    Estoy intentando seguir tus direcciones, pero no estoy logrando. Yo recibo el mensaje de error que la carpeta publica no está mas disponible, y que tengo que contactar el dueño.

    Puedes compartir-la de Nuevo a nosotros?

    Gracias de antemano.

    • Que tal Caio, la URL para descargar la nueva licencia es propiedad de SAP Company y ellos quitaron el acceso para la renovación. Hasta ahora no he logrado encontrar otra opción para descargar la licencia. En cuanto la encuentre la compartiré.
