Update Monitoring Server with Service Pack 3

Updated: 2009-10-22

Microsoft Office PerformancePoint ServerĀ 2007 with Service Pack 3 (SP3) is available as a Microsoft Installer file. This file automatically updates all installed PerformancePoint client, server, and database files and schema to the latest version. PerformancePoint client software such as the Planning Business Modeler and PerformancePoint Add-in for Excel are updated with separate .msp files. PerformancePoint Planning Server and Monitoring Server are updated by means of their own .msp files that update the configuration managers. All clients and servers must be updated with PerformancePoint Server 2007 SP3 for continued communication and operation.


PerformancePoint Server 2007 SP3 only updates version 2007 PerformancePoint servers and clients. Earlier versions of PerformancePoint servers and clients need to be updated to version 2007 before the service pack is run. If you experience any problems with the SP3 update, contact Microsoft Support for further assistance.


Service Pack 3 will only update PerformancePoint Monitoring Server 2007 RTM, SP1, or SP2 versions. No earlier versions are supported for the SP3 update.

Updates for client software in PerformancePoint Server 2007 SP3

The PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer will be updated automatically on each client computer when the Dashboard Designer is started after the server has been updated to SP3.


After you upgrade PerformancePoint Monitoring Server with Service Pack 3, you must install the Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2008. The Report Viewer Redistributable allows a client to open a reporting services report after upgrading to SP3. See Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2008 on the Microsoft Download Center to install.

PerformancePoint Monitoring Server Service Pack 3 updates

To ensure compatibility between the multiple components of the server, any update to the server requires all server binaries to be replaced with new binaries containing the new version number. Version checking is enforced.

Update PerformancePoint Monitoring Server 2007 or PerformancePoint Monitoring Server SP2 to SP3

Use the following process to update PerformancePoint Monitoring Server 2007 to Service Pack 3.

  1. Run the PerformancePoint Server 2007 SP3 update on the computer where PerformancePoint Monitoring Server is installed. Also run the SP3 update on the computer running Microsoft Office SharePoint Server that has PerformancePoint Dashboard Viewer for SharePoint Services installed. If Dashboard Viewer for SharePoint Services is deployed in a server farm environment, run SP3 on all servers in the farm.

  2. Once SP3 has updated all Monitoring Server installations, update PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer by connecting to the updated server or servers. This will automatically update Dashboard Designer to SP3.

  3. You can verify that Dashboard Designer has been updated to SP3 by confirming that the current build number is updated to SP3 (3.0.4417.0).

The PerformancePoint Monitoring Server SP3 update only updates the Monitoring Server binary files; it does not update the Monitoring Server database.

Uninstall SP3

You can uninstall PerformancePoint Monitoring Server 2007 SP3 binary files by using Add/Remove Programs.
