Sneak Preview 2004s ABAP error


Hi All,

I’m currently wrestling with the Sneak Preview/ABAP download. When I execute SAPinst, I get the following error:


SAPinst is getting started.

Please be patient ...

starting gui server process:

sapinstport: 21200

guiport : 21212

command : "C:\j2sdk1.4.2_09\bin\javaw.exe" -cp "C:/DOCUME1/CALUMF1/LOCALS1/Temp/sapinst_exe.704.1148385149\jar\instgui.jar;C:/DOCUME1/CALUMF1/LOCALS1/Temp/sapinst_exe.704.1148385149\jar\inqmyxml.jar" -Xmx256M -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200

I’m using j2sdk1.4.2_09.

I’ve installed MS Lookback adapter and updated host file with IP address. Host settings are: localhost CFLAPTOP

Users all have admin authorization

Set environment Variables JAVA_HOME to C:\j2sdk1.4.2_09

PATH to C:\j2sdk1.4.2_09\bin

Windows XP 2003 (SP2)

Ports 3201, 3601 and 50000 to 50030 are free.

Any help <u>really</u> appreciated.

Thanks - Calum
