Tips to install Sap Gui On Windows Terminal Server 2003

Does anybody know any method to install SapGui on Windows Terminal Server 2003 to share it to many users ?

The problem is: when I try to install Sap Gui 6.40 via Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs it tells me that I must change the mode with "change user /install". I dont know the reason why it reports me that if I do it via Control Panel. And if I do that and then I launch the installation again it reports me the warning again.

What should I do ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Why dont u try SAP GUI for JAVA instead of installing win gui in Terminal Server. Refer my weblog for installation and configuration of SAP GUI for JAVA.


    Users can access through web. functionality is same as standalone wingui.

    Hope this helps,

      We have SAP R3 4.6C.

      We want to optimize the bandwidth in a 802.11b radio. Because of that we dont want to run any application in the hand-held.

      We'll intend to launch a remote desktop on a dozen hand-helds connecting the Windows 2003 Terminal Services server. In this server we could run SAP GUI, WebSapconsole or the browser.

      Its important to note that the hand-held computers must only show the designed windows (sized to 16x20), removing title bars, transaction bar, menu bars, tool bars, status bars, etc. For this purpouse I think we can use WebSapconsole.

      With this method we have noticed that when a error or warning is displayed it hides some part of the screen instead of presenting in the status bar.

      I hope you all your doubts are clear now, if not just tell me.

      Thank you.

      PS. Sorry for my english.

    as there is no "right" way for a program to find out if a computer is in install mode, sapsetup fails on this sometimes.



    or just ignore the error.
