The following documentation is designed as a walkthrough for users to install and configure SAP's Mobile Platform SDK on Windows. As the newest release of SAP's SMP series, I took interest in 3.0 to keep up with the ever-changing world of mobility. In my first attempt to install the software, I struggled and needed SAP assistance to complete the task. However, it is my hope that the documentation below is thorough enough for anyone looking to install the software. Please feel free to leave comments regarding any helpful hints you may have. Good luck!
