Are you able to run the java at command level ,

Type : javac in the command prompt , if you are able to execute java ,then the path given in the env variable is right otherwise you have to set proper env vaiable:

Try this: in the user variables give:

Hi Amnat,

Please edit hosts file from location

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

Add

<Ip address> <hostname>

example.

10.234.188.54 xyz123

Also add Java_Home to System Variables

Right click My computer > Properties > Advance > Environment Variables > New >

Variable Name: JAVA_HOME

Variable Value: <Specify Java Directory>

Ex. C:\j2sdk1.4.2_16-x64

Regards,

Jeff

Hello,

The problem is ost likely with the spaces in the path to your temp directory.

Can you please create a new temp directory, something like C:\temp and change the path to it?

Sapinst often has problems evaluating C:\Documents and Settings

After this restart sapinst and it should proceed,

Regards,

David
