    Hi Zaheer,

    Why are you describing the installation of a release that is already out of support?  The current SAPGUI release for MacOS is 7.30.

    Regards,

      Hi Matt,

      Thank you for your time to read the post, and I appreciate your inputs and question.

      Let me try give you satisfactory answer.

      1. This guide is written with an intention to help those who are looking and trying to Install SAP GUI 7.20 in Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks platform and ended up with installing Windows OS in Mac machines due to limited or lesser information availability related to ‘Mavericks’ OSX & Java configuration.  Please note I have used term Mac OS X Mavericks not Snow leopard Lion or Mountain Lion version…

      2. I’m already aware that support has been discontinued of the described SAP version (7.20) and also aware about the current  release for MacOS X which is ‘7.30’ but in Mac OS X there are multiple versions too and I hope you are aware that Mavericks is very different than previous version which needs some different steps to run some JAVA based applications…

      I think there are many people who only have availability of 7.20 but they have upgraded their mac from previous OS i.g. Snow leopard/Lion/Mountain Lion to Mavericks OS X and right after that started facing issues to run SAP GUI 7.20 agent. In Mavericks OS,  SAPGUI 7.20 don’t get installed or launch due to Java version incompatibility, in my post there is a link given which redirects to support.apple.com page and shows how to upgrade java version which has been provided to Mac users.

      Last but not the least, I don’t think so that there is any harm to share any experience which could help users. In the world of “Information technology” everything is a reference for betterment…

      I hope my intentions will answer your queries. Please feel free to reply with your valuable advise/suggestions for my reference.

      Thank you.

      Regards

      Zaheer

        Hello Zaheer,

        I still do not get what exactly is the benefit running SAP GUI for Java 7.20 (out of support and never tested on OS X 10.9) on Java 6 (out of support by Oracle) on OS X 10.9 instead of SAP GUI for Java 7.30 (supported and tested on OS X 10.9) on Java 7 (supported) on OS X 10.9.

        Best regards

        Rolf-Martin
