Business Objects Explorer – Request Timed Out

While working on a new space I began getting the following error:

SAP Business Objects Explorer Request timed out

Interesting… This is a new space. A quick search over BOB, the SMP, and as a last resort, Google, did not yield any results. So, I turned my attention back to the universe. Shame on me, I neglected to run an Integrity Check in Designer before I got started with my new space. There was a single object that did not parse correctly causing Explorer to throw this error.

Call me crazy, but I’m just thinking that if Explorer is using Web Intelligence for its access to the semantic layer, why could it not move the error messaging up from that?
