I try to instal the 64.bits release of CE on a windows 7 laptop, in order to evaluate the opportunity to change all laptops for my developers.
Unfortunately I systematicaly have the same error :
Unable to find any Java instances on the host. Installation will terminate now.
I run the sapinst from installation DVD : CE71SR5_ESR_IM_WIN_X86_64
I downloaded and installed the jdk-1_5_0_15-windows-amd64
I set the SAPINST_JRE_HOME environment variable to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15
I set the SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME to mypc
I set in hosts file the IP address 192.168.0.10 to mypc.
Why SAPINST is not able to find the java instances ?
Thanks for your help.
