Why... Why... Why?
This blog is dedicated to documenting error resolution and other tidbits that I discover while working as a Consultant in the Oracle EPM (Hyperion) field. As much of my job revolves around issue resolution, I see an opportunity to supplement the typical troubleshooting avenues such as the Oracle Knowledgebase and Oracle Forums with more pinpointed information about specific errors as they are encountered. Beware, the information found in this blog is for informational purposes only and comes without any warranty or guarantee of accuracy.

EIS Console Crashes When Opening

In If you Install EIS on a standalone machine without Essbase Server, the console will crash with

Essbase Integration Services Console
"Unable to initialize Essbase."

This turns out to be because msvcr71.dll is missing from the PATH in startOlapbldr.bat.

To fix this,
Navigate to

Edit startOlapbldr.bat

Find the PATH line and change it to include %HYPERION_HOME%\ccr\bin at the END of the specified path but before the %PATH% directive. Yes... The location in the PATH does matter...

For instance:

The console will now start up.
