Powerplay and remote cubes --hangs --please help


#1

We are on Cognos 7.0 (I know…old…very old…ancient…lol)
We have a project to upgrade to Cognos 10 very soon.
We have not played with Cognos installs for about 8 years…very rusty.
I needed to install/try out Cognos 7.0 on windows 7, with Oracle client 11i.
Got everything to install using 'compatibility mode’
impromptu works well…oracle data showing.
in security, my directory server appears and I can see all my users.
when I run powerplay, and open remote cube, I select the server, it list the cubes, when I select the cubes it hangs there until I get a timeout.
Its been so long…if someone knows this type of error, please help me.
Maybe it relates to Cognos 7 not fully working on windows 7, but If I can get some info on how this can be fixed on Xp I’ll apply the same work around on windows 7…fingers crossed.
Any help guys…
