SAP BI 4 Life Cycle Manager Configuration

Hi All,

Great to see that Life Cycle Manager is now bundled with the SAP BI 4 platform.

I have been trying to configure the tool via the Administration Options based on the settings I know have worked in several Life Cycle Manager installations I have done on XI 3.1.

Has anything changed with the XI 4 configuration because no matter what I try I keep receiving the following error when I try to launch the Version Management System?

com.businessobjects.vms.VMSException: com.businessobjects.vms.VMSException: com.businessobjects.vms.VMSException: com.businessobjects.vms.VMSException: Cannot run program "E:\BOXI4\SAP": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

I have looked at the Life Cycle Manager 4 manual and nothing seems to have changed configuration wise there either?

Can anyone explain why this may not be working? Any pointers?

Thanks - Gary

    for me the Path "E:\BOXI4\SAP" doesnt look correctly. It only points to a Direcotry instead of an executable.

    Check the path in a working XI 3.1 Environment to which exec it points. Search this exec in BI4 and point to Path to it.
