Help with connections

Hi,

I am working on BO XI 3.1 client. I keep getting an error when I try to create a connection and when I test an existing connection.

Here is the error I am getting:

CS: DBDriver failed to load : C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\dbd_sap.dll (The specified procedure could not be found.)

I get this error trying to connect to any type of database. the only thing that changes in the error is the dll from which I am trying to connect. For example, the above error is when I try to connect to an SAP data source. When I try to connect to Microsoft Access I get this error:

CS: DBDriver failed to load : C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\dbd_wodbc3.dll (The specified procedure could not be found.)

The only difference is the dll.

I have installed BO XI 3.1 Client tools on my PC with service pack 2 and fix pack 2.7.

I don't get these errors on the BO server. Can anyone help.

Thank you in advance

    When you installed the client tools, did you include all the needed database drivers?

      I have seen a reference about this issue and it seems that something broke your client installation.

      I would recommend to uninstall all BOBJ products (incl. XCelsius and CR Designer) from your client and install the BO Client again. Make sure that if you install any additional products (like CR Designer) you are installking the same version (eg. if you have the BO XI 3.1 CLients Tools with SP2 you have to install CR Designer 2008 with SP2).

      Make also sure that the BOBJ integration Kit is installed also on your client. Otherwise you will not be able to create universes against SAP BW sources.

    In order to be able to access SAP BW sources you have to install the BOBJ int.Kit for SAP solutions on your client also (incl. SP2 and FP 2.7)
