Hello everyone, 

                   I am working on SAP GUI 7.40 silent install. The source file 'SAPGUI740_Package_With_Patch2.exe' extracting installation files to Temp. I have gone through the SAP Installation guide. Its given to create an Installation Server using 'NwCreateInstServer.exe' from the SETUP folder, and then run 'NWSAPSetupAdmin.exe' from SETUP folder to create Package. But I dont find these executables in the extracted files. Can anyone please explain how to get these files to create the package. 

Thanks in Advance.

Don't quote me but I think the patch EXEs only include files that it's going to replace.

MwCreateInstServer.exe etc. will be on the original source media you used and, if my information is correct (I'm working fifth-hand on SAP GUI at my current client!), on the SAP Server itself.

I've found that there's no real need to use MwCreateInstServer.exe. I just took an existing installation source and copied it to a new location. Once there, I used NwSAPSetupAdmin.EXE to create a new package that suited our new requirement. MwSAPSetupAdmin.EXE will be in "[folder_to_which_you_copied_an_existing_source]NW_7.0_Presentation_\PRES1\GUI\WINDOWS\WIN32\Setup"

BTW, the latest patch for 7.4 is Patch 9. See here for details.
