BW Modeling tools on BW 7.5 no Hana

Hello Experts,

I am working on BW 7.5 not powered by HANA, the problem that I am facing it’s that I´m trying to enable remote access to Queries to a SAP BI server, the access was granted from the Query Designer that is no longer available.

I’m trying to setup the SAP BW Modeling Tools using Eclipse Neon Release (4.6.0) and installing the software from the SAP Development Tools Repository (, first installing the ABAP components and then the BW ones, the installation is successful, I´m able to login to my BW System but I am not able to search any object, I get the following message:

Error when getting results: BW Search is not Actived

I did some research and in fact the Search is disable in RSOSM but when I tried to enable it I get the following message:

BW Search not supported on non-SAP HANA systems

So the question is, is it possible to use the BW Modeling Tools in a BW Server not powered by HANA? Do I need to download a different version?

Thanks in advance.

For all your Problems implementing BW-MT please see the SAP First Guidance - SAP First Guidance – Implementing BW-MT as the new SAP BW Modeling Experience

BW-MT are only Supported on BW and/for HANA -

I know this response comes quite late but maybe this helps some other ppl who recently encountered the same problem (like myself).

You can activate the BW Search in TC RSOSM.
