    You can either connect using SAPGui binary or the SAP shortcut binary.

    Here are two examples that I did test on a SAPGui 7.30

    The '-gui' parameter is optional but it can allow to connect on a SAP system that is not defined in the SAPLogon.ini config file of the client

    TheĀ  -command param allows to open a specific report/transaction.


    "%ProgramFiles%\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\sapgui.exe" /SHORTCUT="-system=XXX -client=200 -user=TEST -pw=password -language=E -type=Transaction -command=se38 -gui=/H/SAP_srv_hostname/S/3200"

    "%ProgramFiles%\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\sapshcut" -system=XXX -client=200 -user=TEST -pw=password -language=E -type=Transaction -command=se38 -gui=/H/SAP_srv_hostname/S/3200

      got the same problem.

      A Java Applet is loaded and tries to start sapshcut.exe to view a transaction.

      In background a jp2launcher.exe (Java 8) is started.

      The sapshcut.exe is executed after several minutes. If i kill the jp2launcher process
      the sapshcut works immediately.

      The only workaround I found, is replacing the sapshcut.exe from SapGui Rel. 7.3 or 7.4
      with the sapshcut.exe from the 7.2 version.

      That works.
