Connect to BW RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.  I keep getting an error saying that the RFC library is not installed on my computer, even though I'm able to connect Power BI to SAP BW.  What do I need to do to be able to connect the Data Catalog client tool to BW?  Can someone shed some light, please?

  • We found out what the issue was.  Because we had the Power BI connector packaged as App-v, the DLL files weren't being copied to C:\Windows\System32.  To make this work, we extracted all the libraries and copied them manually to that Windows folder.
