SAP GUI Package

Hi Folks,

I want to deploy SAP GUI 7.30 in our standard Windows 7 image. We use Microsoft's SCCM tool to build PCs over the network so don't wish to use the SAP deployment server.

The full SAP GUI 7.30 media when copied to my hard drive takes up about 2GB of space. I have been looking at ways to reduce the size of this in our build.

I followed the instructions to create an installation package using NwSapSetupAdmin.exe. The package comes to 181MB but the only way I can get the package to run is if it is accompanied by the all set-up files and folders.

In attempting to reduced the size of the installation I tried installing the package and only including the contents of SAP GUI 7.30\NW_7.0_Presentation_\PRES1\BI_PreCalServer\Setup folder but this fails.

Has anyone any advice on how to do this? I can't find any information on it anywhere.

I realised what I was doing wrong shortly after I posted.

I had created a Single File Installer which I referenced above - this is 181MB.

I was trying to call this with NwSAPSetup.exe /package=singlefileinstallername.exe

But all I need is to call singlefileinstallername.exe by itself.
