How to install SAP BO dashboard 4.0 (SP9) ?

I have downloaded SAP BO dashboard 4.0 (SP9). and referred some documents,

please check the following link…

in there it has mention SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards under the "Server Products and Operating Systems" and also in the "Desktop Clients and Operating Systems" So I'm little bit confused about the installation. Please let me inform

1. Do I need to install SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards on server before install it to the client.

2. If we need to install it on server kindly inform the installation and configuration steps to follow.

kindly consider that I'm new to this SAP system.

BO Dashboards (Xcelsius) is a client tool and its not necessary to install it on a server, similar to Business objects Enterprise platform. You will have to install this software on your local machine, develop the dashboards and then publish to the respective environment (dev/prod).

The guide is talking about the respective desktop and OS that are compatible with the above dashboard version.

I hope this helps.
