CNXSRV.dll missing in BO 4.0 designer.exe does not start

Hi,

I installed BO 4.0 in windows server 2008 and everything including information design tool, webi, cmc is working but the Universe design tool(designer.exe). from some of the previous post i thought it was an issue with its drivers being 64 bit which i changed to 32 bit and still have same issue. Please help its been a while now and no result.

this is the error.

The program cant start because cnxsrv.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.

I did try reinstalling it once but results were same. Universe design tool is not working and everything else is working fine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Users of BOE 4.0 current should all have a support contract. please log a case in SMP and a Rep will contact you to discuss the issue.

    I had same issue but also had another desktop where universe designer was working ok. I copied this dll and also rptdisp.dll from the working machine to,

    C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\wind32_x86

    i don't why these dlls were copied their by installer - it maybe a corrupt download or a patch install failed.

    A bit of a workaround I know...
