SAP NetWeaver 7.03 ABAP Developer Edition System Requirements:

  • Internet Explorer 8.0 or higher or Firefox 1.0 or higher (newest recommended)
  • At least 4 GB RAM (recommended 8-16 GB)

  • 50 GB hard disk space temporary during installation – 36 GB permanent. The faster the better.
  • High-resolution monitor (1024×768 or higher, 256 colors)
  • Make sure that no other SAP system is installed on your computer. This version does not support multi system installations.
  • The SAP system requires several ports for communication services. Therefore the file %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\services must not include an entry for the ports 3200, 3600 and 8000. A possible entry can be excluded by using the hash symbol.
  • If no DHCP server is available on your network (which dynamically determines the IP address) or your computer is not connected to any network, you need to install the virtual interface adapter MS Loopback Adapter. The procedure to install a loopback adapter is documented within the download package.
