The definitive source for platform information is http://service.sap.com/pam

Installing the server components on Windows 7 is NOT supported. Also, it must be installed on 64-bit hardware.

Yes, BODS 4.0 can be installed on windows 7. However, if you are going to use this in some kind of production environment, it is recommended to install on some Enterprise version of Windows or Linux. I just installed it on my windows 7 machine to test BODS 4.0. Before you install BODS 4.0 you need install Information Platform Services.

If you want to know how to install BODS 4.0, you can check the link below.

Hi rajeev raj,

Server installation point of view it is not possible to instal BODS 4.0 on windows 7, XP or Vista.

I suggest to move to 2003, 2008.......

Thanks & Regards

BODS 4.0 is best suited for 64 bit Windows Server 2008.

Yes you need to install platform services for running the tool.

If you are particular about installing on Windows 7, i recommend you to go for BODS 3.2. Functionally there is not much difference between the two.
