    Hello,

    The problem is ost likely with the spaces in the path to your temp directory.

    Can you please create a new temp directory, something like C:\temp and change the path to it?

    Sapinst often has problems evaluating C:\Documents and Settings

    After this restart sapinst and it should proceed,

    Regards,

    David

    Please reward points if helpful.

    Hi ,

    Are you able to run the java at command level ,

    Type : javac in the command prompt , if you are able to execute java ,then the path given in the env variable is right otherwise you have to set proper env vaiable:

    Try this: in the user variables give:

    Varible : JAVA_HOME

    Vaule: give the java path up to jre only

    In the Sytem Variables

    Variable: Edit the path variable:

    Value: give the java path up to bin
