Install Sneak Preview on multiple drives

Hi all,

as per your knowledge, it is possible to install the sneak preview on multiple drives?

For example the instance on 😧 and the DB on an external drive G:?

I've tried, but it stops at Import ABAP phase.

Here is the extract from the log:

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)

Required system resources are missing or not available:
<installerdirectory>\SAPNWABAP701SR1_TRIAL\SAP_NetWeaver_701_SR1_Export\DATA_UNITS\EXP2 does not have valid structure or subdirectories.
<installerdirectory>\SAPNWABAP701SR1_TRIAL\SAP_NetWeaver_701_SR1_Export\DATA_UNITS\EXP3 does not have valid structure or subdirectories.

My hard disk is partioned as follows:

C:\ -> OS Directory (WinXP Pro SP2) + Programs

D:\ -> Documents and Settings + data

Then I've an external hard disk marked as G:

Installer is placed under D:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Job\NW701 - NSP\

These are the install options (proposed by the installer itself):

MaxDB Log Volumes - 2000KB - Under 😧

MaxDB Data Volumes - 4096KB (x4) - Under G:

Central Instance - Under G:

Of course the folder structure it's correct if explored.

The error does not occur if I choose to install everything on a single drive/partition (e.g. D:).

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks a lot,

i think you need to use Winrar to unpack the archives. There is another thread about this in the forum.,
