WAS 6.40 installation problem with Win XP PL locale + Service Pack

Hello,

I have problems with installing WAS 6.40.

1. I started installation, then spainst asked to install service pack for Win XP.

2. I installed service pack (I have Polish, not English, locale (PL))

3. After restarting I started spainst, and it claims I have no Service Pack installed

in properties of the system there is an infromation that the system is "Windows XP (Dodatek Service Pack)"

So the service pack is installed, but sapinst doesn't see it. Does anyone have had such problem? Any solution?

thanks in advance

Patryk

    Hello.

    This is a little strange problem, but it's easy solveable.

    Issue is bound to polish locale of Windows OS. Installation software check OS and ServicePack version by comparing system name to internally stored strings. Those strings are different in different languages..

    The following file is to be changed:

    <SAP_INST>\SAPINST\NT\I386\ADA\control.xml

    <SAP_INST> – directory where You unpacked installer archive.

    in line 44218, change:

    var uname = info.getOSUname();

    to:

    var uname = "Micorsoft Windows NT [Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 1] ";
