    Hello Ravi,

    the Kapsel SDK is installed with your SMP SDK. Check the folder in which you installed the SMP SDK, there is a folder KapselSDK which contains the plugin folder.

    By default the SMP SDK is installed in folder (spoken for windows systems) C:\SAP\MobileSDK3. So the Kapsel SDK folder is C:\SAP\MobileSDK3\KapselSDK which contains the plugins folder.

    Please also create an environment variable KAPSEL_HOME pointing to your Kapsel SDK folder (e.g. C:\SAP\MobileSDK3\KapselSDK).

    Best Regards,

    To add,

    There is an openSAP course started last week, you will get more info on HAT, SAP Web IDE, SMP, Mobile SDK..

    Look for system preparation sections: Developing Mobile Apps with SAP HANA Cloud Platform - Jeff Gebo  and Dhimant Patel
