Essbase Studio Installation Order

Datavail | | October 3, 2014

I recently set up a client machine for a… client and found some odd behavior that was resolved with a simple change of installation order. I decided to use the standalone installers to the greatest extent possible.

I was installing these components for 11.1.2.1 on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit):

  • Hyperion Financial Reporting
  • Smart View
  • Spreadsheet Add-in
  • Essbase Studio
  • EAS

Turns out that the HFR standalone installer requires a preceding Foundation installation. BUT, if you run the Essbase Studio installer after you run Foundation and HFR, Studio fails to start.

When this happened to me, I had two options:

  1. Delve into the innards of installation documentation and OTN lore; or,
  2. Just try installing Essbase Studio first (the quick and the dirty).

If you’re on the clock, 2 is always preferable. Luckily, it worked. So this is the installation order I went with:

  1. Essbase Studio
  2. EAS
  3. Foundation
  4. HFR
  5. Smart View
  6. Spreadsheet Add-in

It was quick and painless and resulted in a working client machine in under an hour once I knew how and when to run everything.
