I am trying to install the trial version of Crystal dashboards on Windows 10 Pro. I cannot get it to install properly and get following error:

Error: Module C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\XcelsiusExtension.dll failed to register Refer SCN link and SAP Notes for DFO related Errors
Contact system administrator for other errors

I genuinely have no idea how to tackle the problem. The program was running on a Windows 10 Pro on another machine and now refuses to install properly on a new Lenovo Ideapad. Could yo please help me. i want to make sure that the program runs before i buy it for what must now be the 8th time in 12 years.

have you checked the PAM for compatibility of Windows Pro and dashboard version which you want to install.

Thank you for question. I cannot access the PAM, since it is behind a login. A colleague is running the Trial version without a problem on similar configuration. I have an older version of SAP Presentation Design that does not work with latest Office. Is there a way you can get me the PAM?

What is the version you are installing?
