Perform HP SIM 7.3 installation on Windows Server 2012R2

You will see management installation, not only client one. You can easily get and install client for managing 2012R2 Server from other machine.

Problem with SIM installation on 2012R2 Server is because of two things:
1.Setup application have to be run with compatibility settings
2.Server needs to have SQL Server installed

Installation of SIM 7.3 step by step.

Office 2013 and Exact Globe Next prior to 406 - cannot run Excel reports

When you have to upgrade your Office installation to 2013 version and using Exact Globe Next version before 406 then you cannot run Excel reports by default.
Office 2013 is not officially supported with Exact Globe Next version prior to 406.
But wait, there is a workaround to make both working, i.e. to run Excel 2013 reports on Exact Globe version 401 for example.

First you should try to install Office2010 on the top of the Office2013 and reinstall Exact Globe Next.
Just install Office 2010 as a second Office version and reinstall Exact Globe.
Then you can uninstall Office2010.

For me it worked for the two of three computers.

If you still cannot run Excel reports, then go to check your Windows registry:
1.Run regedit
3.Check if Excel.Application key is present.
4.If not, create it, and create subkey CLSID
5.Probably as option, but create the second subkey - CurVer
6.Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.15\CLSID
7.Copy data value from (Default)
8.Go to Go to HKEY_CLASSE…
