Installing standalone SAP Gateway on Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello all,

I am trying to install the SAP Gateway (stand alone) on a new installation of Windows Server 2008 R2.

I have downloaded SAPInst (the standalone SAPInst from the Marketplace) but when I try to start the executable it quits out with the following error

"You start the installation without specifying a startup file via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL in the directory C:/usr. The framework asumes that control.xml or product.catalog has to be used but there doesn't exist such files.If there exist an installation with a different startup filename please specify that filename via SAPINST_CONTROL_URL."

I am starting it by running the full path from the command line.

Am I missing extra content I need? I saw a download for SAP Netweaver Gateway, but this was just a .PAT file. I need the full standalone SAP gateway since it is required for a proprietary program we run.

Does anyone know what I need to download to get it installed on my Windows Server? Do I need to download a full installation master for Windows?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Ben,

    First you download the Installation Master DVD and use the sapinst.exe file from Installation Master DVD to install.

    You also need to check the variable SAPINST_CONTROL_URL.

    For more detail. Please go through the below Inst Guide Standalone Gateway on Windows
