Email - PDF as Attachment from WebI (BI Launch Pad)


I am struggling to figure out why WebI is behaving in a different way when I
open a report in BI Launch Pad. I am planning to send an email with PDF as
attachment to a different user. I can only do this via WebI Rich Client but not
via BI Launch Pad when the WebI report is opened.  I thought it was to do with the permissions
but the same user can send the report as PDF attachment in Rich Client.

I was thinking if it’s the BO tool which do not allow or should there be Adobe
installed in the server side for the WebI to be picked up.

we are using V 4.0 SP7 P5.

Any suggestion welcome. Did try the Admin guide  but no luck....

thank you for reading.

Kind regards,
