OBIEE on Windows 2008

For a client we needed to install OBIEE on a Windows 2008 R2 machine.
These steps were followed:
  • Installation of Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1
  • Installation of Java (1.5.0 update 9 -> jdk-1_5_0_09-windows-i586-p.exe)
  • Installation of OBIEE 10g ( ->
After installing all services worked, except the Presentation Service.
In the log file the following error occured:
ODBC driver preload failed.  ODBC library name: ‘nqsodbc.dll’
After searching this error on the support site of Oracle I encountered the following error:


  • Go to the following path:: C:\install_files\V27616-01\Server\Oracle_Business_Intelligence\VC80
  • Installvcredist_x86.exe
Start the presentation service and all should work again.


  1. good one
