How you start Report Designer depends on which platform you are using Windows, Linux, or OS X.

On Windows
If you used the Pentaho Business Analytics installer available to you through your subscription, you will have a Start menu category for all of your Pentaho applications. To run Report Designer, click the Report Designer item in the Pentaho Business Analytics subdirectory in the Pentaho application folder. Alternatively, you can run the pentaho\design-tools\report-designer\report-designer.exe from Windows Explorer or the command prompt.
On Linux
The Business Analytics installer does not create program entries in the K menu or Applications menu in Linux desktop environments, so you will have to start Report Designer by navigating to the pentaho/design-tools/report-designer/ directory and running the report-designer.sh script. You can do this from your file manager, or from a terminal window.
On OS X
The Mac installation procedure does not create program entries in the dock, so you will have to start Report Designer by opening your Applications folder, then the report-designer sub-folder, then running report-designer.app.
