The only authorized place to download evaluation software is from the Business Objects web site. At the time this post was written a page listing the available options was here:
Note that many of the enterprise products do not offer a free trial for downloading. You must contact your sales representative to arrange an evaluation product. If a product is not listed on the site linked above, it is very likely that there is no free / trial / evaluation copy available for download. Please do not request such from other BOB members as we do not support inappropriate or illegal file sharing on this board. Thanks for understanding and complying with this rule.
Please note: This topic is provided because of the number of posts we saw related to getting “free” or “evaluation” copies of SAP software. It is not intended to become a source for links to download evaluation software for any other companies. If your company has a product and you would like to get exposure on BOB you have two choices. You can join BOB and participate by answering questions and providing good suggestions or advice and include a link to your company web site or product download page in your signature. Or you can use the contact form to request information related to the BOB banner program.
You may not join this site just to promote your products. Such posts will be removed by the moderator team, and repeated abuse may result in your account being banned from the board.
