  • Hi Benjamin,

    I was able to follow till step 3. But I could not find the zip files as mentioned in the step 4.

    Can you please help.



    • Hi Atul,

      Please read the further installation steps, that is the prequisities step to install the BW plug-in's, then while installing the HANA side you need to indicate the path to the location where you have placed your BW plug-in's.

  •  Hi Benjamin,


    we see that SAPBASISAIE00_4-70000003 and SAPBWMTE00_2-70000330 files are archived in software downloads, do we have any alternative solution for this.




    • Hi Mani VS,

      I believe for archived software's you can contact SAP with a valid S-User and they will provide you a link to download or a zip folder that can be share with your account manager.

      I will check my backup directory if I still have the software then I'll share.

  • From Where the mentioned zip files can get, whether they are available to download or this is available with installation pack, also if there is any other solution kindly let us know



    • Hi Muhammad,

      Thank you for your question, the Zip is a pre-package content that is download separately to an directory of your choice on your local machine or server. Once there you indicate the path to this directory when setting up the plug-in.


      Thank you.
