Problem with SAP GUI installation

Former Member

when I tried to run the SAP GUI installation I got this error:

"Sorry, this self-extractor does not contain any embedded archive."

I'm running it in a VM with windows XP sp2. If I execute it in my windows 7 host machine it works as it should. It seems like there are some dll missing. Any ideas ?

Hi Kupali,

The link that you sent me required me to log in. I tried to register at Sap Service Marketplace but I don't have a customer id. What can I do ?
