Had you been paying too much for getting your hands on Process Orchestration hosted on AWS? Now here it’s another chance to try Process Orchestration for 3 Months(trial License) without feeling heat on pocket.

Following are the Steps:

  1. Download and Install VMware player as per the OS (I have used one for Windows)

Select the option “Installer Disc Image file”

Increase the Disk Size to 100GB and click “Next”


  Default Memory 1GB is not sufficient to Run PO. It requires at least 4 GB Memory. Click on “Customize Hardware”


Click on “Memory” on left pan and increase the size to at least 4GB and then click on “close”.


Summery page depicting the system configuration will appear. Click on “Finish”. After few Minuts Windows Server 8 (R2) will be installed.


Administrator user will get created by default and it will ask change the password on first login.


Now to activate 180 days trial version Right click on computer-> Properties ->Activate Windows

4.              Preparing for Installation of PO:

Navigate to Service Marketplace (S-User Required) and follow the path:

Installations and Upgrades –> A-Z index –> N –> SAP NetWeaver –> SAP EHP1 FOR SAP NETWEAVER 7.3 –> Installation and Upgrade.


             I had installed it with MaxDB as database

(Please note that it is for 64 bit OS)

4.2          Download “Software Provisioning MGR”

Navigate to Service Marketplace (S-User Required) and follow the path: Installations and Upgrades –> A-Z index –> N–> SAP NETWEAVER – >  SAP EHP1 FOR SAP NETWEAVER 7.3 -> SOFTWARE PROVISIONING MGR 1.0


Download:  SWPM10SP01_3-20009707.SAR  Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SP 01

4.3          To unzip .SAR file

Download SAPCAR.exe from:

Navigate to Service Marketplace (S-User Required) and follow the path: Support Packages and Patches – SSAPCARSAPCAR 7.20

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


Now open the directory wherein the files extracted using SAPCAR-gui are stored and execute sapinst.exe


Select the option as shown below so as to install Process Orchastration

    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.
