NW700 Non Unicode System Copy


I try to perform a system copy of a non unicode NW700 installation on Win2003.

For this new installation I try to use SWPM 1.0 SP1 NW7.0x.

At the beginning I get the option, to disable Unicode.

But when SWPM aks for th Kernel, I give the pathe to 7.20 NUC (DVD 51045931_3), which I just downloaded from SAP.

But I get the error:

     You entered:  (see above)

     FOUND label SAP:AKK:720:DVD_Kernel:SAP Kernel 720

     BUT NEEDE THE label SAP:AKK:72:UKERNEL:*:Windows_x86_64:*

Does anybody now, how to get a freshly installed non unicode system copy?

Hi Johannes,

There is a workaround. 

Hope you have Unicode kernel DVD for the installation. Just replace the SAPEXEDB.SAR and SAPEXE.SAR files in the Unicode Kernel DVD with non-Unicode Kernel SAR files.

During installation provide path of Unicode Kernel DVD.

It will work.

Hope this helps.
