Netweaver trial error: Path component contains reserved character (''):


Hi guys!

After having failed my first ever Netweaver 7 64bit install on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, I decided to give it another go on a Windows 2008 R2 machine.

But this time it worse. Did not even make it to the password section.

Right after choosing the Java Runtime Environment, I get the following error:

An error occurred while processing option SAP NetWeaver 7.0 including Enhancement Package 2 > SAP Application Server ABAP > MaxDB > Central System > Central System( Last error reported by the step :Path component contains reserved character (''): ).

You can now:

Choose Retry to repeat the current step.

Choose Log Files to get more information about the error.

Stop the option and continue with it later.

Log files are written to C:\Program Files/sapinst_instdir/NW702/AS-ABAP/ADA/CENTRAL/.

So - which path contain a reserved character - and which character? ('') does not tell me so much 😔
