How to fix Business Objects “Exception: CS, Job already in use”

Error Message: “Exception: CS, Job already in use”

The error message was received when data analyst ran a “Yearly” report

The explanation I found. The BusinessObjects Desktop Intelligence client is connecting to the server using an HTTP protocol which uses the network settings in the Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer IE6 by default set to 60 min time for send/receive timeout

Internet explorer IE7+ by default send/receive timeout set to 30 sec. Running “Yearly” report exceeded the threshold. To fix we can modify the registry manually, ReceiveTimeout DWORD value with a data value of (<number of seconds>)*1000.
