Hi Sriram thanks for the quick reply.

The log dont have any additional information.

Logged in as SIDADM

as i am in execution phase im not really looking for complete restart untill it is that necessary

This is how i was ale to just solve

start->run ->reedit -> enter

goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER and then environment folder within it.

there you have to find  "PATH" i didnt have that there so, i compared the user SIDADM variables in environmental variables and added the same path and repeated the SUM step and it worked for me.
