FDM Integration Fails on 64 Bit Windows OS

 Modified 30-SEP-2010     Type PROBLEM

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management - Version: and later   [Release: 11.1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to integrate with Hyperion Financial Management on a 64 bit windows operating system, the integration process fails and returns an error "Unable to Cast Com Object upsFM11xG5C".  This error occurs when attempting to browse for a target member, or export to HFM.


Currently the fdmFM11xG5C com+ application is registered on the FDM application server using the 32 bit version of the .NET Framework.  When FDM is installed on a 64 bit windows operating system, the adapter must be registered using the 64 bit version of the .NET Framework.


A) Copy the FDMFM11x-G5-C adapter components folder in it's entirety to the Hyperion\Products\FinancialDataQuality\SharedComponents Folder
B) Start > Run > DCOMCNFG
C) Expand Component Services > Computers > My Computer > Com+ Applications
D) Click on the fdmFM11xG5C com+ application and delete it using the delete key
E) Open a command prompt 
F) Use the following commands to re-register the adapter using the 64 bit .NET Framework

For 64-bit Windows operating systems

a.      C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegAsm.exe /codebase "<Path to your adapters folder>\FM11x-G5-C\fdmAdapterCOMadmin\fdmAdapterCOMadmin.dll"

b.      C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe "<Path to your adapters folder>\FM11x-G5-C\fdmFM11xG5C\fdmFM11xG5C.dll"

G) Right-click on the fdmFM11xG5C com+ application and choose "properties"
H) Click on the identity tab and choose the "This user" radio button and enter the FDM Service Account Username and the password and confirm the password.
I) Repeat the Process on the other FDM application server in the environment.
