In this blog, I will be discussing SAPGUI for Windows 7.10 Core, which SAP has released on 5th Feb 2007 for general availability. SAP started the beta test program for SAPGUI 7.10 for selected participants last year.  You can download the new front end from  http://service.sap.com/installations   and the patches to the GUI will be available in http://service.sap.com/ . (SMP login required to download the SAPGUI for Windows 7.10 Core)  SAPGUI for Windows 7.10 Core is supported for the following platforms:

  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP
  • Windows 2003 Server
  • Windows Vista
  • The new front end supports for accessing the SAP systems with Web Application Server 7.10 or less (6.x, 4.x, 3.x).  Let us see the new feature offered in this SAPGUI 7.10  Installation of SAPGUI for Windows 7.10 is very simple and takes less time compared to the previous version of SAPGUI and has the new setup files (SapGuiSetup, SapBiSetup, SetupALL) for installing the BI  and SAP other components separtely. Some of the new features in SAP GUI for Windows 7.10 TweakUI tool alllows you to create global settings for all relevant display options such theme, font, visualization and interaction in the SAP GUI. image  image

      Hi Velu,

      Thanks for this info. I installed the new version today.
      I don’t really see what was changed with the splitter editor. 🙁 Can you provide some detail?

      SAP Tweak GUI is a good idea. I tried to set “XP design theme”, but I couldn’t select it 🙁 It seems there is no such folder in c:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\themes\. Is it the same for you?
      Hopefully it will be fixed with patch.

      Best regards,
      Peter

      BV,

      AFAIK, certain “tweaking” of SAP GUI is possible even with older versions via Windows Control Panel applet (not sure about other OS-es)

      VS

      Hi Rich,

      OSS Note 950052 (SAP GUI for Windows 7.10: Beta program – updates and FAQ) also mentions the “Dynpro Splitter (an improved version of the known Splitter Control)”, so there is something changed on the GUI itseld. Most probable it’s only visible with a 7.10 system.

      Best regards,
      Peter

      Do yu know if this new SAPGUI will interface with OFFICE 2007 as well as Vista.

      Secondly I noticed the BI 7.10 componant for 2004s is now in a seperate install and support stream.  Why is this being split out from the SAPGUI?
      Regards,
      Fred Slattery

      In the marketplace under alias /sapgui in the future list the following is mentioned:
      “Support for new NetWeaver developer tools: Code Completion, new ABAP frontend Editor and the new ABAP debugger. “
      Does anyone have info about what the change is for the new ABAP debugger?
      Thanks,
      Peter

        There are some new features, but like the new Dynpro Splitter Control they aren’t effective unless you have an updated backend system as well.  For instance the majority of the new code completion functionality is done in the ABAP Kernel and ABAP coding itself although it also uses a few new features that needed to be added to the frontend control as well. 

        The new SAPGui parts of features always get rolled out first to make sure they are available before any customers reach the necessary backend levels.  It wouldn’t be any fun to get an upgraded backend system but not be able to use new features yet because you are waiting on an updated Gui. 🙂

        Around the frontend editor there are also some fixes and minor enhancements, but I do believe that the majority of these also found their way into a recent patch for the 6.40 gui.  One of the fixes I noticed was better use of the auto closing brackets for field-symbols.

      Has anyone found a way to use “load balancing” with 7.10 Frontend Installation Server?  6.40 had this functionality built in, but in 7.10, the installation server does not allow for it.  You can replicate an Installation Server to another share location on a different server, but it will not redirect a client to the closest Installation Server like 6.40 did.

      I have installed 710 and use ECC6. When
      using ALV-GRID (for example with SE16N) and
      changing the output to excel-inplace, i get the error:

      View cannot be switched. Product not installed or integration not active
      Message no. 0K000

      What do i have to install?

      Regards, Dieter

        We have the problem with Office XP and R/3 4.7.  So it’s not isolated.   We checked out Excel settings for macros and VB and they are wide open.

      Hi,
      SAPGUI 710 PATCH 1 is released. Unfortunately it didn’t solve my problem with the new ABAP editor code hints:(
      Best regards,

      After downloading and installing pathlevel-1, the future seemed positive:
      – Exporting an ABAP Query list via F7 to Excel-2007 started ‘normaly’:
      — It started Excel-2007
      — The data was transported into Excel-2007

      But….most of the data was scrambled with ‘strange’ characters: it looked like a country setting / language settings problem under Windows, so I tried many different combinations, but sofar unsuccessfully…..

      Anyone with ‘the’ solution ?
