NWDS -> Check for Updates? On Patch or SP Level?

Hi,

In NWDS menu -> Help -> Check for Updates one can if there is a new Software Update for the NWDS.

What kind of updates does it check/load? Is the check on PATch Level only?

Reason why I ask:

Check for Update says "Nothting to update"

Version of installad NWDS is:

SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.3 SP08 PAT0002

(According to Help -> About Sap Netweaver Developer Studio)

When I go to https://nwds.sap.com/swdc/downloads/updates/netweaver/nwds/nw/731/doc/update.html -> Updating Developer Studio -> SAP NetWeaver 7.1 SP3 and higher -> New Installation there newer Version:


8.31.80000.130515070002 SP08 PAT0000 Windows (1.07 GB) 8.31.80007.131217130029 SP08 PAT0007 Windows (1.07 GB) 8.31.90000.130814064541 SP09 PAT0000 Windows (1.07 GB) 8.31.90003.131220134746 SP09 PAT0003 Windows (1.07 GB) 8.31.100000.131016093512 SP10 PAT0000 Windows (1.07 GB)

Thanks

Kris

    Hi Kristian,

    The check happens mainly at patch levels, but for me, even that did not work.

    Try these SCN threads which i referred. They helped me a lot:

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/1076997

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/3250565

    try these docs related to installation and upgrade of NWDS:

    http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/80a100d2-109f-2e10-e996-c2b80803740b?overridelayout=true

    Hope this helps. 😊

      Good News! Update (at least on patch level) works within eclipse.

      I gave it another try with PAT1 for 8.31.100000.131016093512SP10.

      Before, I set the http and https configuration in the network settings preferences of eclipse to our internal proxy and provided authentiation information. After that to check if the update site is reachable one can test in the "available software sites" eclipse preferences the connection to the nwds update site. It did last a while until it succeeded, but it did.

      Afterwards the "Check for updates" did start the p2 update wizard and showed that PAT1 is available...

      Best Regards

      Kris

    just download from update site and install manually

    only for NWDS 7.2, we use online update.

    Hi,

    in my NWDS 7.31 SP11 P2 I had a wrong url in the update site settings (after install 😢)

    https://nwds.sap.com/swdc/downloads/updates/netweaver/nwds//nw/731/

    Removed one of the two / between nwds and nw in the URL and all good!

    Cheers

    Oliver
