Analysis 2.2 environment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE not working



i installed Analysis for Office 2.2. (SP3) on MS Office Professional Plus 2010 and SAP GUI 740 Final Release Build 1635946

We want to use it without BO platform for direct connection to SAP BW systems.

The current problem is as follows:

All SAP BW connections are perfectly available when i put the saplogon.ini in the directory

C:\Users\123456\AppData\Roaming\SAP\Common\saplogon.ini .

Now the requirement is to change the name of the file and place it in another folder, e.g. like


Therefore the Environment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE is configured in the following way:


Now no SAP systems are shown within Analysis for Office.

It seems like the Environment variable is not working with analyis for Office 2.2.

SAP Bex Analyzer is working just fine with the abc.ini in

Did anyone encounter similar Problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
