Installing SAP Crystal Dashboard 2016 on Windows 7

Hello,

I am trying to install SAP Crystal Dashboards 2016 on Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 Bit, But during installation I get critical failure for windows version.

This happens although it mentions that the minimum requirement is Windows 7 SP1.

What can I do?

I can't upgrade to Windows 10 because I have a software that works only on Windows 7.

    Amit - you could ask your IT department to give you a Windows 10 VM image; that is what I do when software doesn't work on Windows 7

    Hi Amit,

    Try running the setup as administrator.Also turn Off the Anti virus and User account control settings you can set to never notify.

    Rename the "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\setup.exe" to "setup.exe.old" and re-run the installer.

    Let me know if tha works.

    Regards,

    Amit
