2004S MiniSAP ABAP: SAPGUI crashes when creating a Web Service


I have installed the NW2004S ABAP Preview System from SDN on a VMWare Image (Windows XP, 1.7 GB Mem).

No problems during the install. Also I was able to run the sample Web Dynpro Quiz Application.

However when try to create a Web Service the SAP GUi crashes with the Windows Error Message "dispwork.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." Interestingly enough the "dispwork.exe" process in the MMC continues to be green and I can reconnect.

Here are the detailed steps if you want to try to re-produce:


2) Select Function Module "BAPI_FLCUST_GetList"

3) Right mouse click and Create -> Web Service

4) Web Service Wizard opens, type in name for Web Service (Z_...) and continue with the default settings

5) Creat as Local Object

Result: After about 5 minutes of compiling the SAP GUI crashes. The Web Service is not created (checked in WSADMIN)

Any help is greatly appreciated. Will reward points for hints which lead to a resolution.
