Windows environment variable %WINDIR% lost while updating B1 client!



while SAP Upgrade from 9.0 SP05 to 9.0 SP06 Windows lost (on various clients!!) the environment

variable %WINDIR%.

If you look into C:\Windows\System32\SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe the %WINDIR% variable is set

(to %systemroot%), but if you use it (e.g. in the windows exporer) Windows can't find the path!

Various Windows programms do not Work !!!! And of course: No upgrade of client possible (Installshiled-error 1622) because log file is set to %WINDIR%\....

This happends on varios clients, but not on all.

Is Think there is an error in upgrade process? Anyone else with this problem?

I have opend a message for SAP Supoprt.

Woraround: Set WINDIR new, restart Windows.
