After installing Data Services Client Tools (4.1 SP02 64 bit)  on Windows 8.1 , Data services designer crashes after right click on a table. There are four clients and every client has the same problem for all repositories. 

after right click on a table, an empty pop-up menu appears.

Event viewer details:

-<Event xmlns="">
<ProviderName="Application Error" />
<EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID>
<TimeCreatedSystemTime="2014-05-09T06:57:09.000000000Z" />


<Data>C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services\bin\AL_Designer.exe</Data>

DS 4.1 client tools were never supported for Windows 8. You'll need 4.2.

Thank you for your answer.

Server version is 4.1. Can i work on 4.1 repositories with 4.2 client ?

No, you need exactly the same version (down to the patch level!) on client and server.
