I have already install ECC 5.0 IDES using windows 2003 + MySQL in my laptop. Can I install the BW-SEM IDES using the same laptop?

Thanks in advance.

    If you have enough space and memory- yes.

    • Memory/RAM.

      You can, of course, compensate that using virtual memory/swap, but in that case you will need a lot of patience when you start the system. I have seen 2 GB boxes taking > 30 minutes to start up BI with the Java part.

      Java uses heap memory exclusively, means, 1 GB for one Java server process (on 32bit) plus the database (512 MB - 1 GB) plus the ABAP part needing buffers + memory for the data.

      If you start both systems at the same time working with it will be almost impossible since the system will be mainly busy with swapping.
