We are replacing SP01 with SP04, so please do not try to download this version anymore.
I will update the relevant blogs accordingly.
Thanks for this!
Just wanted to say that I was able to successfully install it on OpenSUSE Leap 15.0 in Hyper-V.
Oooh, interesting. This is not something I have tried. If you want to do a short blog on this, with screenshots, any pitfalls, etc, I WILL publish.
You are in luck, it's the same procedure as in 7.51, just without the ASE license swap. Link
The hostname check skip is also not needed anymore.
I'll adjust it sometime soon to be more 7.52 focused.
I too successfully installed on OpenSUSE Leap 15.0 on Virtual Box. I had few issues, I tried multiple times. Below are the issues I faced during the installation.
Unfortunately, because of multiple trial and error trials, I don’t have any screen shots.
1. Good to know that it works with Leap 15.0 too.
2. We covered partitioning setup here in the official PDF, basically the same as Fabian :
Newbies’ Guide: Installing SAP AS ABAP 752 SP01 on Linux – Virtual Box
Newbies’ Guide: Installing SAP AS ABAP 7.52 SP01 on Linux – VMWare
you saved my life, i was stuck at license agreement.
I had the same problem. @Julie: Maybe it would be a good idea to enter the information how to get out of the licence agreement again. Took me some time till i read this here.
We are thankfull for allowing downloading SAP developer editions. I can say this is really important growing for SAP developer community.
Unfortunatelly in the Readme is still the wrong password. It's not Apll1ance but Down1oad for all users!
Aaaargh. Thanks for letting me know, Uwe. I’ll edit the blogs and check the Newbie Guides as soon as possible. I’ll also inform the team obviously.
Great work Julie and thanks for doing this.
When you good folks get a chance it would be worth updating this link too...
Yes, that link is obsolete. The site pointing to it ("Trials and Downloads") has now been updated.
Best wishes Julie.
Hi Fabian, hi all,
It’s 752, SP01.
Also, please note : There is an error in the Guides: They are pointing to the download site for 751. very sorry – the correct site is here:
I’ll fix the PDFs asap.
The trial downloads have all moved to https://developers.sap.com/trials-downloads.html (the above link also redirects there), but I cannot find 752 SP01 on the new site. (Thought I might use it while we wait for the link for SP04, section 10 to be fixed).
Yes, for capacity reasons, we are not able to support both SP01 and SP04. Therefore, we are -replacing- SP01 with SP04.
Sorry for the inconvenience. I hope that repairing the issue should not take too long. As soon as I can, I will post the official announcement.
Thank you Julie.
why? I can't find any reference to SP02 in the blog. It is SP01. From the Status screen:
Hi Fabio, hi all,
In fact, this is a misprint.It should be SP01. Sorry, I cannot currently edit blogs with my user.
Some users have experienced an error downloading: “You are not authorized to download this file” or similar. One user solved this by downloading in Firefox, not Chrome.
Can you please try this, if you get this issue?
If that fails, try contacting support team from link below
Do NOT add a comment here, for 3 reasons:
Thanks and best wishes,
I have 2 questions. I currently have a Linux Workstation that has quad core processor with plenty of power and 32 Gig of memory running OpenSuse Leap 15. Is there any advantage to installing this in a VM versus directly on the machine? Also will a version of the ABAP 7.52 developer edition be released on SAP HANA in the future like what is currently available for the ABAP 7.51 developer edition.
No, there is no real advantage to using the VM. The guide is only for members who are used to Windows, taking their first steps in a Linux VM.
It is unlikely that we will release a download dev edition for the full HANA install, since HANA is not small ;-). (This is not available as download for 7.51 either.) What is available for 7.51, and we are working on for 7.52, is a CAL version. This will be available here asap:
Thanks for the clarification. I saw the SAP Netweaver AS ABAP 7.51 SP02 on SAP HANA listed in the Trials and Download list. I guess that I didn't read it closely enough to see that it was a CAL instance instead of a trial download.
I have downloaded the ABAP 752 SP01 and after run command to install, I do not know how to agree the SAP COMMUNITY DEVELOPER License to pass this step. I can not find any button to be clicked or choose.
Please help!! Furthermore, there are 02 libraries not found:
Do you want to continue?
Proceeding with the installation
Error: libaio: shared library not found
Error: libstdc++: shared library not found
Error: libnsl: shared library not found
Do you want to continue regardless of the missing dependencies? yes/no: YES
To install this TestDrive you have to accept the SAP COMMUNITY DEVELOPER License (DEV)
Thanks & Best Regards
First, check if each of the missing dependencies are there, using zypper:
sudo zypper search libaio
If not, then install each one:
sudo zypper install libaio.
