    Hello Srinivas,

    if SAPLPD appears, that means Access Method F is used for front-end printing.

    The reason I am pointing this out is that Access Method F has been replaced by Access Method G. The consequence of this is that 'F' is not developed anymore, therefore problems with new software components, like SAP GUI 7.40 might happen.

    For this reason, the solution would be to use Access Method G instead of Access Method F. This change can be done in transaction SPAD in the Output Device definition.

    Best regards,

    Laszlo

    Hi,

    Kindly check the below configuration stepup correctly in output device for front-end printing. If the configuration fine then check the printer drivers installed and shared to your windows PC.

    Output device  : example LOCL.

    Device type    : SWIN,SAPWIN or a language-specific version for micorsoft Windows PC

    Access method  : G or F

    Host-Printer   : __default

    Thanks,

    Brindavan

      Hi,

        What if I have several users still using GUI 7.2 and 7.3??  If I make this access G change from F which is what we have right now, will 7.2 and 7.3 users still be able to print out??

    Hello,

    I think you SAPLPD is somehow obsolete. Look at this note 894444 - Tool for server-based print under Microsoft Windows (SAPSprint)

    And also in this thread are some other advice -

    Kind regards
