Error when accessing graphic (BDS), RC = 5

Recently I experienced Error when accessing graphic (BDS), RC = 5 BDS (Business Document Service) error when I try to display a SAP Smartform output which has a logo graphic on it. First, I thought I forget to transport the image that I imported to SAP system using SE78 transaction. But later I realized that the problem is bigger than I thought. The main cause was the BDS or Business Document Service was not available on target SAP system.

This is the error message when I try to get the SAP Smart Form invoice output.

There is probably an error in the BDS

When I display the error long text, I can see the message "There is probably an error in the BDS" pointing a problem related with SAP Business Document Service (BDS)
