When connecting to SAP BW, Tableau Desktop closes unexpectedly.
SAP® Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW)
Reinstall the SAP GUI Suite. Ensure that the Unicode RFC Libraries are installed.
The Unicode RFC Libraries (
icuuc34.dll) are missing and causes Tableau Desktop to exit.
You can run the
NWCheckWorkstation utility, included with SAP GUI Suite,
to help confirm that the .dll file is missing.
Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\SapSetup\setup.
After the utility completes its check, ensure that the
Collect diagnostic information for SAP Support
check box is selected.
Navigate to C:\TEMP\SAPsetup\Check to access the report.
You can also use
Procmon on tableau.exe to help identify the missing .dll file.
