX 3.5 and 7.0 concurrently across Vista and XP operating systems. We're having a few issues (CLR fatal errors, macro errors), predominantly on XP.

      SAP has confirmed that they will be releasing patches early next week... anyone got any further information?
