sapinst GUI does not start

Hi Gurus: I am starting an IDES installation on Windows 2008 R2 Server (x64), and getting the following pop up message: You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL. The framework asumes that control.xml or product.catalog has to be used but there exist now such files.If there exist a installation with a different startup filename please specify that filename via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL SAPinst is getting started. Please be patient ... starting gui server process: sapinstport: 21200 guiport : 21212 guistart : true command : "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\/bin\javaw.exe" -cp "C:/Users/ADMINI1/AppData/Local/Temp/1/sapinst_exe.2984.1312482787\jar\instgui.jar;C:/Users/ADMINI1/AppData/Local/Temp/1/sapinst_exe.2984.1312482787\jar\inqmyxml.jar" -Xmx256M -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200 guistart=true You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL in the directory F:/Downloads.

    command : "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\/bin\javaw.exe

    Your Java version is wrong. You have to use Jdk 1.4.2_32 is the latest supported by SAP.

      The issue was resolved by opening the cmd prompt and executing the sapinst.exe file by giving the full path at the prompt.

      Thanks,
