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!
