Problem installing Sneak Preview at step "Deploy SDM/J2EE"



This is not a new topic, however I think it will be better to open a new question thread.

My intention is to install "Sneak Preview Edition for SAP Web AS 6.40" which I have downloaded from SDN web site. But the installation aborts at step "Deploy SDM/J2EE" with an error.

My system is an MS Windwos XP SP 2 with 256 MB RAM. I know, RAM is less than the required but it just warns and goes on installation. So, this seems not the problem.

Isn't it just executing the installer program. What settings must I made and where are these written?

At the older thread Benny Schaih told about the SQL Server version. But what is the relation and how should I check? (too dummy???)

Here is the related log entries:
