Last updated on DECEMBER 02, 2015

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Generic Windows

Symptoms

The baseline validation tools (bvt) can be configured to run with FireFox or Internet Explorer via the BVT configuration file.

 

For example:

<!-- Which BrowserType to use to load reports, Firefox, InternetExplorer. Leave empty for default browser -->
<Parameter name="BrowserType" value="InternetExplorer"/>

 

While running the BVT on a Windows host configured with Internet Explorer, you encounter the following error:
