I want to install IBP ADDIn. I allready have installed BO Analysis 2.4 Patch 2 sucessfully. When I try to install after that IBP, I get this Error Message: ibp-fehlermeldung.png.

Do you have any idea, how i can install IBP?

    Hi Jochen,

    SAP has a solution for this problem. Please follow the below steps mentioned, along with the Prerequisite requirements attached in the Doc.


    The error is due to that there is already another EPM based add-in installed on the same PC.
    For example, SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization, Demand planning add-in for Microsoft Excel.


    For the PC/computer with multiple EPM based Add-ins, you have to install the EPM Add-in itself as a standalone Add-in instead of a biult-in Add-in with other products.
    Afterwards you have to install the side-by-side version of IBP Excel Add-in.
    Please find out which IBP version is compatible with which EPM version in SAP Note 2135948.

    Also, please check below note for simple steps of installation along with screen shots.2135948-1.jpg2135948-2.jpg2135948-3.jpg2135948-4.jpg2135948-5.jpg2135948-6.jpg2135948-7.jpg

    Hope this will resolve you issue with Installation.

    Thank you

    Hello Jochen, 2.4 is a couple releases back; could you try upgrading to 2.5 or 2.6?
