SAPgui reinstallation 640 with BI Add-on (due to upgrade to Bi 7.0 )

We are currently upgrading from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0. Due to this we have to reinstall the SAPgui, this time with the feature "BI Add-On" ticked.

We had no problem with most of the clients where this reinstallation was performed.

But on very few clients we get the following error message after SAPgui reinstallation when the Analyzer (= the BI 7.0 successor of the BEx) is called:


Error: External component has thrown an exception.

at Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.LateBinding.LateGet(Object o, Type objType, String name, Object[] args, String[] paramnames, Boolean[] CopyBack)


at iExcel)

This error message does not help me very much because it is extremely unspecific...

I hope somebody can help me





Problem was caused by local firewall on the notebook where the SAPGui should be reinstalled.
