Installation Problem with Sneak Preview SP16

Hi folks,

as I was trying to install Sneak Preview NW04 SP16 Full Java version, I am facing a prbolem as below.

As a first step to install, when I clicked the SAPinst.exe, I got a screen whenin it asked me to enterthe host name and

the TCP/IP port to log on, with the default host and port filled in as "localhost", "21212" respectively. I accepted the above

default values and clicked on the logon button. Then, the next screen popped up with licence agreement, and once I clicked

on "I agree" button, I got the following error and could not proceed further.

"An error occurred during the installation of component SAP NetWeaver Sneak Preview'04 Support

Release 1 > Migration - Target System installation. Press the log view button to get extended error information or press OK

button to terminate the installation. Log files are written to C:\PROGRA1\SAPINS1\MW04SR1\WEBAS_~1\ONE_HOST".

In the log browser, which popped up later, I have noted the following three warnings.

"Error 5 ( Access is denied), in execution of of a "RegOpenKeyEx" function, line (67), with parameter


"The subkey 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\

Services\NSCService' does not exist on the 'localhost' host".

"The step setDefaults with step key J2EE_SystemCopy_OneHost|ind|ind|ind|WebAs|640|0|J2EE_SystemCopy|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|J2EE_EngineEnterpriseDialogs

|ind|ind|ind|WebAs|630|0|setDefaults was executed with statur ERROR".

And, when I clicked the View Log button, I got the following info.

SAPinst is getting started.

Please be patient ...

guiengine: no GUI connected; waiting for a connection on host VICKY, port 21212 to continue with the installation

guiengine: login in process.

SAPinst component stack:



Current script:


some scripting...which is very long.

I tried to re-install again, but faced with the same error. I was just wondering if that default values "localhost", "21212" must be

the reason and hence thought of changing the values while re-installing. But, to my surprise, I am not getting the screen

(which I got for the first time of installing) to enter host and port information to log on.

Please suggest on how to go further.

Thanks in advance.
