This Blog provides information about running SAP Applications on the Microsoft Platform. The Blog is written by people who are working with SAP on the Microsoft Platform for decades.
The SAP Tools for MS SQL Server (STM) used to be a separate download from the msplatforms space on the SAP Software Marketplace.

With the recent release of the SAP Software Provisioning Manager (SWPM), the STM are now part of the Generic Installation Options of SWPM. See SAP Note 1680045 (Login required)
The SWPM itself is part of the SL Toolset and is updated regularly. Always download the latest version of SWPM. I will publish a separate blog about the SWPM shortly.
You can download the SWPM 1.0 from the SAP Software Marketplace:
The options that used to be part of the STM Tools are now at:
