Loopback Adapter: problem installing SAP IDES

Experts I'm having problem while configuring my SAP IDES ECC6.0. Well I have installed everything but the issue is with the LOOPBACK ADAPTER configuration on VISTA.

I have installed LOOPBACK ADAPTER but the issue is that its displaying the 'limited connectivity or no connection' on network and sharing center.

Is there any possibility to resolve this issue than let me know as soon as possible because I need to

perform some important tasks.

Regards,

Yahya Shoaib.

      This is more of the SAPINST problem. Download the latest SAPINST and try.

      pS. there seem to be a bug sapinst7.2. It stops at process "install javaengine" with error,

      retrying with sapinst 7,1 and continuing with old istallation worked for me.

    HI,

    The Microsoft Loopback adapter is a testing tool for a virtual network environment where network access is not available. Also, you must use the Loopback adapter if there are conflicts with a network adapter or with a network adapter driver. You can bind network clients, protocols, and other network configuration items to the Loopback adapter, and you can install the network adapter driver or network adapter later while retaining the network configuration information. You can also install the Loopback adapter during the unattended installation process.

    To manually install Loopback adapter follow the steps given in the link below :

    Thanks,

    This loopback is not supporting windows VISTA for installing SAP IDES 6.0.

    Therefore, for SAP IDES installation windows XP is recommanded.
