Printing with SAP GUI 740

Recently we upgraded two users to SAP GUI 740 (with NWBC 5) and updated both to the latest patch levels (3 and 5 respectively)

But now we can't print using the printer button in the toolbar.

We get the following error message on one of our printers:

ERROR: syntaxerror

OFFENDING COMMAND: --nostringval--

but printing works just fine from clients running SAP GUI 730.

    Hello Shane,

    Does CTRL+P work?

    For frontend printing use access method 'G' instead of access method 'F'

    See SAP note 821519 for more details.

    Also be aware regarding SAPLPD usage:

    For server-based printing via access method 'S' or 'U', use SAPSprint

    instead of SAPLPD.

    Refer to SAP Note 894444. This is valid for ALL Releases.
