WebI runtime requirements



If I try to create a new WebI report or to modify one it loads Java to call the report design panel. It tries to install Java. This causes an error message, because users don't have administrative rights on their machines. So far (not) so good...

However JDK 1.5.x is already installed on the clients. This matches to requirements in platforms.pdf. Browser is also configured to use this runtime environment.

What do I need to do to force client browser to use existing java environment and not to download and install from BOE


fresh new install of BOE 3.0

win 2003 standard SP2

IE 6.0 SP2

Any idea?

    Hi Thorsten,

    Please try to post this to the admin or general forum, I think you would get a better response there to this issue.

      My guess would be java runtime environment is installed, but not the applet.

      Have that installed on your client pc's for the user or give them the right to install java applets.

      Good luck,
