Additional remarks to 700 and 701 NWDS releases:

extracted SAR file. SAPCAR is available at --> Browse our Download Catalog --> Additional Components --> SAPCAR




710 CE

711 CE

720 CE



There is no dedicated SAP NW Developer Studio 7.40, the SAP NW Developer Studio 7.31 is also to be used for SAP NW 7.40.
See also note #1791485 - NWDS 7.3 EHP1 as development environment for NetWeaver 7.4

Additional remarks to SAP NW Developer Studio releases higher equal to 710 and lower than 750:

These links are expecting S-User authentication. After download and installation, the Update Site installation has to be executed. You do this from
the installed Developer Studio's menu (Help – Software Updates — Find and Install...). This is required to have a complete installation, else Developer Studio will be just an "empty" Developer Studio without SAP content.

Caution: Even if you install SAP NW Developer Studio onto a 64bit OS, the JDK has to be 32bit.


There is no more update site solution. The new 750 release can be downloaded from -> By Alphabetical Index (A-Z) -> N -> SAP NETWEAVER -> SAP NETWEAVER 7.5 -> Click on the blue "SUPPORT PACKAGES AND PATCHES" button at the top right corner -> DEVELOPER STUDIO -> NW DEVELOPER STUDIO 7.50

In case, the NWDS is not displayed for download, please try to find it by selecting "By Category" (instead "By Alphabetical Index (A-Z)"). The rest of navigation path is the same.

Additional remarks to SAP NW Developer Studio 750:

  • 64bit SAP JVM 8 is required for NWDS 7.50. (Oracle JDK is not supported in NW 7.50)
  • NWDS can be downloaded directly from Support Portal, not from update site



  • No labels

    how to download the NWDS for mac can share the information how to download it in Mac Os x?


    Navaneeth Prodhutur


  5. Hi Navaneeth,

    I regret to inform you that none of the NWDS releases are supported for Mac.

    which says

    Supported operating systems are:

    • Windows XP 32-bit
    • Windows Vista 32-bit
    • Windows Server 2008 64-bit
    • Windows 7 32-bit
    • Windows 7 64-bit

    Thanks for posting all the links at one place. We are currently looking for 710 CE SP 3; However, the earliest release mentioned in the archive list is SP08. Would you be able to point us to links to download versions prior to SP08.


    Ashish Mittal

  7. Hi,

    I am sorry but I can't provide SPs prior to SP8. I believe the previous releases have been removed by a reason.

    What I can rather suggest is to:

    • use the latest available (i.e. SP8) version of NWDS 710
    • upgrade the target runtime systems (i.e. where you deploy your tracks) to 710 SP8 (because I assume they are on SP3 and this is why you want to use SP3 NWDS) 
    • update the build plugins inside the involved tracks so that they are using SP8 SCAs.

    Best Regards,

    I got the authentication-dialog but I can not log in. The dialog just appears again and again.

    Can someone confirm this behavior?

    1. Hi Ingo,

      if you are sure that the user is correctly entered (and make sure you use OS user if it says in the popup it expects OS user (usually referred as ADM user)) then perhaps this is NWDS that is caching the password you can get rid of as follows: Window – Preferences – General – Security – Secure Storage – select the tab "Content" and delete the "Default Secure Storage" entry, restart NWDS and try again.


      I hope this helps.

        It is not a Problem in the Developer Studio. It's in general if I want to connect to 

        I Also checked my Proxy-Settings and there is nothing in my etc/hosts

    Dear Ervin,

    I assume i have version compatibility issue with NWDS and SAP PO due to which I am getting deployment error.

    I tried my best by googling but in vain.

    My NWDS version is 

    SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio
    SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.3 SP12 PAT0000

    Any System component version is 7.4005.20131127084559.0000

    Am i working on correct NWDS version or is there any changes I have to make.


    Errors such as @SuppressWarnings("unused") can be seen in NWDS after deployment.

    Status ERROR
    Plugin :
    Deployment problems

    Status ERROR
    Plugin :
    Deploy Exception.


    Please help.

      Can you please post the link where I can register or create these credentials?




  11. Hi Peter,

    just tested, to me it works like a charm.

    Could you please test with different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome)?

    If the problem persists, please raise this question on

    Hi Ervin,

    I am new to SAP Netweaver and am trying to learn SAP FIORI.

    When I'm opening the links above, an alert/prompt shows up  asking for username and password.
    What credentials are these? Where do I create these credentials?

    1. Hi,

      have a look at this how to have an S-User:



  15. Can NWDS 731 be used to connect with NWDI 7.0 to work on a NW 7.40 track?

  16. Hello All,

    All links the authors provide are not available. Anyone has the latest link to download the NWDS with 7.3 or 7.31. My OS is Windows 7 with 64bits.

    Thank you in advance.

    Many thanks & best regards,


    1. Hello Hubery,

      could you be please more specific? I have just checked the 730 link and it works.

      It requires S-User authentication (as mentioned in the article) but that link worked. Which link are you facing issues with?

      Thank you and Best Regards,


      1. Hello Ervin,

        Actually, I add the task to local. However, The progress is always zero for 6 hours. Below is screenshot . I guess this is because of  access problem. I will change the network and try it. Thank you so much for your response.

