After upgrading to Maximo 7.5.0.6 & BIRT 3.7.1, I have been unable to get the Preview to work.  When I run a preview, I get the usual parameter prompts (I'm running IE 9), and the preview starts, but it sits there indefinitely with "Processing ... Please Wait".

 

I'm not getting any clues from the Eclipse prompt either.

 

Can anyone help with this?

add this to your eclipse.ini

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=ie
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion=9999

 

Under preferences-> General Web Browser check settings

Under report design->Preview check Always use external browsers

 

It has been a long time since we updated and had the same issue so I think I covered it. You can always use HTML as the output until you get it sorted out.

This is a known issue.

Hey Wes:  didn't know that was a solution for this problem - I thought it was just for IE11 incompatibility.  I'll try it out though - thanks.

I can't make out the png file, so the report runs in eclipse, but fails in Maximo?