Repeat this for each missing dependency.
When they are installed, then run command to install again.
Accept the license (y), then escape from the license text file using :q [that is, colon+q]
It may be helpful to know more about zypper before you continue. Try here:
I have the same problem and I was successful to solve for libaio. But not for libstdc neither libnsl.
sudo zypper search libstdc
one by one: sudo zypper install libstdc2, then for libstdc-devel...
Error: libstdc++: shared library not found
Error: libnsl: shared library not found
Thank you very much for your help.
I will check with colleagues, but this is actually an openSUSE problem. Can you please post this in the openSUSE forum: openSUSE Forum ?
Or check out the SAP on Linux forum: SAP Community SAP on Linux Forum ?
Sorry I could not help, but this does not sound specific to the #ABAP_Trial.
It is my fault. You can ignore the error messages. Sorry about that.
I added "set -o pipefail" to the install.sh and I run "ldconfig -p | grep stdc++". The result is 137 even though grep finds a match, because grep closes the pipe ASAP, hence ldconfig has no valid file descriptor for writing and dies with SIGPIPE.
The proper fix for this awkward issues is to write ldconfig output to a temporary file. It will come with the next download.
I was stuck at that too till I desperately hit all buttons on my keyboard. Finally the Q key worked.
After you are done reading the Agreement hit the Q Key on your keyboard and it will close the document and present you with the option to accept the agreement. Just hit the Y key afterwards and you should be fine with that.
This worked for me as well. Thanks for posting.
Is there a way to import standard tables like VBAK, VBAP, MARA, etc. in this server?
Hi, Arkadeep, You can use a transport request like any other system.
However, none of the Suite functions / transactions will be available.
I have been trying to import the transactions. But unable to do so.
It would be very helpful, if i get some suggestions.
The purpose of the AS ABAP developer edition is to enable developers to learn about ABAP language and tools. It is not intended that business content, eg Business Suite transactions or tables, be imported. Sorry, but this is entirely own risk.
Thank you so much for clarification.
I was able to get this loaded and it looks great. When trying to create a program, it is asking for a Developer Key. How do we get that key?
First : Did you delete all your licenses, before you installed the new one?
If so, the developer key is in the table DEVACCESS.
You can check this in transaction SE16 -> Table = DEVACCESS .
If that fails, open a normal SAP GUI Transaction in SAP GUI – eg SE80. Create a new object (eg data element). Paste the key in there.
If you log out and log back in, the key should now work in Eclipse / ADT (!).
Thank you. It was strange though, I deleted my Slicense entry even though it was still valid and installed a new one (with same expiry date). Once that was done, I was able to create new objects without any further action.. The Developer key was in the system and worked fine with a new slicense entry.
Yes, that's a peculiarity of the free dev edition. It allows us to save resources, but makes the process less flexible.
Good to know thanks
Earlier I had installed trial 7.51 and tried out the BOPF transaction with action button listed on
But when I installed the latest version 7.52 and tried the same the action button to SET_TO_PAID did not appear - I could however execute the action in BOPF test mode but not in the Fioir app.
This is a general ABAP dev question. Please post on the ABAP Development forum : https://www.sap.com/community/topic/abap.html
There are MANY more people who can help you there.
UPDATE, 2018 Dec 18 : Either that, or the example files have been removed. Sometimes this happens. I am sorry, but that is a limitation of the fact that it is free. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Could we please get a link to the ASE license? There are so many links to a sharepoint which does not exist or has expired guest access.
Yes, I am aware of this. I have written a new blog, so please, everyone, bookmark this:
ASE License blog
So, every time the license location changes, I will simply update the link in this blog.
However, PLEASE NOTE: We are currently experiencing Sharepoint issues. Therefore, some users have reported an issue with the Sharepoint link. We are working on this and I will update you all accordingly asap.
i have a problem with the new license under https://go.support.sap.com/minisap/#/minisap
If i dowload the license for "NPL - SAP NetWeaver 7.x (Sybase ASE)" and will install on my
NW751-SP02 i get the following error Message.
This system's system number is "000000000800291697", but there is a license key for system number "000000000850319755" in the license key file.
Please can you tell me where i can get a corret license for the Hardware-Key 800291697?
Thanks and regards
fixed 😉 I forgot to delete the "old" existing key.
