Google has removed the support of NPAPI from Chrome 45
Google has removed the support of NPAPI from Chrome 45, which was released on September 1st 2015. As a result, from Chrome 45 the following SAP technologies are not supported in Chrome:
- SAP GUI for HTML which is tightly dependent on Java Applet for interacting with the client. SAP is working on a replacement for the Java Applet. The expected availability of the Java Applet replacement for Google Chrome is in Q4/2015. Please refer to Note 2208040.
- SAP Screen Personas 2.0 that runs in a browser which supports Silverlight plug-in. Please refer to Note 1884539
Customers who use Google Chrome with SAP GUI for HTML or with SAP Screen Personas 2.0 have the following options:
- Replace Google Chrome with a browser that supports NPAPI.
- Prevent Google Chrome from updating to release 45 until a replacement is available. This support article describes how to disable the Google auto update:
