SAPGUI: Graphical Form Painter could not be called (FORMPAINTER_CREATE_WINDOW, )

Hi,

After upgrading to SAPGUI 7.40 SP5 (Release: 740 Final Release, File version: 7400.2.5.1110, Build:1614083, Patch level: 5) I got the following error message in SE71 when I try to use the Graphical form painter:

Graphical Form Painter could not be called (FORMPAINTER_CREATE_WINDOW, )

Message no. TD245

Diagnosis

An error occurred structuring the graphical Form Painter.

System Response

The system switches to the alphanumeric Form Painter.

Before it worked fine with SAPGUI 7.30. No relevant OSS note was found. OS: Win 7 Enterprise SP1 64bit.

Any hint what to check (apart from opening an OSS message)?

Thanks,

Peter

    Graphical Form Painter in initial installation of SAPGUI 7.40 PL1 (50127120_6) seems to work fine for me.

    SAPGUI 7.40 PL5 (gui740_5-10013011.exe) installation removes file

    C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\saprtf.ocx

    in my installation.

    Simple quick copy back from SAPGUI 7.40 PL1 (50127120_6) does not solve the issue.

    (I found no saprtf.ocx in gui740_4-10013011.exe or gui740_5-10013011.exe, open with 7zip).

    OS: Win 10

    Side-effect from 2192210 - New and removed components on the Presentation DVD 7.40 Compilation 2 (SAP GUI Installation) ?

    Controls for the SAPscript Legacy Text Editor: This component is called "SAPSCRIPT LEGACY TEXT EDITOR" on SAP Support Portal and can be found here

    http://service.sap.com/~form/handler?_APP=00200682500000001943&_EVENT=DISPHIER&HEADER=Y&FUNCTIONBAR=N&EVENT=TREE&NE=NAVIGATE&ENR=73554900100200003586&V=MAINT

    The link shows "No data available" at the moment, so not clear, which OCX might be in.

    P.S.

    ECL Viewer is gone, too. 😔

    Thanks everyone, I downloaded the editor, added it to my GUI install server and updated and created a new package.

    Works fine now.
