Test Drive WAS 6.20 Install fails when creating XUSER file for User BSPADM

I thought I'd make a shorter thread of my problem with this install.

I have previously erased a functioning 6.10 and 6.40 WAS install from my PC.

The 6.20 install goes OK up to the point where the log indicates that it is trying to create an XUSER File. The online error message shows: "Error: Wrong name or password!"

I think this is the command that's being run at that point:














Using dbmcli, I see that there only three users at that point: control, superdab, and domain.

Can anyone tell me how how to move this installation forward? I'm only 58 percent done at this point, and based on what it's taken to get this far, I'm dreading the next 42!

    You're installing 6.20?

    What kind of installation is this???

    Please tell me the full version and media from that you install.

      I'm installing the 6.20 Web AS Test Drive. I have managed to fight my way through the install by rigorous manual deletion of all SAPDB registry entries, and the Test Drive is now installed and running.

      As a side note, can't SAP come up with a bullet-proof uninstall? I'm not the first one that's had terrific problems trying to unistall the db and reinstall.

      Thanks for your help...

    How rigourous ? I'm still struggling. From the register I have deleted the SAP DB Tech directory in HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ( and then the C:\sapdb directory ). Still the same problem. Do I have to delve into HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT ?
