ABAP in eclipse GUI integration with Virtual install of GUI


Hi Experts,

In my organization, SAP GUI 7.3 Patch 9 is virtually installed (APPV installation) on a remote server accessible to all client machines. Configuration files etc. are all on the remote server.

When I invoke SAP GUI from Eclipse (Luna 4.4), I get an error "Failed to create the part's controls". When I further drill down, I find that it's looking for GUI installation at path " C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\FrontEnd\sapgui\\SapGuiServer".

I explored Eclipse preferences to find a place where this path is maintained, but I was not able to find one. Could you tell me how can I point Eclipse to the server path? or otherwise how can I resolve this error altogether? Do I need a physical installation of SAP GUI 7.3 on my PC?
