    I found the problem.

    I try to run manually:

    D:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\exe/sapstartsrv.exe -r -p D:\usr\sap\J2E\SYS\profile\START_JC00_SAPTOP002 -s J2E -n 00 -U SAPTOP002\SAPServiceJ2E -P XXXXX -e SAPTOP002\j2eadm

    - XXXXX is the pw setted during the installation

    - I removed the flag -q from the original command in the log for a detailed log

    The result is ok, service is running.

    Then I logon as SAPTOP002\j2eadm and rerun the command.

    A message alert me for a problem in registry authorization for SOFTWARE\SAP.

    Before installing WAS I installed sapgui.

    I don't know why but the SAP directory in registry wasn't modificable from "administrators".

    I changed the authorization and then continued the installation.

    Now I'm installing next step...

    I hope this can be helpful for someone

    Ciao

    Sam
