Installer Packages Description

I’m in the process of installing and thought of updating on the changes (yes it starts from the installer itself) on the installers.
To install EPM system you should download the below given 4 zip file

 EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 1 V31859-01

 EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 2 V31860-01
 EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 3 V31861-01
 EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 4 V31862-01
Note: Even though you need these four ZIP files on each machine in the environment, install Foundation Services Web applications on only one machine (unless multiple instances are required for clustering).

Assembly dat files included in each zip file

EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 1 V31859-01

This is similar to the EPM System Installer and it contains

  • Installer

  • EPMA
  • Framework
  • Calc manager

EPM System Release for < Platform > Oracle HTTP Server V31867-01

Oracle HTTP Server package is now names as Oracle HTTP Server (This will avoid the confusion that many had when it is named as Additional Components)


EPM System Release for < Platform > Part 5 V31863-01 

This is something which I didn’t like about the installer. In case if I’ve to install Planning only, I’ve to still download the entire package.

  • Strategic finance
  • Planning

EPM System Release Client Installers for Microsoft Windows V31866-01

You’ll end up downloading the entire file (1.6Gb) to get the client exes.

  • Disclosure Management
  • EAS Console
  • Essbase Client
  • Studio
  • Excel Addin
  • HFM Client
  • FR studio
  • Offline Planning
  • Predictive Planning

  • HSF Client
Read this only, if you are trying to install this version on a client machine

I’ve a version on a Windows 7 machine (I know quite a handful of guys who run Hyperion on 7 and XP) and was thinking to run a maintenance install. I tried to start the installer on a Windows 7 machine and it reported a JVM fatal error.
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x6d9d18b6, pid=5224, tid=9324
# JRE version: 6.0_28-b03
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (20.3-b02 mixed mode windows-x86 )
# Problematic frame:
# V  [jvm.dll+0x1318b6]

I tried to install new JRE and point the installer to that folder, the fatal error got disappeared but it didn’t install any component. (Reported a different error) seems like from this version you can’t perform the installation on Windows 7 (client machines) anymore.
