Use

You use this procedure to install the client on the mobile device using a setup package that the administrator created.

Note

If the administrator has not created a setup package, you have to install it manually or using a URL (for more information, see Installing the SAP MI Client Using the URL).

Prerequisites

      You have a setup package for the installation.

      You have administrator authorization for the mobile device.

      The following are installed on the mobile device:

       For Win32 systems: JDK 1.4.* or JDK 1.5.*.

       For Windows Mobile systems: Java Virtual Machine CrEme

setup.cab Installation on a PDA (Windows Mobile)

...

       1.      Provide the setup package by including the corresponding data carrier or navigating to the relevant network directory.

       2.      If you have received the file setup.cab for the installation, you can start the installation by double-clicking this file.

       3.      The client and other applications and data are installed on the mobile device.

       4.      Restart the mobile device.

       5.      Start SAP MI and log on (for more information, see Starting SAP MI and Logging On to SAP MI).  Use the initial password you received from the administrator to log on.

If you have not got a user for SAP MI, you must create a user (see Creating a User).

       6.      Before you can work with the mobile application, you must synchronize. Depending on the setup package, you may have to do this multiple times. In certain cases, you may have to restart the mobile device or SAP MI after the first synchronization to have all the required data on your mobile device (see Synchronizing for the First Time).

       1.      Provide the setup package by including the corresponding data carrier or navigating to the relevant network directory.

       2.      If you have received the file setup.zip for the installation, unzip the file to a newly created directory, for example, C:\MI. For your installation directory, select a directory with as short a name as possible. A name that is too long could cause the installation to fail.

       3.      Start the installation by double clicking the file setup.exe. You can find the file in the newly created directory under \Client\setup. For example, under C:\MI\Client\setup.

The client and other applications and data are installed on the mobile device.

The installation program has installed the client and created an entry to start SAP MI on your mobile device.

       5.      Start SAP MI and log on (for more information, see Starting SAP MI and Logging On to SAP MI). Use the initial password you received from the administrator to log on.

If you have not got a user for SAP MI, you must create a user (see Creating a User).

In certain cases, you may have to restart the mobile device or SAP MI after the first synchronization to have all the required data on your mobile device (see Synchronizing for the First Time).
