SAP WebIDE Personal Edition: No Systems Found

I've followed instructions both from SAP Help and from a blog by Florian Henninger on installing SAP WebIDE Personal Edition v. 1.53.9 on my local Windows 10 workstation and connecting it to a backend SAP system. When I try to import an application however, the WebIDE finds no systems (the highlighted dropdown list is empty):

There are similar questions posted on and also in the comments section of Henninger's blog but no solutions are posted. Note that SAP Cloud Connector is not installed because I'm not connecting to the cloud. I have stopped and restarted the Orion server multiple times.

My system file named XYZ is located in directory


and was created via the console echo command. The file has type "File" (not "Text") and contains the following contents (URL and sap-client have real values in my file)


Has anyone encountered this same issue and discovered the solution?

    The problem turned out to be that localhost (where WebIDE runs) was not a trusted site. After adding localhost as a trusted site under control panel > internet options > security, we now see our SAP systems in the dropdown.

    hi Amy,

    are you able to do a ping to the address from your workstation via powershell or command line?

    Have tried it with one of my system and that is the answer:

    If that doesn't work you have to take care that the workstation and the system get to know each other.

    And just to make it double sure, the mentioned ICF-services are all active.
