Hyperion EPM V11.1.2.2 installation user account pre-requisite

As already committed, I will come up with exact prerequisites post for  installing and configuring Hyperion EPM System V11.1.2.2 soon. But till then, thought to share this very basic and simple pre-requisite of EPM System while on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 operating system.

When I just tried to run installTool.cmd by double clicking it, I got following errors. This is good feature of V11.1.2.2 about the detailed description of installation prerequisites. 
The last error is related to user account used for installation. I was using my own account which is admin user of the system and still, got this user account error.
Solution – Instead of just running the installer installTool.cmd, run the installer as administrator.
Right click installer – installTool.cmd and run as administrator.
 After this, the last error got resolved but still the first error was still present while installing hyperion EPM System V11.1.2.2 installer as given below.

The user account control error shown above can be resolved by user account control settings as given below.
In Windows 2008 environments, disable User Access Control (UAC) on each server in the deployment.
Control Panel -> System and Security
With these very basic solution, both prerequisites errors were resolved and the installation of Hyperion EPM System V11.1.2.2 started successfully.
