ATE does not display SAP Inventory Manager 4.0 screens properly

We're implementing SAP Inventory Manager 4.0 running on SMP 3.0 SP3 PL3. Testing the application in Agentry Test Environment is not possible as screens do not get rendered properly regardless of the platform selected. We've tried with multiple versions of ATE from SMP 3.0 SDK SP1 through SP4. None of those works. Because no buttons are rendered there is no way to interact with the app in ATE.

Could some prerequisites be missing? We've tried on a Windows 7 machine as well as the SMP server itself (Win Server 2008) getting the same exact results.

    Win32 screens were removed from the newest IM release because the WPF uses Tablet (iPad) screens.  You can test in the ATE using the PPC screens by making a change to your screensets.ini file that sits in your application directory.  We use this trick in product development to test using ATE:

    Change your Win32 section in screensets.ini to be as follows:



    After bouncing the server, using the above will allow you to debug the PPC screens.  We do this for all our testing.

      Thanks for the tip Jason. It worked. Of course the screen layout is not too great but at least actions are available. I'd only add that after modifying the screenset.ini file and bouncing the server, the Agentry client as well as ATE must be reset because they'll be using the old screen definitions and synching will fail.

    Sadly this is expected as the Windows, Android, and iPad use the the iPad screens which the ATE can't display at this time.
