NWDS CE 7.2 plugin download halts after some %


Hi All,

I am facing a problem when i try to install CE 7.2 NWDS.

1. I have installed JDK 1.6 for it and downloaded the file from the SMP

2. After unzipping the file to a location on my desktop, I click on the SAPNetweaverDeveloperStudio under the folder "NWDS_platform\eclipse"

3. It prompts for a workspace for which a new workspace is assigned.

4. Once the NWDS opens, it prompted for "Javaw exe not found". I manually gave the path of the "Javaw.exe".

5. After that, Navigated to the Help->SoftwareUpdates-> find & install

6. Entered the necessary credentials for accessing the SMP.

7. The download of the plugins starts and progress happens upto to certain % (which is inconsistent, sometimes 4, 8 etc)

8. After some %, the progress halts and does not proceed even if the system is left the whole day.

I have tried this activity many times and every time i end up with the same result. Please let me know if anything is missed out in the process.

I also have a NWDS CE 7.1 SP06 installed on my machine. Is that causing any problems?

Just for information, there are many colleagues of mine who are running with both the installations.
