NW ABAP Installation on Vista with DB Error -100 ERR_DBMSRV_NOSTART :



I am trying to install SAPNW7.01ABAPTrial verion on Vista OS.

I did the following steps successfully till now


1. Check first the system requirements.

2. Make sure the SAP Management Console is installed. If not install it here or by executing sapmmcX86u.msi from <extract_folder>\sapmmc.

3. Start the Installer and choose Run/Open in the upcoming pop-up window. Alternatively you can start setup.exe from <extract_folder>\image.

4. Follow the instructions in the install shield wizard.

5. After the installation has finished, the application server can be started automatically by selecting Start Application Server.

6. It is highly recommended to restart your system after installation.

7. After these steps i installed the SAPGUI , MAXDB and SQL Studio


Proceed as follows to connect to the NSP database by MaxDB Database Manager:

Install the database manager as described above.

Double click the Database Manager icon that should be placed on your desktop now. Alternatively use Windows Start menu under Programs -> MaxDB -> Database Manager

In the upcoming Database Manager click on Add...<<The NSP database instance is displayed. Click on OK to confirm this dialog.>>

When i click on the Add button i get the following error in a pop-up


Can anyone please tell me what i need to do to connect the NSP database by using MAXdb.


Thanks a Lot,
