    I always laugh and laigh when trying to download this from the SAP Service Marketplace. You have to navigate from window to wndow, none of the links are intuitive, and you end up with four different web pages open.


    Someone coming into the SAP service marketplace for the first time would think to themselves “this company clearly does not understand the importance of cloud based systems”


    In the same way, the other day I tried to access the SCN on my smart phone and it came out really small, unlike a lot of web sites which adapt themselves to the dveice at hand. So the same person seeing this for the first time would say “this company clearly does not understand the importance of mobility”


    Just to round this off, whilst navigating the SCN you often get the big dlalys whilst the “loading” barber shop pole spins round and round, sometimes quite a long delay. So that same new person might say “this company clearly does not understand the importance of fast database access”


    Now, I’m being really cruel here, but web sites are a customer’s (or more importantly a potential customer’s) view of a company, and do SAP really want even the smallest chance of a first time viewer coming away thinking “this company does not understand the cloud, or mobility, or databases”?

      A lot of truth in your words Everything is so vast and complicated in SAP, that even after 8 years of working I feel like a newbie. Sometimes I think you cannot simplify the unsimplifiable. For exmple – I write blogs, and create discussions, but I don’t know where to see the newest blogs, or discussions on a certain topic, so that I can answer people.

      Me and a couple of friends already downloaded the ABAP AS Trial to get the latest SAPGui. We’ve managed to learn how to get the AS Trial, and we don’t want to feel ANOTHER pain to figure out how to download a basic developer tool from SAP…

    According to the OSS note the first patch is due the middle of December and I cannot wait.


    If I had written something with so many bugs and it had gone into production, I would be sacked, and then the person replacing me would be instructed to get a fix into production as fast as possible, the same day hopefully.


    There was clearly no testing done at SAP before this was released, common in software firms these days – probably what they were expecting to happen – which did happen the very day of the release – is that the obvious bugs were reported by dozens of foolish users like me who download new things to see what they are like, knowing full well they will not work.


    I have no doubt that by the end of the first week the developers inside SAP had fixed at least the most glaringly obvious bugs. So, if the first patch had come out the week after the 740 GUI then there would not have been such a torrent of abuse on the blog announcing the new 740 GUI. The banter started off light hearted but as it became clear the myriad of problems were not going to be fixed the tone turned downright nasty, so much so that the thread had to be locked, as the abuse was getting personal.


    The problem is being inflexible with a plan. The schedule was to release the patch in December, so that plan is fixed in stone. It does not matter there are urgent fixes needed – December is the plan, so December it will be.


    This is somewhat like having a battle plan to bomb the hill where you think the enemy are, and on the day of the battle your scouts tell you the enemy have moved, they are no longer on the hill, but you say “bomb that hill anyway because that is the plan”.

    I’m trialling SAP GUI for Windows 7.40 patch 5 compilation 2 and experiencing ‘Invalid GUI input data’ messages in some transactions, not previously encountered in 7.30. One such message appears when using ERP/SPRO where we get this message: ‘Invalid GUI input data: ST_USER_MAX_WSIZE’. Any advice?

        Many thanks Christoph – the sap note workaround has resolved this issue for us. Hopefully the next hotfix/patch level will address this issue.

    with SAPGUI-7.40 PL-03 hotfix-1 we recognized a delay of about 10sec. when try to logon to a SAP-System


    system-selection-Screen, selecting a System, click button logon,

    => wait about 10sec. => logon-Screen apears

  5. ILIAN Grigorov Post author

    I guess we are all waitinf for hotfix 5.1 where all these issues will be fixed. I have not seen the “wrong data” problem, but I see the “…” problem. I cannot fix it from the options menu (Visualisation 2).

    I guess I will hold on with the installation of 7.40. So far my users use 7.30 and 7.10 with no issues…

    I’m running 7.40 patch 4, trying to apply patch 6 and getting this message:

    In the past it seemed only the latest patch was necessary to install, all updates seemed to be cumulative to latest patch. Has this changed, and I need to install both 5 and 6 to become current?  Thank you.

      1. Sue Morton

        I’m curious to know, what has changed that the base must be installed again before applying latest patch? 


