If you're having problems, just let us know what bits you are struggling with, and we may be able to help.  It will probably work out quicker than waiting for someone to send you a document, especially given the apparent reluctance of the poster to make it publicly available...

Hi ..

I want to install cognos 8 in windows 7..so plz send me installing document to me..My email id  g.rajesh244@gmail.com ..

Thanking you


Installation on Windows 7 is not a problem! I don't have experience with the 64 bit version, but 32 bit is not a problem.

If you want to install send me your E-mail address in a personal message and I can send you a Word document on how to install it. The word document has all sorts of screen shots in it for every single step!

If you are using IIS 7.0 (that's what I used when installing for the Word document) check the following:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21343353

If you are using IIS 7.50 check the following:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21381516

If you are installing Cognos 64 bit on a 64 bit OS it is possible that you need to run IIS in 32 bit mode. (This is because a part of the 64 bit suite is still in 32 bit. And that part is the website)
In order to run IIS in 32 bit mode run the following in a command prompt:
cscript [your location]\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1
(Search for the adsutil.vbs to fill in [your location])

Hi people,

If ever you need to find out if you can install Cognos to a specific platform, I'd suggest that you read the supported environments page as per below
https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27014110
I've worked in IBM Cognos Support for a few years and this is where I suggest people look before jumping into this type of endeavour.
As you will find, Cognos 8.4 does not support Windows 7, and Vista only maginally
Microsoft Windows 7   Not Supported   Not Supported
Microsoft Windows Vista SP1   Active   Active for Browser and Client only
Microsoft Windows Vista   Compatible   Compatible for Browser and Client only

Tip to find the supported environments page ... google keywords ( IBM Cognos <version you are after, e.g. 8.4> supported environments)

If you want to install Cognos on Windows 7 I'd suggest you look at 8.4.1
https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27017522

Hope this helps for future reference.
Cheers
PeterB

Hi all,

I'll like you to be warned that if you do install 8.4.0 what ever Fixpacks on Windows 7 and something goes wrong you will NOT be supported by IBM Cognos.  They will point you at the supported environments page and tell you to upgrade to 8.4.1.  If you have a valid license for IBM Cognos 8.4 then you can download 8.4.1 from passport advantage

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/

I'd strongly recommend you heed this warning as I do have knowledge of this from past experience.

Good answer.  Now can you get rid of the "Failing Gringo"? ... still find offensive.

Hi there all,

I've just discovered that Windows 7 comes with a vitual Environment using XP so it can be installed on Windows 7 sort a kinda as long as you set up and configure the Virtual environment which runs XP.

http://apcmag.com/inside-windows-7s-virtual-xp-mode.htm

We've just completed an install of 8.4 FP2 Framework Manager and Transformer and it works a treat.  You'll have to make sure though that you understand IBM Cognos's Virtual policy that covers this scenario.

So apologies, I was sort a kinda wrong
Cheers
