Error calling application via OLE IXOS.IXSCAN.SC2SAP Message no. OA175


I recently took over some OpenText Document Archiving tasks and there is one thing bugging me: Wherever I add the PDF Document Type I get the following error, when double-clicking the Document Type:

When the user selects the PDF Document Type with a single click and drag'n'drops a PDF into the white rectangle, there is no error and the file gets archived properly.

I found some tips to check OAA3 and OAA4, but anything I did modify there did not alter the result, so I changed everything back to how it was.

Here are the OAA4 settings:

---> IXSCAN:

Any help or explanation is appreciated.

The above issue is on ERP

While doing a test on ERD I noticed that there the PDF Document Types was not giving the error, but the JPG Document Type did.

ERD: JPG gives Error, PDF is OK.

ERQ: JPG gives Error, PDF is OK.

ERP: JPG is OK, PDF gives Error.

I noticed that in SM30 ( /IXOS/OA_DOCTYPE ) the PDF entry for WebViewer is missing (on all systems) when compared to the OpenText installation Guide, but since the table is the same on all 3 systems but the behavior is different on the 3 systems, I assume this is not related.

    Hello Alex,

    Just disable the security status in SAP GUI options


    1) upgrade the .net framework version to 4

    2) Go to Options > Security > Security Settings


    4) In IXOS.ixScan.SC2SAP setting

    we had this error with TA OAWD - Enterprise Scan didn't start up. The solution was to add a Security object in SAP GUi settings. We added IXOS.IXSCAN.SC2SAP like this:

    Hope it helps!
