Error installing MaxDB 7.6.03.09 on windows 32 bit on NW70 SR2 sapinst

MaxDB experts,

Hello. I am trying to install SAP NW70SR2 (JAVA AS) on MaxDB 7.6.03.09 with windows 32 bit OS. Brand new install, JAVA AS central system.

Our problem is in the SAPINST phase:

Install database server software

I see this in the sapinst.log file:

starting installation phase of package Base 7.6.03.09 32 bit

----


ERR: InstallRegistry::newPackage(): can't add Package "Base" -> "c:/sapdb/programs": already exists!

installation exited abnormally at Th, Apr 09, 2009 at 16:19:41

abortInstallation

MDB-07020 The database installer reported an error. Some database applications are probably still running. Check the log file sdbinst.log.

And this is in the bottom of the sdbinst.log file

The sdbinst.log has lots of other interesting info:

This is the top of the file:

getInstalledReleasesWin(): wrong version format

checking interferences to other packages... ok

I'm not sure why there is a version info problem.

This is a windows PC I'm trying to put this on. It's 32 bit so that is why I had to get the SR2 DVDs. The SR3 DVD won't let you install via 32 bit OS.

I downloaded all the software from OSS marketplace and some from our delivered DVDs:

We have these DVDs

32 BIT BS_2005_SR2_SAP_Installation_Master 51033208

32 BIT NW_7.0_SR2_Kernel_WINDOWS__LNX_X86 51033262

NW 7.0 SR2 SAP Installation Export 51032246

NW 7.0 SR2 SP09 Java based SW Comp 51032257

I pulled this down off the marketplace (in the NW70SR3 area)

32 BIT RDBMS_MAXDB_7.6.03_Build_09 51033492_10

I've searched all through OSS/SDN for someone who has this same issue. All our other systems are AIX/oracle so trouble-shooting MaxDB is completely new to me.

Can anyone point me into the right direction to get this figured out? I'm tried just re-running the install, same error. And removing the c:/sapdb/programs, no good.

Thanks!
