Installing SAP NetWeaver 7.0 ABAP Trial Version on x64 bit machine

21 Views

Hi,

I am trying to install SAP NetWeaver 7.0 ABAP Trial Version onto my server which is running Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 (Processor is AMD Dual-Core Opteron 1210 / 1.8 GHz) however the installation fails at 17%.

Upon reviewing the the logfile MaxDBSAPNWPREV.log its evident that the issue is due to the os being the 64 bit version. Some of the log file is as follows:

Mon Mar 31 14:04:24 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: software in package SAP Utilities is not runnable on your system

Mon Mar 31 14:04:24 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: FILE MAGIC: MS Windows 32-bit i386 executable

Mon Mar 31 14:04:25 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: YOUR SYSTEM: architecture = AMD64

Mon Mar 31 14:04:25 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: YOUR SYSTEM: subversion = Service Pack 2

Mon Mar 31 14:04:25 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: YOUR SYSTEM: system = Windows

Mon Mar 31 14:04:25 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: YOUR SYSTEM: version = NT 5.2

Mon Mar 31 14:04:25 BST 2008 MaxDB sdbinst: installation exited abnormally at Mo, Mar 31, 2008 at 14:04:23

Does anyone know a way round this? Is there anyway to get the installation successful on my server? The model is HP Proliant Server ML 115.

Thanks for your time and help.
