Hi experts,

    it seems that the user that you use to acces is not registered in BPC, please check if the user is registered in the admin console.

    Kind regards

      I have found solution, PC_MS folder was copied from another instance and web.config file was problematic.

      		<!-- base locations of servers -->
      		<add key="AppServer_URL" value="http://XXX/osoft/app"/>
      		<add key="AppServer_AUTH" value="1"/><add key="UserID" value="***"/><add key="UserPassword" value="***"/></appSettings>