    Hi Ervin,


    Just saw SAP Note 2226948 - SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.50 - Installation and Update.  Can we get an updated link to it for download posted here.




    Dan Mead

    1. Hello Dan,


      after discussing with my colleagues I have now updated the page.

      Thanks again and Best Regards,


  18. Hello Dan,

    thank you for pointing out, let me contact the note author first.
    Since it is holiday time, please expect delay in my answer.

    Best Regards and Merry Christmas!


    1. Hello Erwin,

      I just checked SAP Note 2226080 - Native Windows Libraries needed for NetWeaver Developer Studio and it seems that the mentioned downloads are still missing.

      How am I currently supposed to develop BPM / BRM on SAP PO 7.50 when NWDS 7.50 does not support those perspectives? Should I use the latest NWDS for PO 7.31 instead?

      Very best regards


      1. Hello Frank,

        ok, let me ask around, then I get back to you.

        Thank you for reporting this!


      2. Hello Frank,

        just talked to development.

        The note is correct , it is intended to list all manual installed libraries that are needed to run NWDS 7.5.
        But currently there are none, with the exception of Visual Studio Runtime that is detailed in 1375494

        However, you may want to take a look at note 2226948 (Installation and Upgrade), especially the section ‘Known Problems’ at the end.
        As far as I know BPM development is fully supported in NWDS 7.5. It’s about missing perspectives, maybe this is the reason why you don't see those perspectives.

        Best Regards,




        1. Hello Erwin,

          thank you for your quick reply. However, consulting both SAP Notes 2226948 and 1375494 our NWDS 7.50 does still not show some perspectives we would need for our project, e.g. the Rules Composer perspective.

          Therefore from our Point of view, we cannot use PO 7.50 as intended.

          Best regards



          1. Hello Frank,

            may I suggest to go on with this discussion here ?

            Please start a question here.

            Thank you and Best Regards,

    I downloaded Develoer Studio 7.5 and test it with a CAF project. But when making the "generation" activity the CAF framework fails. It only shows a popup and no logs. The problem seems to be that the framework is not generating the ejb project.
    Tested with:

    Windows Server 2008 64-bit
    JDK from Oracle jdk1.8.0_91 64-bit

    Windows 7 64-bit
    JDK from Oracle 1.8.0_91 64-bit

    Note 2226948 mentions that for deployable applications, the JDK major version of the Developer Studio must be the same as the JVM major version of your application server. But I have not checked if these are at same version.


      Hello Felipe,

      may I suggest to go on with this discussion here ?


      Please start a question here.


      Thank you and Best Regards,




  20. Ervin-


    I have installed 7.5 SP 01 single stack PO  and downloaded the corresponding NWDS for 7.5 SP01. when I unzipped the file it is missing NWDS exe file in the download. Please let me know where I can find the download.





  21. apparently the download path of NWDS 7.50 is not correct above, we'll look into it soon.

    quick help until that -> Software Downloads -->search for “netweaver 7.5”

    select “SAP NETWEAVER 7.5” Maintenance Product --> Developer Studio --> NW DEVELOPER STUDIO 7.50

  22. Former Member

    When I want to edit my Adobe Interactive Form templates in NWDS 7.5 the error popup says "Unable to locae WDAdobeControlSetup.msi; See the NetWeaver Developer Studio installation page for details".

    Unfortunately, I can't find the file and nothing about it is stated in the NWDS 7.5 installation and update Note.

    The 32-Bit Version from the 7.30 installation page did not change anything about the error message. Anybody got a hint how to proceed?

  23. Hi Karsten,

    I would recommend to ask here and when you raise there your question, make sure you also add the secondary tag 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Experts,


    We are using PI 7.4 AEX SP13. Which NWDS version is suitable ? Shall we go for NWDS 731?

  25. Former Member

    Dear Experts, Ervin,

    We urgently need NWDS 7.31 SP16 download. I could not find it in this repository. Please can you suggest where could I find it?

    Unfortunately we don't have an option to upgrade to newer version of PO right now as we are nearing go-live.

    Thank you.

    1. Dear Saravanan,

      I would suggest that ask your question here:

      Best regards,

    2. Hi Saravanan,

    Hi All,

    i am also looking for NWDS 731 SP12. But I can't find it anywhere. Could you please help me.

    Thanks in advance


    1. Hi Abdel,

      I have already discussed this issue with the responsible person. I will inform you if the missing SPs will be available again.

      Best regards,


  27. Dear Expert,

    The NWDS latest SP for NW 731/740 is not available for download. Kindly advise.


    1. Hello,

      Could you please check again? The NWDS 7.31 SP 16 patch 25 release can be downloaded from here.

      If you would like to access an other release, then you will be able to download it soon from the SAP Software Center >>  SAP NETWEAVER/ >> SAP EHP1 FOR SAP >> NETWEAVER 7.3/ >> ENTRY BY COMPONENT/ >> DEVELOPER STUDIO page. Currently this place is still empty, however all the NWDS packages will be placed here.

      The install media is currently under migration, the files will be available again during the next few days.

      Best Regards,




      1. Hi Viktor,

        I think NWDS 7.31 SP16 is not the latest version. Is it the latest SP version no longer available for download?
