Netweaver 7.02 Trial - WRITE_FAILED error


Whilst installing the Netweaver 7.02 Trial version in a clean Windows XP installation (running in a VMWare image) the installation is failing at the final step (Run ABAP reports) with a WRITE_FAILED message. I cannot figure out how to fix the issue. There is plenty of disk space as I have allocated 120GB to the image. Any hints would be much appreciated.

The error as reported in the installation log:

ERROR      2010-12-22 09:35:21.345 [iaxxrfcimp.cpp:1083]
FRF-00025  Unable to call function. Error message: Exception condition "WRITE_FAILED" raised.


With help from this thread Sneak Preview NW- ABAP - 2004s. Installation Error - Step 24 I have now solved the problem. I logged in to the trail system using DDIC user then modified the instance profile (tcode RZ10) to add parameter DIR_TRANS and point it to
<computer name>\sapmnt\trans

Then I re-ran the installation and the final step completed successfully.

Thanks and regards,