Try to Delete the existing license and then install the newly downloaded one.
amazing! I cannot even access the page!
I just get a blank page, and when i check the debugger tools, it says that the page has some serious issues… anybode an idea, of how to get the license key??
Thanks in advance!
The license renewal page has issue accessing the ‘sap/ui/unified/library-preload.js’ page or the page is not available. Can someone in SAP fix the UI5 page? Thanks for your help.
Following are the error messages,
jquery.sap.script-dbg.js:289 2018-11-27 13:00:25.374500 failed to load ‘sap/ui/unified/library-preload’ (failed to load ‘sap/ui/unified/library-preload.js’ from ../../resources/sap/ui/unified/library-preload.js: TypeError: sap.ui.require.preload is not a function) –
Yes, I am also experiencing an issue with this page. We are not directly responsible for this page. However, I will look into this and get back to you.
Hello Kyo, Julie,
it worked for me again. I previously tried out several browsers (chrome, mozilla, even IE). Clearing cache etc. It didn’t work out for me.
As of today, using Firefox it is still not working for me, but Chrome is: (using https://go.support.sap.com/minisap/#/minisap)
Horst Meier provided in a comment another “representation” of the link as well:
-> This link works also in Firefox for me (after waiting some time). Always these SAPUI5 issues ?
Hope that you will get your license soon!
Yes, this is working for me too:
However, for my colleague, the original link is also working:
We will continue to look into this.
In Chrome, both of these (regular) links work also fine for me, only for mozilla i needed the “debug”-Statement.
Yeah, maybe some feature that is supported for one, but not for the other browser…
Anyhow, luckily it worked out (few days before the deadline ended for me) ?
By the way,
thank you Julie for putting so much effort on this "ABAP Demo Dev Trial Project" -> I am really grateful for having this oppurtunity!
The link, https://go.support.sap.com/minisap/?sap-ui-debug=true#/minisap worked for me.
Hi everyone, I just checked the page WITHOUT the debug parameter. It's working for me, so I'll consider the issue closed - If you are still having problems, please tell me.
For people having problems with installation, a “checksum error” may indicate a download error. Here are the checksums of the installation I did on November 9th (using 7-Zip via Windows File Explorer context menu on the files CRC-SHA -> CRC-32) :
All 10 files altogether: CRC32: 8899807D
I keep getting "Sorry. Your request for information is being reviewed. Once approved, you’ll receive an e-mail with additional instructions." No e-mail arrives.
I'm correctly logged in and have tried on 2 machines and 2 browsers.
To add. I finally got an email that allowed me to download file 01. However for all the rest I was not authorised. So it would seem that I now need to wait for an email for each individual file. Seems like a really dumb way to do it.
email !? I could download the 10 files directly with my S-user. Are you using a P-user or something else? I tried again now, no issue...
I've correctly logged in with my S user. I had to select each file individually and get the popup saying my request was being reviewed. This morning I received 10 individual emails for each individual rar file. When I click the link in the email I can download the related file. However I must click the link in each of the 10 emails for the 10 different files. i.e. if I try to simply return to the main download page to download the files I get the popup again.
I've never had this happen before. I recently installed the HANA dev edition with no such issue. I have been installing MiniSAP from back in the R/3 4.6 days when it was only available on Linux and never had an issue.
Dave Beardall There must be different policies based on region or I don’t know what. From France, I can download the 10 files individually without an email being sent. Let’s wait for Julie Plummer or Community answer. Or maybe you can ask SAP support (there's a Contact Us button in the support home page).
Hi David Metser , Is this the standard procedure in a particular region? It sounds as if something has gone wrong.
Hi Julie, Dave,
I am not sure where the problem here so I'll loop in the relevant people and promise to come back with an answer when I have one
Hi Julie, David
Thanks for coming back to me. I'm fairly certain I've worked out the reason but have not been able to verify yet.
In exasperation I registered a new user and was able with that user to immediately download all files without issue. I use a Mac at home with Mojave (latest OS). I had a look in the Keychain app and saw a warning that my SAP S user certificate was invalid.
I can only assume that this was the issue but it seems strange that any other SAP activity (such as reading OSS notes) did not have a problem with that certificate.
I checked and your comment below is supporting my feeling that there was a glitch in the system with your user.
I am not sure who can help but recommend contact the SAP contact person assigning your S user to see if he knows such an issue and knows who to contact.
Thanks again Dedi. I'll follow up. Cheers.
thanks for sharing this valuable information, thanks SAP for sharing this developer edition.
