Microsoft ProClarity 6.3 SP2 RRS feed

  • General discussion


    Microsoft ProClarity 6.3 SP2 is now available on http://download.microsoft.com.  Items to note for this release are:


    • ProClarity 6.3 SP2 supports Windows Server 2008 and can be deployed on the same server with PerformancePoint Server 2007 SP2. However, some configuration is required and some restrictions apply (see documentation).  ProClarity 6.3 SP2 and Microsoft Office Sharepoint Services 2007 are not currently supported when running together on the same Microsoft Windows 2008 Server.
    • ProClarity 6.3 SP2 supports the SQL Server Analysis Server  8.0 and 9.0 OLE DB Providers, but it does not support the 10.0 OLE DB Provider that is released with SQL Server 2008. However, SQL Server 2008 functionality is supported with the SQL Server 9.0 OLE DB Provider, and the 9.0-version provider can be used to connect to 10.0 cubes.
    •  If users are installing ProClarity Desktop Professional 6.3. on Vista, they should bypass the installation wizard and use the setup.exe file instead. This will prevent users from encountering error messages that reference prerequisite programs which they have already installed.

  • Hello:


    I downloaded and installed both PAS 6.3 SP2 and PDP 6.3 SP2, but where are the XML files to upgrade:


    ProClarity Web Professional 6.3

    ProClarity Selector 6.3

    ProClarity KPI Designer 6.3


    The readme mentions them, but all I have are PAS63Hotfix2217.exe and PRO63Hotfix2217.exe.

    Ben, is there any SP2 update relevant to ProClarity Dashboard Server?  It looks like the last 3 hotfixes have excluded PDS.  Just wondering what the official guidance to clients should be regarding this platform.  Virtually all of our new deployments use PPS and not PDS but for those that still use it--what are the ramifications of a SQL2008 upgrade in a production PDS environment?

  • RT: you're right the xml file is not there.  We'll get that corrected.  Thanks!  update: RT, the .xml file is now included with the PAS hotfix files. 

    Rob: Yes, there will be a PDS SP2 hotfix however it's not published yet.  I'd recommend testing any upgrade in development before production.

  • Apologies for the delay on this.  PDS SP2 should be available with the PAS SP2 download today or possibly early next week at the latest.
