    You should be able to install succesfully the Abap preview of SDN on Windows 7.

    I've done many SAP (Abap or Java) installations on my laptop.


    But in my opinion the best way to do hat is to use virtualization.

    Use VMware workstation or VirtualPC and install you SAP system in a virtual machine.


    This way, your OS resources are used only when needed, you can copy your system and give it a colleague.

      Hi Gilles,


      I have installed Windows 7.0 on my laptop and i'm looking to research if ABAP engine can be installed on it.


      However your suggestion regarding VMware is something which I am trying to do for some time.

      Can you provide me steps/documentation of how to install it as a Virtual Instance.


      I have one other question...I trying to Use VMware in order to create a dump the current Installation on a computer so that it can be Used/dumped on another system. However I am seeing that the VMware fails at 95% with an error message.


      Your help would be greatly appreciated.
