Upgrade from NW 7 to NW 7.03



I am testing an upgrade from Upgrade from NW 7 (ECC 6.0) to NW 7.03 (ECC 6.0 EHP6) on a test system, using SUM10SP06.

Source System is,

Ecc 6.0 (SAP_BASIS-700-Level 0014; SAP_ABA-700-Level 0014)


Windows 2008 R2 SP1

I have downloaded required media manually from Market place.

Now, I am stuck at "select target step" where it asking for XML file path or manually prepared directory.

I have tried by choosing the local directory where I had downloaded & extracted the media.

I am getting error message as per following,

while trying to invoke the method java.lang.String.equals(java.lang.Object) of an object loaded from local variable 'nextName'


DETECT define_target define-target-dialog define-target-source class java.lang.NullPointerException

Kindly guide me how to solve this & move ahead.

Kind rgds,

Ashwin Mane
