4.3          To unzip .SAR file

Download SAPCAR.exe from:

The Simplest Way is get the SAPCAR-GUI so as to execute SAPCAR.exe file:

Get these files onto VMware Machine in one folder.

So as to share files on your local desktop with Virtual Machine, from Virtual Machine Open Computer -> Network -> “click to change” -> “Yes turn on the network discovery and file sharing”

executed 51043228_7(part of media file downloaded above) and save all the extracted file into a folder. These file will be required while installing PO.

Once all the Files are on Virtual Machine, execute sapcar-gui downloaded from above and select file SWPM10SP01_3-20009707.SAR -> click on extract all and save all the files into a single folder

    Thanks for sharing this process Sunil.

    The NetWeaver CE environment was released in a similar way as a VMWare appliance image. In my opinion this would be ideal for developers and consultants.

    Also, this solution can be better than the cloud service because it can be hosted behind your own firewall without having to configure VPN to/from the AWS cloud.
