SAP’s Holiday Gift: Xcelsius 2008 SP3


Yes, the much awaited SP3 for Xcelsius 2008 is out there. Follow the below instructions to download and install. This is a big update from SAP. It’s more than a regular Service Pack that you’ve seen in the past. It’s not just bug fixes, it has a bunch of new features that we all were asking for ever since 2008 was released.

  1. Click here to launch the downloads page
  2. Click on “Get Crystal Reports, Crystal Reports Server, and Xcelsius downloads”
  3. Select Xcelsius, 2008 and Service Pack and click search
  4. Click to download the Service Pack

Things to note:

  • The Xcelsius SP3 is a Cumulative Service Pack not an incremental. That means, you need to uninstall the existing version of Xcelsius on your machine and then run the executable that you have downloaded.
  • While installing please keep the Key code ready. The installation will ask you to enter at at the beginning. This is the same key code that you might have received from SAP when you purchased the license.
  • Please visit the Gurus Network @ Everything Xcelsius for more updates on the new features and enhancements on SP3. (Update: Read Ryan Goodman’s Top 10 Xcelsius 2008 SP3 Enhancements! @ EE)
