EPM Installation choices
we are upgrading our BPC 10.0 to BPC 10.1 SP5 and want to start building Embedded BPC applications with the EPM Excel Add-In (SP22).
When installing this Add-In, the wizard asks to choose which EPM solution to install:
- BPC Netweaver Standard Model
- BPC Netweaver Embedded Model
- BPC for Microsoft
- Financial Consolidation & others
See screenshot below:
We already have standard BPC applications running that were created in v10.0 and we want to keep using these of course, but we also want to roll-out new applications based on embedded BPC 10.1.
Is it really one or the other that you have to select? Meaning the EPM add-in would only work for either standard or embedded applications?
I went through the EPM installation and upgrade guide and couldn't find any reference to this choice, only this one:
Is there really a difference between the EPM add-in for embedded and standard. I would think no, but this wizard makes me doubt.
Anyone has an idea?

Different options sets different default settings in the EPM add on, you can always change it later once EPM is installed.
Any option will work during the installation.
When you create a new connection then you can select if you want to connect to standard or embedded.
