BI 4.0 SP2 Installation Error: crheapalloc3.dll and crheapalloc.dll was not found.

I am trying to install SAP BI Platform 4.0 SP2 in Windows Server 2003 environment. I successfully installed SQL Server 2008 and created database and its subsequent ODBC connection for each of the Audit and CMS database.

I then start the Full installation of SAP BI 4.0 SP 2 Server with using existing database and point to the ODBC connection that I had created earlier.

The setup starts fine but at the end of the installation it throws the following message as per screenshot attached.

"CMS.exe - Unable to Locate a Component"

"This application has failed to start because crheapalloc3.dll was not found. Re-intalling the application may fix this problem."

When I click OK same error appears with crheapalloc.dll.

The setup continues and finishes but when I click on Finish Setup button i get following messages.

After this the CMS is not running and the files in the installation directory are lot more less then usual. I end up with incomplete installation which is of no use. Please help if someone is familiar with this error.

I'd recommend you install BI4.0 SP04 or SP05 as these are the only actively maintained codelines.

You may also want to check the compatibility matrix to ensure your server O/S platform is supported at