Just finished the installation successful on
At some points the installation was a little different than in the documentation. Shall I send you my summary direct or shall I write an own blog about it? What do you prefer?
is Mac book air 128 GB version enough to install developmer editon? or 256 GB variant needed?
for me the tutorial is not working 🙁 I tried different approaches, without success. It stops always with the same error: after ./install.sh it runs for a while and terminates with:
Abort execution because of
Step returns modlib.jslib.caughtException
In the last approach i followed the steps of Newbies’ Guide: Installing SAP AS ABAP 7.52 SP01 on Linux – VMWare in detail. I'm running on a Windows 10 Pro Host with 64 bit.
Is there a fix available or is something wrong with the latest Linux updates?
Thanks for any hit
This error could be caused by several things.
Please post on the ABAP Development forum : https://www.sap.com/community/topic/abap.html ; remembering to add the hashtag #ABAP_Trial , and including the error messages from the directory :
tmp/sapinst_instdir (The files are all *.log.) Please do NOT send the whole files, just the errors.

I guess it happens during ./install.sh - Did you try repeating ./install.sh right after the failure ? - BTW how can we help you if you don't explain what kind of installation you did (virtual box, vmware, ...), or if you opted for any special option during the installation (check the relevant "newbie" guide). More information you give, more help you get.
Srry, You are right
I’m trying to install as follows:
On first attemp I followed the Newbies guide to the letter, on second one I used more RAM and HDD, I repeated the entire process several times allways ending with “Error: Could not write into temporary file” during ./install.sh
Now I will download installation files again, maybe there is some corrupted file or something :S
Dear Julie Plummer,
Need your help, I had updated ASE licence to ASE_License_2020.
After updating I am not able to crate any objects in ABAP using both of the key
12222845243181034647 or 35408798513176413512
Please help me.
As explained by Julie, please ask using the tag #abap_trial
What ABAP release did you install, and what are your installation number and user name?
Thank you for your response Sandra Rossi. I was able to create objects after restarting system.
Thank you so much : ).
Now that we have several blogs, for several product versions, I simply cannot answer any more blog comments.
Please do not use comments in the blogs to ask tech support questions:
Please post on the ABAP Development forum : ABAP Development: Ask a Question , using the hashtag #ABAP_Trial. I will try to work through the backlog here, but cannot answer any further blog comments.
Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you very much, Julie Plummer
thanks a lot. You did really a great job. I am using the trial version since 7.02 (windows version).
This Version was really easy to install. No change of Database license keys. No hostname problems etc. I installed it on SUSE LEAP 15.
Thank you Nils! Good to know.
Can you connect this to the SAP Cloud Platform?
Hi Stefan R
As the author of this blog post has mentioned earlier, please post your question on the ABAP Development forum : ABAP Development: Ask a Question , using the hashtag #ABAP_Trial.
Mynyna (SAP Community moderator)
Hi Stefan, Please post a new question with the hashtag #ABAP_Trial.
I may be able to help.
(Sorry, but I can't break the rules sometimes, and sometimes not.)
for windows platform any free trial version availabe??
Install the Linux virtual machine mentioned above on your Windows computer, install SAP in the virtual machine, and you can play with it on Windows.
Really Appreciate for your support....Thanks...
I am trying to install abab developer edition on a remote server. But I get the server not local error. Can you help with this ?
I was trying to download the following file from https://developers.sap.com/trials-downloads.html
SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP Developer Edition 7.52 SP04 Part 10
On clicking the download link it starts the download of a wrong file :
i.e. part9 instead of part10
Please correct and advise.
Thanks and regards,
As Julie said, please ask the question in the ABAP Development forum with tag #abap_trial. Note that the question was already asked yesterday: https://answers.sap.com/questions/12878766/as-abap-752-sp04-dev-edition-archive-10-is-missing.html
Hi Amol Gupta,
As soon as the download is ready, I will announce it.
"DELAY" means it's not ready yet.
Thanks for your understanding. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Now it's ready.
I would like to use the abap dev edition to run an ATC (7.52 SP04).
But I need to install few OSS notes. And for some I have some prerequisites which ask for Object Key like this one :
Developer keys are only available for licensed customers.
However, you should not need to install any Notes for ATC in SP04. I installed all the notes.
What happens when you try to run ATC without installing the notes?
BTW the latest version of ATC is available in SAP ABAP Platform 1909, Docker Edition or SAP Cloud Appliance Library solution.
