SAP BPC 7.5 Client, Silent install but with progress bar, can it be done?

Hi All,
I need to uninstall the BPC 7 Client and then deploy 7.5 to around 250 users accross the country.
We have SCCM (SMS) in place so will be using that.
I have the uninstall of 7 sorted and I have the response file etc sorted for the silent install of 7.5 and the install runs, silently, no issue.
Is there a way though that one can "turn on" the progress bar during the install? So that users dont shutdown or disconnect in the 15min it takes the install to run.
By way of example, in the SAP Business objects enterprise client on can configure the Silent install so that although it never prompts the user for a reponse there is a progress bar that runs, indicating that there is an install in progress.
Thanks in advance,
Bryan

Hi Sebastian,
No worries, I am using a pop up countdown so the users have some idea on progress. Would love to know why the install runs for over 15min.
In the above case the uninstall was easy as we had deployed using MS AppV so it was just a case of deleting the advert in SCCM and the application was pulled from the users desktops.
For 7.5 I am using a vbscript with following to uninstall:
The install string pulled from the clients registry uninstall folder:
RunCommand Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{EC8753EF-EE78-48B5-A4D0-FBBD237B5D53}\setup.exe" & Chr(34) & " -runfromtemp -l0x0009UNINSTALL -removeonly"
We create a custom link, so this deletes it.
DeleteFile "c:\Users\Public\Desktop\SAP BPC 7.5.lnk"
You should be able to create something similar for 7.0 & 7.1
Hope that helps,
Bryan

  • Microsoft Excel slowing down and other problems when SAP BPC EPM Add-in is installed

    Hello,
    Our client is having some problems with Microsoft Excel (MS Office 2013) since the SAP BPC EPM Add-in was installed in their computers.
    They are suffering from Microsoft Excel slowing down, even when not connected to SAP BPC (10.0 NW version).
    For example, when opening two or more excel archives, not connected to SAP BPC, Microsoft Excel crashes and is restarted with errors.
    Have you experienced something similar in other installations?
    Thank you very much, and kind regards,

    In relation to the previous post , we have to emphasize that we have installed in ours PC's:
    MS Office 2010  14.0.7116.5000  32 bit,
    EPM add-on version 10.0  SP20  (10.0.0.8993).

  • CS3 install silent with progress bar ??

    Is it possible to install full CS3 with progress bar showing when the program silently installs?
    Install works fine using UI mode Silent and Full, but I can't find andy other options?
    My problem is when using the silent install of full CS3, shortcuts are available before the installation is finished. Since the installation takes time, users may click the shortcut before the installation is finished, resulting installation fails.
    Using the UI Mode Full is dependent on the users, and not accepted by company.
    -Odesti

    We too are in the same boat, we need a progress bar so that our users know that we are deploying the application.
    I've tried various random switch for the "UI mode" but none work. There must be others than silent or Full.

I'm using a MacBook Pro 10.6.7 version 2.66 GHz core 2 Duo 4GB 1067 MH. I'm not new at this. I re-installed FCP successfully. I trashed the preferences. Please help.

    Do you have any filters applied to your clips?
    This happened to me before, I accidently had applied a broadcast safe filter to a color matte that was black....
    I figured it out by duplicating my sequence and deleting items from my timeline 1 by 1 until I was able to export a reference movie.
    Anywho, export again, this time with "self contained" movie selected.
    Then try to import to Compressor.

    I've had the same issue and despite clearing the PRAM and powering on and off repeatedly this is what has (at least temporarily) resolved my issue:
    I've done this 3 times and sometimes it works right off the jump other times I've had to wait a bit and try again or power off and try again, once the start up screen is frozen hit Command : Option : Shift : Esc and a window should pop up "You restarted because of a problem..." from there you can go to your desktop. I haven't found an actual resolution to fix the problem but this does get you into your computer.
    Hope this helps!

    I'm running OS X 10.7.5 on my MacBook Air, but I cannot download Mavericks. I've tried downloading after a safe boot, but the progress bar and the download hung up. Any ideas?

    It can be a long download, so keep trying. My first download was at 3 am Cupertino time and took less than an hour. The second took close to three hours one evening.

    Hi - the new lightning connector on the iPhone 5 has an authentication chip so very few 3rd party manufacturers have come out with compatible devices - so I doubt that you will find a frame that works for both phones - however Apple has come out with 2 apapters - one is a cable and one is a direct 30 pin to lightning device - you would have to check out each frame to see if one of these might work - I looked at the Panasonic and it looks promising but I would check the return policy of anything that you buy in a case it doesn't work.

