"Unable to perform Client installation" on WinXP SP3


Hello everyone,

i have a strange situation here which i never had before.

I have installed the BOE XI 3.1 Client tools on a Windows XP SP3 Prof. Workstation without any Problems. I can launch the Applications and connect to my CMS.

No i want to install the SAP Integration Kit XI 3.1 Client tools to generate Universes on my BW (which works fine from the Server) but i cant. I get the following Errormessage:

"Unable to perform Client installation.

The installation is unable to proceed with a Client installation because neither Crystal Reports 2008 nor Universe Desginer were detected. To perform a Client installation, please install either Crystal Reports 2008 or Universe Designer."

I never had this. The only thing i could image is because the WinXP has SP3. In the Supported Platforms only SP2 is listed.

Any ideas ?

Thanks !
