Who don’t remember the Desktop Intelligence or Reporter client ? This is the original reporting application for BusinessObjects, slowly replaced by Web Intelligence starting with XI in 2004. It is still usable on a BI4 system (but there is no more server part!)
Many of the frequently asked questions for Desktop Intelligence aka Deski are covered in the FAQ for the original “classic” full client application. Please see if your question is answered in that FAQ before posting your question in this forum, thanks.
