SSO with Analysis for Office using OLAP on BI LaunchPad?

I have learned a lot about Analysis for Office and SSO for BW and the BI Launch Pad in the past year.  Now I just need to put them all together.

I am using Analysis for Office (A4O) 1.4.2 and Business Object for Enterprise (BOE) 4.0 SP4 Patch11.  I am using SAP BW for the backend.

I am starting a blank A4O workbook and I insert a data source via the BOE login using a (OLAP) connection on BOE to get to BW.  I save the A4O to the BI Launch Pad.  Now…when I open the BI Launch Pad and open the A4O from the BI Launch Pad…I get a sign on screen for BOE.  How/what do I need to set up to not get that sign on screen for BOE (I am already signed on to the BI Launch Pad)? 

On a side note…I do not have to sign on to BW. That is taken care of via a token between BOE and BW.  And I have SSO set up so that when I go to the BI Launch Pad…I do not see the sign on screen.  I am authenticated via Windows AD.  And my OLAP connection to BW on the BOE system is set up with SSO authentication.

For the BOE sign on screen I have checked the “Enable Single Sign for Windows Active Directory” but I can’t get it to work unless I uncheck the box and put in my password (See below).  The error I get when I check the box and leave the PW blank is below also.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
