Access method F (SAPLPD) does not work with SAPGUI 740. What should I do?
Some users found that after upgrade to SAPGUI 740, access method F cannot be used anymore. Please note SAP only supports SAPLPD for frontend printing in release prior to 4.6C. You have 3 options to resolve the issue.
1. Use access method G for frontend printing (note 821519). This is recommended.
2. Implement the correction of note 2028598 or import the support package in this note. Set profile parameter “rspo/local_print/guitimeout” to 0 and restart the system. After the steps are done, you can continue to use F, but actually SAPLPD is not started. Instead, control technology used by G is started. Please note that once the correction of note 2028598 is applied or the corresponding support package is imported, SAPLPD is not called anymore and cannot be reactivated.
3. Do not apply note 2028598, but continue to use F with SAPLPD, although this is not supported. You need to install SAPGUI 740 patch 4 (It is not released yet) and then you can continue to use SAPLPD for frontend printing as before.
