Installation of SAP NW 701 trial fails on 64 bit windows


I try to install the new trial on 64 bit windows. but it fails in phase 8 "Install database server software".

The sdbinst Message detail shows, that it tries to use i386 installation for max db.

In the folder where i find maxdb_i386 installation i find also an maxdb_x64 installation. Can I tell sapinst that it has to take 64 installtion? Any other ideas?

POP UP Message:

An error occurred while processing option SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SR1 including Enhancement Package 1 > SAP Application Server ABAP > MaxDB > Central System > Central System( Last error reported by the step :Caught ESAPinstException in Modulecall: sdbinst.log.).
