Install your own SAP NetWeaver ABAP system

The use cases where you want to have your own SAP NetWeaver ABAP system available on your laptop are various and the benefits are obvious. The why can be described in a simple phrase:

Learning by doing

The doing is the problem. From time to time SAP releases a downloadable trial version, the rest of the time you can opt for a cloud hosted version (CAL). If this fits your needs: great. If you want to install a system from scratch, you`ll have to download the installer files from SAP Service Marketplace.


As long as you have a user with download permission, just go ahead and have fun. A newly installed NW system comes with a temporary license, allowing you to play around for the system for a while.

In case you want to install a system on your own, below are some links that I hope help you in setting up your very own SAP NetWeaver ABAP system. I created the blogs while installing my test systems. Don`t expect a 100% checked how-to, I am a Java guy, not working as Basis. Nevertheless, the information provided should give you the right help and orientation on how to get a system up and running. It sure helps me when I have to set up a new system, and I hope you get some benefit out of this content.

More blogs to be published soon.

      The link should work again. My internet provider, lets say, is not very customer oriented when it comes to uptime.

      Hi thx for your answer but in the meanwhile I installed it successfully on a win12 server and it is running perfectly.

      Tobias, this blog does not really make much sense to me, as there currently is no downloadable version of SAP available?

      There is always a downloadable version of SAP NetWeaver available. You only need to have an S-User with download permission for the installer files on service market place.

      my internet provider is now treating me as a commercial company and they now block my 443 port. Now they want me to get a 1000X more expensive contract for 1MB/s. I am a victim of my success, too much inbound and outbound traffic 🙁
