      I had the same issue - I deleted all the previous downloads and downloaded to a new folder - This issue occurred to me - if there was some interruption in the download and I had to continue from there.

      SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.50 SP2 Developer Edition has failed installation. The Sybase license has expired. My time was wasted. The next time you specify the date when the license expires otherwise it will cost you to download and waste time.

      Hi

      I am getting an error during the setup of SAP NW AS ABAP 750 SP02 Download, I have followed all the steps on Suse but after some minutes installing stuff, the setup is aborted with this error

      Abort execution because of

      Step returns modlib.jslib.caughtException

      Any hint is welcomed!

       


      Edited on Aug19th: as read in another thread, this error is caused by expiration date of license.

      Hi everyone,

      Since we now have 6 blogs referring to 2 different versions of the download developer edition, blog comments are becoming unmanageable. In addition, searching through blog comments is very difficult for other users, resulting in many duplicate issues.

      From now on, please DO NOT post a blog comment if you require troubleshooting.

      Please post on the ABAP Development forum : https://www.sap.com/community/topic/abap.html , using the hashtag #ABAP_Trial. I promise to work through the backlog here, but cannot answer any further questions.

      Thank you for your understanding.

      Best wishes,

      Julie Plummer.

      SAP Product Management.

      Hi Nabi,

      Yes, We are working on the CLoud Appliance version first. When that is up and running, then we want to work on the Download. I'll blog (shamelessly) as soon as these are available.

However I cannot access using HANA studio with the BW plugins , its says underlying database is Sybase IQ and it need HANA DB. Without HANA studio I am unable to create new BW objects.

      Hi Sudip, Yes, the DL version of the developer edition is ASE only.

      We also offer a cloud appliance, on ASE OR HANA:

      Dear all,

      As of now, I will not be able to moderate comments on this blog. Therefore, comments entered after today, 26th July, 2018 will have to be ignored. (I will try to process existing comments as soon as I can, but there is a backlog.)

      From now on, please ask your question in the ABAP Development Community forum:

      https://www.sap.com/community/topic/abap/all-content.html

      If it is an issue involving ABAP developer edition, remember to add the hashtag #ABAP_Trial.

      Please do not use comments in the blogs to ask tech support questions :

      • It makes it difficult for other users to find similar issues in future, which leads to many duplicated errors.
      • Very few people follow these blogs, so you will not get help from the vast majority of the community

      I apologize for this, but there is no capacity to monitor all blogs for all released versions.

      Best wishes Julie.
