Download for Windows Netweaver ABAP Trial available? minisap #ABAP_Trial

I'm searching for a Windows ABAP Trial. I can't seem to find anything. We're testing our BC-XOM implementation and that requires that SAP be able to directly execute two of our programs, so Linux in a VM will not solve our Windows testing problem. Some years back, I installed SAP Netweaver ABAP Trial 7.02 SP11 Win 64 bit Version on my Win 7 workstation, but my "saved" download for that has become corrupted. Our Windows developer wants to setup a copy on one of his test boxes and we'd like to retire two ancient (decade+ old?) Windows server boxes, so we need an installer. It need not be latest and greatest or have any features beyond a basic system.

The minisap license renewal page has

( ) NSP - SAP NetWeaver 7.x (Windows / MaxDB)

SAP NetWeaver Sneak Preview ABAP Edition from SDN

but the link just goes to the generic Developer Trials & Downloads page with search setup. I can't seem seem to find a suitable version. Help appreciated.

  • Please see Sandra's comment below. I also suspect this would be a license violation. If you're testing an interface with SAP then either your company or your client should provision a test SAP environment under their license and provide you with a connection.

    It may seem tempting and exhilarating to just bootstrap something on your own but be careful with this approach.

    Hi there

    I think the problem is that the older versions won't run on Windows 10 so no longer available. I'm not sure why running in a VM would be a problem as the back end could still run services from windows (e.g ABAP PROXY etc etc). Might need a bit of work but I'm sure it's do-able. If your Windows is as old as W7 it's worth changing anyway as there are so many security holes these days plus Windows 7 is reaching End of Life. Sometimes in these situations rather than just pressing on with legacy stuff it's better just to bite the bullet and find a technical "get around"

    Cheers

    Hi Rich,

    No, the latest AS ABAP dev edition is only available for Linux . I am also not a lawyer, so feel free to check the text of the license, but my (informal) understanding is that the dev edition is for trying out the language, not official tests.

    Best wishes,

    Julie Plummer.

    Hello,

    have you tried to log in as User SAP* and renew the License of your SAP Netweaver ABAP Trial 7.02 SP11 Win 64 bit Version installation? Important is that you use the SAP* User!

    Regards