        Originally I installed 7.40 base, then later applied patch 2 when it came out (just happened to skip 1), then patch 4 when it came out (happened to skip 3).


        Why not skip 5 and apply 6 now?


        Sure, I can try installing base again then try to apply patch 6.  But, even if that works, this does not look good for user deployment.  Is this the required procedure now, to reinstall base and then apply latest patch?

        1. Former Member


          You do not need to reinstall your complete GUI.


          Apply patch 70 for “SAP Setup” first and then apply patch 6 for SAP GUI for Windows 7.40.


          Patch 70 for SAP Setup is a pre-requisite for patch 6 for SAP GUI 740.

    1. ILIAN Grigorov Post author

      I had the same problem applying hotfix 1 and 2 of patch 5. Perhaps they require an installation compilation 2. My solution was to use the Installation server – patch it with the patch, and then create a single file installer, which acts both for installation and update of the SAP GUI.


      Sudhakar Kanchi Where we can download this patch 70 for “SAP Setup”? It sounds simpler than my solution.

      1. Former Member


        Here is one of the option to download the patch file:


        -> Browse Download Catalog

        -> SAP Frontend Components


        -> SAP GUI FOR WINDOWS 7.40 CORE

        under “Info Page” area you can see the “link” for each component.

        select the “link” for Name of the component “SAPSetup 9.0”.


        Download the file with the Title “SAPSETUP90P2SP00P”.

        File Name – “SAPSETUP90P2SP00P_70-20008539.EXE”.


        Also you can search the file directly or can use the below url as well.


        1. Sue Morton

          Applied the above file “SAPSETUP90P2SP00P_70-20008539.EXE” successfully.


          Still cannot apply patch 6, same error message as before, “This SAP Front End patch requires a higher base version of the installed products. Update to a higher version of the product before applying this patch.”

    I would like to know if the GUI 7.40  can be applied to office2016 x64? And how to ? NOW,i have office 2016 x64 in my computer,and i applied GUI 740 BGP and BEX analyzer in my laptop,but the bex could not work. and dont know why  and  how to  fix it.  please tell me. thank you very much!

      Hello Florian,


      are you running Personas 3.0? I think this particular Gui version has a problem with Personas’ usage logging.  Disable usage logging ( transaction /personas/admin -> Goto Menu – > Analytics -> Measurement Analysis: in the shown screen there should be a toolbar button “Disable Usage Logging”.)  and see if the problem disappears.


      Of course, there could be another Personas script (onLoad/onAfterRefresh) that causes this problem, but then it would not occur for all transaction and espectially not if not flavor is applied.


      Best Regards,

        Careful with patch level 9 if you’re using the MRS planning board!


        We’re on MRS 800 and after installing the newest PL resources and assignments are not visible anymore. It is not an authoritzational problem or anything of the kind – it has to be caused by the SAP GUI: Yesterday I was using PL8 on the same computer and it worked. To make double-sure I connected from two different VMs today. One is still on PL8 where it still worked. The other is still on 720 PL4 and worked as well.

        Only 740 PL9 is not displaying any resource+assignment data.


        Update: PL10 is out now and with that MRS is working again.

    I am sorry for the delay – I did not update this for quite a while…
    SCN migration helped for that.
    Also the blog post design changed, and it is ugly now. When I try to edit it in the editor – it looks fine. Seems I cannot fix it for now.

    P.S. still difficult to guess the idea behind using WordPress for SCN blogs !?

    I’m using, consulting and developing SAP stuff for 20 years know and since then I’m still waiting for a import, export or any kind of a manual merge tool.. when using SAP GUI saplogon.ini or NWBC… landscape files..

    I think I will already be retired if this happens.. sometime in future

    1. ILIAN Grigorov Post author

      I am not sure that I fully understand your problem, but with the installation server (NwSapSetupAdmin.exe) you can make your own single .exe file installation, and include your own saplogon.ini there.

      Also the new versions have option to take the .ini file from a network resource, every time they start (and/or cache it), perhaps even through HTTP.

      If you want to merge 2 .ini files, I guess copy/paste would work , not sure.



      P.S. meanwhile check my tool – – solved another problem
