Kernel upgrade shows SP Level 32 instead of Level 137
I downloaded the kernel exe and exedb files (level 137) as a part of
the Support Pack Stack 9 from maintenance optimizer.Our current level
of Kernel was 69 and the defined level in SP Stack 9 was 137. As a part
of the installation work, I extracted these files, stopped the sap
services, backed up the exe folder and overwrote the files in the
usr/sap/.../exe folder with the extracted files. When I restarted the
services, and logged on to the SAP gui and checked the Kernel
level, it shows level 32 which is very odd. I am not sure why is it
showing the downgraded version instead of the new version 137. I double checkd in the download area and confirmed that I
selected the correct platform and database for download. I believe that kernel upgarde is cumulative. I am wondering if I this is not the error or just a glitch and it might show the correct version after I upgrade ABAP/BASIS support pack. I will greately appreciate your any thoughts?

This is the wrong directory. You have to copy it on E:\usr\sap\SID\SYS\exe\uc\NTAMD4\run. sapcpe fle will copy all the binaries to the directory automatically on which you extracted. Do it once again and check with disp+work once again.
