SAProuter Installation on Windows


You have the latest version of SAProuter (available from the SAP Service Marketplace ( (see Installation of the SAProuter), and have read the readme file.

The SAProuter version must not be under 23.



1. Create the subdirectory saprouter in the directory :\usr\sap.

2. Download the latest version of the SAProuter from SAP Service Marketplace. Read the README file in this package. Copy the executables saprouter.exe and niping.exe to the directory you have just created.

If there is no SAProuter there, you can get a version (may be obsolete) from your directory :\usr\sap\\SYS\exe\run.

3. If SAProuter has already been entered as a service with srvany.exe, remove the definition of the service from the Registry and restart the host.

4. Define the service with the following command:

ntscmgr install SAProuter -b ...\saprouter\saprouter.exe -p “service -r


The points stand for :\usr\sap

<parameter> can be replaced by other parameters with which SAProuter is to be started. See SAProuter Options). It is important that the parameters are within the character string enclosed in double quotation marks.

5. Define standard service properties in Control Panel ® Services, set the startup type to “automatic” and enter a user. SAProuter should not run under the system account.

6. To avoid the error message “The description for Event ID (0)” in Windows NT event log, you have to enter the following in the registry: Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ® SYSTEM ® CurrentControlSet ® Services ® Event Log ® Application enter the key saprouter and define the following values for it:

EventMessageFile (REG_SZ): ....\saprouter\saprouter.exe

TypesSupported (REG_DWORD): 0x7


These adjustments are not obligatory for running SAProuter. They are only used for providing detailed error messages in the event log.

Maintain the Route Permission Table in the system32 Windows directory. If you want to keep it in another directory or under a name other than saprouttab, you must specify this with the SAProuter option -R (see Option R ).
