2004s on Windows Vista


Hi all,

I wonder if it is possible to install the trial version of SAP NetWeaver 2004s on a Windows Vista system (Business Edition).

I tried it out but the installation process failed right in the beginning with an error log entry that states the installation program is not able to execute "RegOpenKeyEx". This error appears for several registry entries in the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\" folder. So step by step I set "full access rights" for the administrator role (I run the installation from this role) and continued. Now I have reached an entry where you can not change the rights for any user. It is the "gpsvc" entry. When I try to change anything there I get the error message "Access denied".

Did anyone have some experiences in installing the 2004s trial version on Windows Vista? Can anyone tell if it works?

If some SAP officials read this thread, could you please make a statement if Windows Vista is supported for 2004s? Thank you!
