How to uninstall Netweaver 7.0 ABAP trial version

Hello Experts,

I am trying to remove failed installation of Netweaver 7.0 ABAP trial version. I had run Reigstry Clean tool and then tried to Delete c:\SAP and c:\SAPDB folders:

1. c:\SAP folder was deleted successfully.

2. c:\SAPDB folder can not be deleted. A message comes that 'sapni.dll from pgm can not be deleted. Source file may be in use'. Any help?

3. Do I need to delete anyother folder(s) or do anything else?

Thanks

Bhupendra

    Hi Bhupendra,

    look for sap uninstall program, it will be there after installation. I guess now you have del. some files already, so make sure you stop all SAP services stopped at service.msc(in services) then delete manually. I can't assure that you will be able to delete 100% with this as well but you can get back system resources.

    Regards,

    Hari.

    PS: Points are welcome.

    Hello Bhupendra,

    Actually you should uninstall the MaxDB using 'Control Panel' -> 'Add or Remove Programs' and then choose MaxDB. In your case you have to clean your registry as follows:

    Go to 'Start'->'Run...'-> enter regedit.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software: Search and delete all MaxDB entries.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System: Search and delete all MaxDB entries.

    After this, restart your computer and try to delete the MaxDB folder.

    Perhaps next time better use the unistaller.

    Kind regards,

    Klaus

    Hello,

    Uninstall procedure (worked for me):

    - Drop database: In order to do that go to the Control Panel click on 'Add and Remove Programs' and look for 'MaxDB'. Click on 'Change/Remove' which starts the Installation Manager of the MaxDB. Click on 'Remove MaxDB Components', select 'All Components' and enter the database manager user 'control' and your <password>. Quitt the dialog popup with 'yes'.

    - Stop SAPNSP_00 service Go to the Control Panel, click on 'Administrative Tools' and stop the SAPNSP_00 service.

    - Remove in your file system the directories of 'SAP' and 'sapdb'.

    -Go to 'Program Files/Common Files' and remove the directory 'Installshield'.

    - Run the clean up tool for the registry, press the radio button for 'Uninstall Service', enter 'NSP' for SID and '00' for the number.
