Packeting and distribution SAP GUI 7.3

Hi Guys,

i need to change the 'SAP GUI' from 7.20 to 7.30 for 50 users.

I'm trying for create an autoinstall package, I already got the program to  make it.

I need to know if i can insert parametrization kind of security for example to set the 'grant always allows' for the file,

in the way that the user not need to choose it.

There is something else i need to know when i create the autoinstall file ?

Any kind of suggestion is well done.

    Hi Rino

    You can, as Jude stated out, disable the security feature. I did this via batch script which we published via policy and set the following entry in the registry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SAP\SAPGUI Front\SAP Frontend Server\Security] (for 32 bit systems) or [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SAP\SAPGUI Front\SAP Frontend Server\Security] (for 64 bit systems)

    with REG_DWORD SecurityLevel = 0

    You can also create an on-end-install script on your installation server:

    NwEngine.Shell.SetRegValue “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SAP\SAPGUI Front\SAP Frontend Server\Security\SecurityLevel”, “REG_DWORD”, “0″

    Please keep in mind the path is different on 64 bit-systems (add Wow6432Node).

    You can also have a look at note 1483525 and the security guide.

    Hope this helps.

    • Hi Rino,

      Jann is right, you can add the script into the GUI installation package, then dispatch the package to end users.

      And you can click the "Insert Script Sample" to get the example script.

      The default action of the GUI security option is stored in the following  registry:
      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/SAP/SAPGUI Front/SAP Frontend  Server/Security]

      0 allow
      1 ask
      2 deny

      0 disabled
      1 customized
      2 strick deny

      Best Regads,

    Hello Rino,

    There is the security guide as part of the documentation of the SAPGUI install.

    You can either disable the security option altogether, or customize you are doing above.

    The SAP GUI Security Guide   ( SAP_GUI_Security_Guide.pdf )

    you will find in the   DOCU   folder on the SAP GUI Installation CD.

    I added this string:  NwEngine.Shell.SetRegValue “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SAP\SAPGUI Front\SAP Frontend Server\Security\SecurityLevel”, “REG_DWORD”, “0″    both in "on end installation" and in "on end update" in way that, if the string does not exist in the registry key, the installation write it.

    Thx for all for your cooperation.
