SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.03 SP04 Trial SAPINST error

Hi All,

I'm trying to in stall the SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.03 SP04 Trial application but I'm not getting the install screen.

When I launch the SAPINST program I get a screen that flashes and then nothing. When I check in the windows taskbar I see a SAP idoc for the program starter. When I open this one I can see the log below.

I'm trying to install this on a windows 8.1 laptop.

I have installed the latest version of JAVA 64 bit as recommended in the following blog How to install SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.03 SP03 Trial – Ready for ABAP in Ecplipse (AiE)

I have full rights on this laptop so authorization should not be a problem.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get this installing?

    Some additional information.

    When the SAPINST is executed it creates a new folder in windows 8 this is under the C:\Users\peter_000\AppData\Local\Temp\ folder. This folder gets a dynamic name like sapinst_exe.7668.1407600607. In this folder is also a version of Java.

    Now I made a copy of this folder because at the moment that you exit the SAPINST program this folder gets deleted.

    Anyhow after having copied this folder I replaced the filed in the JRE folder with the data from my JRE7 folder.

    In this SAPINST folder there is also again the program called SAPINST.

    When I now launch this program I get a CMD window that is opened and then the GUI screen is showing. However in this GUI screen SAP is asking for a user and password.

    I have tried entering my windows userID and password but that is not accepted.

    From the information that I found on SCN or elsewhere I have not seen anyone needing to enter such a password or ID.

    Ref blog --> How to install SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.03 SP03 Trial – Ready for ABAP in Ecplipse (AiE)

    Anyone an idea on how I can get this installed? Can I make the SAPINST program to use my installed java version instead of the version that it extracts itself?

    • After allot of searching and testing I managed to get the application installed.

      In the end what did it was that I executed the SAPINST and the program launched with the result of what is mentioned in the first mail.

      With this window still open I went into the internet explorer and navigated to the temp directory that the installer created under C:\Users\peter_000\AppData\Local\Temp\.

      I copied that whole folder to another folder where I had full rights. I then proceeded to overwrite the SAP version that is in the temp file with the JRE7 version which is installed on my machine. Then I took the whole content of that folder and saved this into the standard extracted folder where the SAPINST.exe program resides and I allowed the system to overwrite all the data. After this I launched the SAPINST.EXE and the install started without any further issues.

    I had absolutely no issues what-so-ever. I also did not need to copy any "...\drivers\etc" content to anywhere else in my c drive.

    I believe the trick is on the java you install before running sapinst.exe

    I am using j2sdk 14.2.19 for Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit (NOT, I repeat, NOT JRE)
