Error installing NetWeaver Trial for Developers in Windows Azure instance

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install the NetWeaver Trial for Developers in a Windows Azure instance but the installation fails during the "Start Instance" phase. The dev_w0 log says the error happens when loading a .dll with LoadLibrary and the error message says "Access Denied".

Anyone managed to install this trial on Azure?

Btw, before I managed to reach this stage I made the following changes:

- changed hostname to shorter string (install restriction)

- Increase VM size to 20480 (install warning)

- Created inbound and outbound rules for File and Printer Sharing (to succeed in creating shared folders)

    Hi Luiz,

    Did you check the permissions on the DLL shown in the error? Maybe the startup user cannot access it.

    Best regards,

      Hi Duncan,

      Yes, I checked the DLL permissions and it was accessible by the group Administrator, and I was running the installation with a user that is a member of the Administrator group.

      I also checked the permissions of the 2 share folders created by SAP installation. Both have full access rights to the Administrator group.
