SAP offers a wide range of add-ons that you can use to enhance your standard SAP system. These add-ons can be Industry Solutions, or customer-specific development projects.

SAP Add-On Installation Tool was developed to enable users to install and upgrade add-ons directly from their standard SAP system.


  • Add-On Installation Tool checks conditions, such as the SAP Net Weaver Release and the Support Package level of the various software components, accepting or rejecting them accordingly.
  • Firstly complete installation or upgrade and then put together in the customer system from the add-on package, any Support Packages that are needed.
  • Installing and Upgrading Add-Ons.
      • Restart capability

    The installation itself can be restarted, like the Support Package import process.

      • Special import procedure

    You can use a special import procedure to reduce downtime while importing add-on packages.

      • Start time definition

    The separate phases in SAP Add-On Installation Tool are grouped into modules. You are free to choose any start time you want for these modules.

      • Background Processing

    You can also schedule the modules with defined start times for background processing.
