In a business scenario where Business Analyst Desktop has been installed and licensed on one machine, but an admin has installed the relevant data on a shared drive, even though the required .sdlic file for the data exists on the local machine, the application still doesn't recognize the dataset and may throw the following error:
"No Locally installed Business Analyst dataset is detected, thus some Business Analyst functionality will be disabled. Install a local dataset or Sign into ArcGIS Online (File > Sign In...) to enable Business Analyst functionality."
Business Analyst Desktop only recognizes datasets that are locally installed, unless a custom installation is performed. Use the following steps to reconfigure Business Analyst Desktop on the local machine, and test the connection to the dataset from a remote machine on the network.
Note: The following steps involve making changes to the Windows Registry on one or more network machines and may require admin access.
Warning: The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary. Esri cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions; therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.
Note: The remote machine must also have ArcMap installed to test the data connection.
