SAP GUI Upgrade Problem fixed by Changing GUI Theme
Hello SAP Community!
I recently had a problem with an SAP GUI update that I received.
Now that I have found the solution, I’d like to share it with everyone.
My company upgraded my SAP from version 7.1 to version 7.3.
After my upgrade, I received a request to load some Activity Types. In my company we have a Script set up in ABAP that loads Activity Types via a custom transaction.
I go into the custom transaction code, select a radio button, enter a file path, and select Execute.
But, my new GUI made a Security pop-up come up that asks if I’d like to allow SAP to access the filepath that I entered.
This pop-up caused the script in the background of the transaction to stop running.
I attempted to select the checkbox (Remember my Decision) and re-run the process, but it did not fix anything.
Then i went into my security options and set them to prevent the pop-up, re-ran the process, and it still didn’t fix anything.
Then, i went into my GUI Options and changed my GUI Theme from the “System Dependant Theme” to the “Enjoy” theme. I tried to re-run my process, and it worked!
I no longer have the security pop-ups and I am able to load activity types with no issue!
Have a lovely day!
