Installing BPC 7.5 NetWeaver Support Packages

Installing BPC NetWeaver Support Packages are a bit more involved than for the MS version. There are 2 parts to address: the ABAP SP and the BPC SP.

Before beginning, document the current install by making screen shots of the Server Manager screens into WordPad.

ABAP SP

For the ABAP SP retrieve the .SAR file from the SAP Marketplace

NOTE: ABAP BPC Support Packages are NOT cumulative, so download all the SPs between your current version and the latest.

  1. Software Downloads > Support Packages and Patches > A – Z Index > B
  2. SAP BPC FOR SAP NETWEAVER > SBOP PC 7.5 FOR SAP NW
  3. Comprised Software Component Versions > SAP CPM BPC ABAP 7.5 > Support Packages
  4. Check the box for the SP and click Add to Download Basket.
  5. At this point, the SP is in the Approval List tab of your Download Basket and needs to be approved for download by SAP.
