Thanks for he reply…

I’ve configured Webi version 2.x on Win 2000 server ( IIS 5.0 ) .The same thing worked when i tried installing on Win 2003 server by allowing web services extension ( iswi.dll) , but Webi admin does’nt work in win 2003.

Can you please help me to identify the error and fix this,so that i can access both Webi client as well as admin modules.

thanks in advance…

WebI 1.x/2.x isn’t supported on Windows 2003. So, as long as we are on BusinessObjects 5.x (WebI 1.x/2.x) – our Windows WebI server has stayed on Windows 2000 Server.

It appears that your experience shows that some of WebI works ok on Win 2003 server, but the admin module is one part, for sure, that does not.

Is it something to do with Jave version installed on my machine ???
