User Defined Logon Pad Entries

If your PC has a local SAP GUI installed on the machine, then the chances are that the SAPLogon.ini file will be found in the C:\Windows directory.

This file determines which systems are available in the Logon Pad.

And often you are not authorised to access this file and make direct changes. Even worse, when you upgrade then this file is often updated too and you loose all your previous settings.

This is what I do each time I go to a new client site.

  1. Copy the SAPLogon.ini file from the C:\Windows directory
  2. Paste the file into a personal directory on you PC e.g. C:\Temp\SAP or C:\Users\USERNAME\SapWorkDir
  3. Create a new shortcut on your desktop with the following settings (you may need to adjust the SAP GUI path):
    • Target: “C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\saplogon.exe” /INI_FILE=C:\Users\USERNAME\SapWorkDir\saplogon.ini
    • Start in: “C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui”


Now you have your own SAPLogon.ini file that no one can touch.

Hope this was useful.
