Hi Ibrahim,

That message means that you haven't downloaded all the required files. The software comes as a set of compressed files, and spans them all. The EXE file you start with is only part of it. When it's done, it looks for the next file in the sequence, which will be a RAR file, and that is what you are missing. There will be several RAR files and one EXE file for each component you download.

Hi Matt,

that is meaning i need to download again this file


When you download the software, you will notice several large files available to download. Usually one is either a ZIP file or an EXE file, and then there may be one or more RAR files that are related. For instance, for NetWeaver 7.5, the Java based components are spread across two files, 51050829_1.EXE and 51050829_2.RAR. This is done because each file is intended to fit upon one standard DVD -- these are DVD images, even though you're just downloading them as files. So, you put all the files together in the same folder or directory, and execute the first one. When it has finished extracting its own components, it will automatically look for the next DVD image file (*_2.RAR) and begin extracting that one.

So, if you didn't download them all the first time, you'll need to download the missing ones. If you did, then you need to ensure they're all in the same folder when you start the extraction.
