Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04 install/uninstall issues


I tried to install Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04

on my home laptop and despite checking/fulfilling all the requirements the installation did not complete successfully.

After hanging at step 8 of 24 for more than 1 hours I killed the installation and attempted to restart it. Unfortunately I could not proceed further neither with install nor uninstall since a gui type logon screen (with host name and port pre-filled) came up that I could not get through by trying all the different combinations that I could think of.

Additionally as a result I lost my internet connectivity, I am getting since DNS error messages. Ping seems to be working fine and I am trying now to debug what the cause is.

Any ideas will be appreciated (especially in restoring the connectivity).

    If you could deliver more details, this might help.

    You should be able to stop the installation with a button shown there. If you are asked to logon to something, then this can only be the Administrator user and password you have installed just before.

      I am also having the problems:

      My environment is Win2K,3GB RAM,80GB HDD. Trying to install WAS 6.40. I have installed it on another same type of server and it runs OK but on this perticular server its giving me following error.

      When I click on SAPInst it says main class not found. After this if I retry is says, port 21212 in use?. Any clues how to get around this problem?.

      Any promt reply appreciated.

    I have problem with both installing and uninstalling Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04.

    While installing i encountered this problem:

    "It says: This computer's host name is 'abc' but a reverse lookup returned 'localhost'. This will lead to problems later on when starting the Web Application Server. You can correct this proble by inserting a line: '127.0.01 abc' into the host file 'C:
    WINDOWS\system32\driver\etc\hosts'. Do this now so that you can continue the installation."

    And while unstalling this problem came out:

    "It says: Application failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

    Please advise.

    I got the same messeage but after I did the changes according to the error message (put your ip and name instead of locahost, leave your locahost as it is), after that few times it showed the same message again after couple of restarts , I got this fixed it proceeded fine, but failed at step 21 or something pointing to java installation jars, I will post the message after getting home.
