Troubleshooting CMaps Plugin

SYMPTOM: When I restart Xcelsius, I get errors thrown or the canvas shows up black.
SOLUTION: This is caused when you install CMaps Plugin which is built with Flex 4, into a Flex 2 version of SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards (earlier than 6.0.3). If you are using an older Flex2 version of SAP Dashboards, please contact Centigon Solutions sales to check availability of using GMaps Plugin.

SYMPTOM: When I preview my dashboard works OK, but when I publish to my server I get the following error:
“Deployment to domains is not supported with the trial version of CMaps plugin. If you need support to demo the trial on your domain, please click OK and we will be happy to assist you. Please include the following url in your support request:â€�

This is expected behavior for the trial version. If you attempted to install the full version and still get this error, please log a case at our customer support portal.
