Hi,

I have been trying to delete a workspace from DTR but have had no luck yet. I have followed what was mentioned in the note 855537 and also checked sap help. When i try to open it as a webfolder, i cannot open it and it says cannot open the link as a webfolder. I also tried using dtr.bat and dtrshell.bat from the tools folder for NWDS, but when i double click on them it says "specified path does not exist". I checked the paths and everything looks fine. Here is the path that has been maintained on my system:

ALLUSERSPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users

APPDATA=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data

ClusterLog=C:\WINDOWS\Cluster\cluster.log

CommonProgramFiles=C:\Program Files\Common Files

COMPUTERNAME=SAFEPC

ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

dbms_type=sql

DIR_LIBRARY=D:\usr\sap\JDI\SYS\exe\uc\NTI386

FP_NO_HOST_CHECK=NO

HOMEDRIVE=C:

HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\Administrator

JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.2_09\bin

LOGONSERVER=

NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS=2

NWDITOOLLIB=C:\Program Files\SAP\IDE\IDE70\eclipse\tools\lib

PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE=x86

TMP=C:\DOCUME1\ADMINI1\LOCALS~1\Temp

USERDOMAIN=SAFEPC

USERNAME=Administrator

USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator

windir=C:\WINDOWS

Any help in getting me delete the DTR workspace would be highly appreciated and rewarded. I did look at the other threads and have followed almost everything that has been mentioned there, but in vain.

Thanks

May be you cannot open the folder as "Web Folder" because you do not have WebDAV support enabled on this mashine.

Please see here :

http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/9a772ae5-3864-411e-98d6-9700eb3acb8c1033.mspx...

Also the steps from MS website:

To check the status, or to enable the WebClient service on a WebDAV client machine

1. From the Start menu, point to Administrative Tools, and click Computer Management.

2. In the details pane, double-click Services and Applications.

3. Double-click Services.

4. Scroll down, right-click WebClient, and click Properties.

5. In the Startup type list box, click Automatic.

6. Click Apply.

7. In the Service status section, click Start.

8. Click OK.

Then procees with the steps bellow

Workspace Folders are those folders which contain workspaces as their members. The standard DTR client in SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio doesn't support the deletion of workspace folders. The deletion of those folders from outside the developer studio can make the Developer Studio unuseable. Every Developer Studio which refers (by DC configurations, DTR clients) to a workspace folder may get corrupted if the folders are deleted.

But if it can be assured that no Developer Studio refers to a workspace folder anymore (by removing the development configurations refering to the folder) there is a way to delete the folder. This can be done with Internet Explorer. Please follow these steps to delete the folder:

1. Find out the URL under which the folder is accessible (

e.g. http://test:50000/dtr/ws/XYZ/test.sap.com_HM_PVC/dev)

2. Start Internet Explorer

3. In the menue select "File->Open" and enter the URL of step 1. Make sure to check the box "Open as Web Folder" and press OK.

4. In the upcoming window you see an Explorer-like view on the content of Workspace Folder. Select in the menue "View->Go To->Up one level".

5. Right-Click on the Icon representing the workspace folder and choose delete.

Now the workspace folders are deleted. Also folders on top of workspaces folders can be deleted in this way.

A precondition for deleting a workspace folder, or a folder on top of it, is that it must be empty. If the folder to be deleted is not empty

the deletion will not succeed. This means that, in case when there is

a hierarchy of folders to be deleted, it has to be done bottom-up.
