ides installation guides can always be downloaded from You only need a SAP id to logon.
If you don't have, ask your company.

You should always intsall SAP on test plateforms those are recommended by SAP. I don't think that you will ever be able to install SAP IDES or any other SAP version on Windows XP home or professional. You should use Windows 2000 Server Ed. The installation files can be downloaded from but you need a valid user Id.

Installation files are also shipped with installation CDs. Please look at the CDs to find the proper CD to look at the installation guides.
