EhP4 Stack file format error in xml

Hi all,

My intention is to Upgrade an sap system 4.6C to Ecc6 including EhP4.

i am running through many problems since now 😔

Here is my newest one:

In solution manager i calculated a stack.xml. After that, i copied the files to the test system which i am upgrading. Now in phase "Stack configuration" i must provide the xml-file.

when i click next, i get an error:

"

The selected configuration file ("M:InstCds

w70ehp1SMSDXML_P01_20090520113757.307.xml") is not useable.

Reason: "File format error"

"

Update ....

OK my fault.

in SAP Note Number: 1022704 is the info that in case of start release BELOW 4.6, you cannot use the xml-file, you have to choose the txt-file 😔

Hm .. we have 4.6 which is not BELOW 4.6 but with the txt-file is works ... now i have the next error ...

i tried different files but every time the same error ...

Any idea ?

regards,

Bjoern

    Does the TXT file work or not? I don't see your question if the txt file works.

    The information In the TXT are the same as in XML - so there is no need for wanting a XML in 4.6

      Sorry,

      As i wrote

      "

      Hm .. we have 4.6 which is not BELOW 4.6 but with the txt-file is works ... now i have the next error ...

      "

      is work for the txt-files in this way, that the stack can be read.

      It is a little bit confusing, as the german note says: as of 4.6 and lower

      but the english note says: lower than 4.6

      so there is a little diffrence 😉

      But now i have the Problem, that the generated Stack-file from the solution manager is invalid:

      "# Error message set: 'Stack file is invalid: keep version w/o component upgrade'"
