617 : SAP Frontend Server : The virtual key is not enabled.

I have a script which terminates on a certain users machine with error 617 : SAP Frontend Server : The virtual key is not enabled.

They have encountered this error after nearly 100 previous iterations without error. The data set is functionally identical to previous iterations.

I run in debug & do not encounter the error, & Google isnt helpful so far.

Any ideas?

Cheers
Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    I would try it with a small pause before the special command.

    for example:

    wscript.sleep 500    '= 0,5 s

    • Alas, I misrepresented the issue. The reported error was a red herring as the data was not in fact the same as the previous iterations.

      It was special & unique & could be detected with

      'Error Area = Session.findById("wnd[0]/sbar/").MessageId

      'Error Number = Session.findById("wnd[0]/sbar/").MessageNumber

      'Error Type = Session.findById("wnd[0]/sbar/").MessageType

      to find the error.

      I shouldn't have assumed it was a timing issue.

      Thanks nonetheless 😊
