Hyperion 9

The College is upgrading to Hyperion 9 on Oct 27, 2008. See the Hyperion 9 Installation article for details on installing the new Hyperion.

Common problems with Hyperion

Most problems with Hyperion can be resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the Hyperion Client. Uninstalling: Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, uninstall the Hyperion Intelligence Client Reinstalling: Go to the Hyperion server: http://go.middlebury.edu/hyperion?prod navigate to a report (will have a BQY extension), you will be prompted to install the client. If you have a pop-up blocker on your web browser, it will block the client installation. Step-by-step instructions are available here: http://kb/article.asp?article=1218&p=7 and here: Hyperion Reinstall Steps.

Hyperion does not install under non-admin accounts

There's no indication of this, it just stays on "checking status". Temporarily granting admin privileges to the account resolves the problem.

Making Internet Explorer more compatible with Hyperion

Hyperion needs to open certain screens in a pop-up window, so you need to configure your browser to allow pop-ups for Hyperion. In brief: add *.middlebury.edu to the trusted sites, add *.middlebury.edu to the list of allowed pop-ups. For details, see Making Internet Explorer more compatible with Hyperion for details.

Hyperion Runs But Reports Open in a Blank Grey Screen

Cause: Most likely Internet Explorer 7 and Hyperion 9 are conflicting in some way.


  1. Uninstall hyperion from Add/Remove programs.
  2. Still in Add/Remove programs scroll down to Windows Internet Explorer 7 and REMOVE / Uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
  3. Reboot.
  4. Install Hyperion.
