saprouter service cannot be started


Hi friends

I'm encountering an error of starting saprouter service on win32 platform, like 'The SAPRouter service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).' in eventviewer.

The physical server is window 2003 SP2 32bit, saprouter version is 700 and I also tried 640 but got the same error. The installation command of saprouter I used is 'ntscmgr install SAPRouter -b c:\saprouter\saprouter.exe -p "service -r -R c:\saprouter\ROUTTAB -C 2000 -Y 0 -D" '.

Additional info in the file dev_rout as below:


trc file: "dev_rout", trc level: 1, release: "700"
