  • Thanks for the good instructions. What I was missing in the documentations for the German XBRL is a description how to install /connect to the ERIC-Client.

    In our test-environment, we prepared the reports, linked the taxonomy, ran the reports -so far, so good, but when validating the reports, we get a message that the latest Version of the ERIC Client has to be installed (Adapter Version: Thanks for a short hint..

  • Hey Stefan.

    Some information which maybe helps you:

    MgmRep (or one of the german XBRL dlls) is looking for the 32 bit version of the ERIC API (EricAPI.DLL)

    using a registry lookup in the 32bit hive HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Landesamt fuer Steuern\Elster\Eric-xx.x.xx.x

    But Attention: You must have installed the VCRuntime12 (2013) too

    Then you'll get rid of this message.

    But we have another problem at the moment.

    regards Douglas

  • Hey all,

    I've got some more information which I'm going to share now.

    1st) The ERiC client (the required dll's) isn't part of the ManagementReporter Installation, so you have to register as developer on the ELSTER site :-(

    2nd) Moreover, ErIC seems to be the latast supported version by MS. This version is not available any longer on the ELSTER site. So you can try the 19.6.6 version.

    regards and good luck


  • Hi all,

    some more information.

    Meanwhile I've started waving the white flag. This setup seems so complicated for me. I think this is beyond my sphere of influence.

    Maybe someone else can share some info.

    What I'm really missing in this Part 4 video are the last "30 seconds to bliss"

    sorry and regards


  • DouglasNoel,

    Can you click email blog author and provide your email address? Let us know what you're struggling with.



  • Hey Ryan,

    thank you for your offer.

    But, sorry, in the meanwhile I have changed the white flag to a red banner.

    I think it is better not to use this german specific part for validation/submitting.

    We're going to use some other program for that.

    Does this part REALLY works? Any Testruns? Any successful customer?

    Where is the missing video part?

    regards and sorry
