Problem to install a license on miniSAP 4.6D

Hi All,

I bought the ABAP OBjects book with miniSAP 4.6D. The mini sap's license is only for one month. When I'm trying to renew it with the DOS command saplicense -install, I have the following error :

      • SAPLICENSE <Release 46D> ERROR ***

      ERROR: Can not set DbSl trace function

      DETAILS: DbSlControl<DBSL_CMD_IMP_FUNS_SET> failed with return code 20

      RC-INFO: error loading dynamic db-library - check environment for:

      dbms_type = <db-type> (e.g. ora)

      DIR_LIBRARY = <patch to db-dll> (e.g. /usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run)

      Before launching saplicense -install, I'm executing dbenv.cmd to initialize the dbms_type and DIR_LIBRARY variables. (dbms_type=mss and DIR_LIBRARY=.)

      To solve this problem, I read on another thread of this forum that I need to start the MBS System, but it doesn't work.

      For information, I use windows 2000 Pro and I'm logged as administrator.

      Thank you very much for your help.

      I'm frustrating with this problem.

        You can extend your license here [] .Choose system ID, which is MBS. To get your Hardware ID see Installing the SAP License in mini.html file stored in your Mini SAP CD1.

          Thank you for your reply but I already did it.

          The question is why afterwards when I'm trying to extend the license with saplicense -install, I have this error....

          Normally ,with this command I should enter the new license key (I already received it from the adress you gave me), but it doesn't work.
