I'm trying to install the 8.4.1 SDK along side the 8.4.1 Developer Edition. I'm getting an error that "You cannot install this version of the product over a previously installed version. Please choose another directory." I reviewed the log file created in the temp folder but it didn't help much in terms of where the mismatch is.

Re: Cognos Developer Edition and SDK2012-04-16T17:52:16ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.The developer edition does not currently come with the client SDK.
This doesn't mean that you could not unpack the SDK and setup a client application. However, the login method used for the dev edition is pseudo-proprietary...
The easiest way forward is to download the STD edition from where you got the SDK.
Be sure to export the content from the dev edition before it times out!!

I'm looking at Microsoft SQL Server as a parallel where the Developer Edition is a low cost Enterprise Edition intended for non-production / development use. If we have to install full copies then I'm assuming there is potentially a licensing cost associated with that as well (unclear as I cannot find any licensing guidance on the ibm.com site).
