Interactive Reporting - Dashboard Builder and WIN 7

There has been some difficulty getting the Dashboard Builder portion of the IR Studio client to work on WIN 7 64-bit PC's. These instructions may be used to fix that problem.

Note: Interactive Reporting, including both the IR Workspace (web) and the Studio Desktop client, will be decommissioned on March 1st, 2019. Neither the web nor the desktop software will be available or supported after this date.

UW-Madison affiliates can find more information on alternative tools on the Office of Data Management and Analytics Services website.

Other UW System affiliates can find additional information, as well as a list of support contacts, on the UWBI Support website.

Dashboard studio can run on WIN 7 64-bit PC.  Below is a list of the steps required to make it work on a 64-bit computer:

1. Copy c:\windows\system32\brioqry.tlb to c:\windows\syswow64\brioqry.tlb

2. Copy c:\windows\system32\mscomct2.ocx and c:\windows\system32\mscomctl.ocx to c:\hyperion\products\biplus\bin\mscomct2.ocx and c:\hyperion\products\biplus\bin\mscomctl.ocx

3. Register those ocx by running the commands "regsvr32 c:\hyperion\products\biplus\bin\mscomct2.ocx" and "regsvr32 c:\hyperion\products\biplus  \bin\mscomctl.ocx"

Note that in older Dashboard Builder versions you may have to use "product" rather than "products" in the c:\hyperion paths above.

If you have any questions please call the DoIT Help Desk at (608) 264-4357 and select option 2.

A script has been written to perform steps 1 through 3 and will be published once tested.
