7.01 trial nstall still running after 4 Hrs ???? 2GB RAM XP machine
The latest trial netweaver 7.01 seems to take AGES and AGES to install.
I Am loading this up on to a 2GB Windows XP Pro machine
After 4 hrs I'm STILL in Phase 18 of 27 Import ABAP
Mesage underneath -- Import Monitor jobs running 3 , waiting 20 completed 5 failed 0 total 28.
Task manager in windows still shows activity so system isn't "hanging".
Does it really take so long -- I installed the previous TRIAL version on a 1GB machine in only just over 1 Hour so something has obviously changed.
Will let it run for maybe another 2 hours then I'll go back to the previous release.
