SAP BPC Add-in Vs IBP Add-in

Hi All,

Is anybody aware of any potential conflicts for users who already have BPC add-in installed and then try to install SAP IBP Add-in.

    Hi Vijay,

    I am not aware of any reported conflicts at the moment, it should work without issues, assuming that you have the EPM add-in installed with the same SP as the BCP and IBP (that uses SP 28 in 1708 version). You just have to use the sbs (side-by-side) installer on that case.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Ivan,

      We are struggling with BPC after installing the IBP add-in using SBS.

      The EPM context tool bar is disappearing if we install the IBP add in over the BPC.

      We are on the latest EPM version and IBP 1708 excel add in.

      Are you ware of any particular setting missing?

    Hi Ivan,

    We were able to successfully install IBP add-in but when creating a connection, we are seeing the attached error. Can you please help if you have seen such an error earlier. Seems something to do FPMXLClient Dll file. I tried to follow the SAP note 2408870 but the user machines do not have the folder as mentioned in the note. Thus could not implement the solution provided in the note.

    Do you have any idea on the issue?

    • Hi Vijay,

      Please make sure you are using the same SP version on your BPC and IBP plugins. Current version of IBP add-in (1708 3.0) uses EPM SP28. Is that the same as your BPC installation?

      Best regards,