  • SAP BPC 5.1 "Client Software center" icons missing

    Hi,
    I had installed newly SAP BPC 5.1 (Single server installation) and installed Administration client & Office client on the server. It was successfully installed and all functionality was working fine.
    Now I want to access this server from client machine (desktops). The desktops has Microsoft Office 2007 installed and trying to access SAP BPC using http://<servername>/osoft
    I am able to get the home page, but when I click on icon "Client Software Center", I am not getting any icons for installing Client software (Ex: BPC for Office Installation, BPC client Diagnostics or BPC for Administration Installation)
    Appreciate if someone can help me on this.
    Cheers,
    RAJU

    That address should get you to the default landing page where you can access the software center.  Since this is a single server environment you should obvioulsy be addressing the web server.  I assume when you installed the client components on the server you were logged in as the service account that you installed the software with.  If you are connecting from your desktop using authentication, then you would be connecting with the ID and password that you login to your PC with.
    Have you gone through the BPC Administration security console and added your network ID to the application?  If not, then the system will know you are not a vaild system user and you would not be able to install the software.
    If you feel you have done this, then run the connection wizard and choose the option to connect with an alternate user ID and use the service account and verify you can access the software center.  If you can with the service account but not with your ID then it is a application security issue with how your network account is setup in the system.
    The other thing to check, when you say you cannot get the software center icon, are you getting the landing page and just not seeing it or are you getting a page error accessing the page?  If you are getting a page error and you did not use the default port to connect with then you would need to pass the port number through when you are addressing the server (e.g. http://servername/osoft:8080)

  • [Oracle8.1 Client] Silent install

    Hye,
    Trying to make a silent install with Oracle8.1 Client, the goal is to build an MSI package who installs client automatically. I think my clientcustom.rsp is good, but when I launch the command :
    C:\Program Files\Oracle\oui\install>setup.exe -responseFile "C:\Response\oracle.swd.Custom.rsp" -silent
    There is no effect. If I remove silent option, OUI launchs, but dont take in order parameters who are in custom.rsp...
    Other thing, to make a silent install install of Oracle8.1, it is obligatory to have OUI installed on computer ?
    The other problem is I have to integrate tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora in installation.
    So what would be the best solution for realize that ? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks in advance.
    Anyway I see a strange thing :
    - I launch the command C:\Program Files\Oracle\oui\install>setup.exe -record -DestinationFile "C:\Response\oracle.rsp" . OUI launch correctly.
    - But after install, I don't see oracle.rsp file created.
    - In Silent mode, I launch "C:\Program Files\Oracle\oui\install>setup.exe -responsefile C:\clientminiresponse.
    rsp"
    - In Logs, I see "Installation use oracle.rsp file".
    - But the Installer don't use values which are in oracle.rsp file. It seems that it takes in order only oraparam.ini.

  • Is it possible to control what updates a client will install, but have them be downloaded from Microsoft?

    We have many smaller sites that are connected to our MPLS network on low bandwidth links such as 2 - 4 Mbps. There is not enough infrastructure there to support a DP site server.  Is there a way to tell the client what Windows Updates to install, but
    have that client download from Microsoft rather than a DP? 
    Part of the problem is that the DP for those clients will have the files, so most of the options I see on the specify download settings of this deployment page of the wizard, do not seem to work for me.  I see where I can tell the client to use Microsoft
    Updates if the updates are not found on distribution point. But they will be found because they will be there for clients that use it with higher bandwidth. 
    Is branch cache ( or allow clients to share content I guess ) my only option?
    Thanks

    Ok, keep in mind that this stuff is not tested, not documented, and not supported:
    Under "SELECT * FROM SMS_SCI_Component WHERE ComponentName = ' SMS_WSUS_CONFIGURATION_MANAGER ' AND SiteCode = 'CEN'"
    Property is:
    HostBinariesOnMicrosoftUpdate
    Undocumented, untested, but normally untested stuff works well for ConfigMgr! Flag is propbably translated to this WSUS feature:
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.updateservices.administration.iupdateserverconfiguration.hostbinariesonmicrosoftupdate(v=vs.85).aspx
    So try setting it to 1 and have a go?
