B1 SHR Folder Client Installation not Working

Hi,

Today when installing SAP B1 8.8 client onto end users machines I came across the error below when trying to install the client from the B1_SHR folder.

*"Error Reading Setup Initialization File"*

From what I have read this means that the Client Installation file is corrupted and no longer working. I need to finish installation of the client onto end users machines.

How can I install the client without the client.exe from the B1_SHR?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, you do not have option to install the client without the client.exe from the B1_SHR.

    You have to find a working version. This file need to have valid backup at all time.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Gordon is there anything I can do? I know that if I reinstall the SAP B1 Server is will recreate the B1_SHR folder, but wont this also lose all of the current SAP information?

    Gordon, when you say installation package, what exactly do you mean. I do not have a CD or anything, just the SAP Files that were loaded onto our server.

    I am really clueless when it comes to this problem and this is becoming a huge issue.

    I was able to install the client from the client file in the SAP Files, but upon trying to log onto SAP B1 the server is not found and I cannot access the database.

    Any ideas?

    I am really at a loss here.

    Check if you have the right version of SQL native client installed.

    Duplicated due to network error.
