EPMCellContextDocument not open the browser

Hello Experts,

I hope you can help me,Using epm 10.0 SP 26, when I double click on the EPMCellContextDocument function tries to open the browser but nothing happens. Checking the registry shows an error in GetAllDocument:

2016-11-14 15:38:36,355|ERROR|BPC10Connection|FPMXLClient.Connection.BPC10Connection.GetAllDocument|USER|||||1|Unable to deserialize XML body with root name 'root' and root namespace '' (for operation 'GetAllDocuments' and contract ('IDocumentService','http://tempuri.org/')) using XmlSerializer. Ensure that the type corresponding to the XML is added to the known types collection of the service.#

2016-11-14 15:38:36,374|ERROR|EVFunctions|FPMXLClient.TechnicalCategory.EPMCellContextDocument|USER|||||1|Object reference not set to an instance of an object.#

I have validated the following:
1) Connection with formatHTTP://servername:8000/SAP/BPC
2) Double click activated
3) Other functions operate well as EPMDocumentList

Please let me know if there is anything else that could cause the error.

Regards,

    Please show the formula with EPMCellContextDocument in the Excel cell!

    =EPMCellContextDocument(1;D16;)

    =EPMCellContextDocument(2;D16;)

    D16 refers to a cell within a simple report

    It's a well known incompatibility between EPM Addin and FireFox!

    Please read at the end: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/07/06/unable-to-open-epm-add-in-from-bpc-web-client/

    Try EPM SP27

    Vadim, thanks for the instruction

    I probe with ie11, following step by step, but I had no results.
    installed epm27, this changed the button showing as result "invalid pointer"

    I reinstalled epm26
    Capturing the sessions with vider I found that the server returns error 401-Unauthorized when I press the button.

    What permissions does bpc need in IIS to work properly?

    This seems to be a bug in BPC MS 10.1 (it seems to work fine with BPC MS 10) and it's currently under investigation with the BPC dev team.

    If you encounter this issue please contact SAP Product Support for further investigation.
