SAP 4.7 Installation – Layman’s Guide

This tutorial is for Installing SAP IDES 4.7 on Windows XP Pro or Windows 2003. This is the only document you will ever need to install SAP onto your local system. I have tried to follow the steps and it works like a charm eventhough I don’t know anything in SAP Basis.

Hats off to Rajeev for making such a wonderful document.

Here is the gist of what is covered in the manual.

  • Minimum System Requirements
  • Required Downloads
  • Installing MS Loopback Adapter
  • Increasing Virutal Memory
  • Oracle and Java Installation
  • SAP Installation – Central/Database Instance
