I encounter an problem when I try to uninstall the EP of my NW04 (ABAP+JAVA, Oracle). The message indicates that it cannot find the EP folder. Did I make anything wrong?

PS: I can use VA to connect the SAP Instance with no problem.

Anyone experienced that before? Please give me a hand, plz.

BR, Sam

As far as I know in NW'04 no entries are made into the Windows registry so everything about the installed software etc. is determined on run time based on the scripts you execute and where you execute them. So it should be easy for you to locate where the scripts go wrong.

You could start by pasting the directory names you used to install WebAs and then the directory names (and their content) that you actually have on your hard drive.
