Defects in SAP IDES using SAP CAL

I created my account in SAP CAL and am using SAP IDES. It works mostly fine but I have 3 big problems with it:

- in SE80 developing webdynpro components I cannot see the layout nor the web elements
- the graphical screen painter is not working. It just displays the text-based screen painter.
- after a short time (of inactivity?) it just doesn´t work and triggers the error message "connection to partner not reached", so I have to log on again.

I´ve searched a lot in SDN but the answers are old (Mini SAP), inconsistent or incomplete, does not help and, in the case of SAP GUI 7.40, I cannot download the software because of lack of valid account at SAP Marketplace.

Why does SAP deliver software that is not working properly?? and the most important: why there is no documentation on how to solve the issues??

Hello Jorge

Sorry that the System does exhibit this behaviour. Focus of SAP IDES is to explore capabilities of the underlying SAP ERP using the available demo Company. So you are using the system outside of the intended scope.

For development activities we have developer editions of ABAP on Hana, BW/4HANA and ABAP on ASE. I expect the underlying systems will allow you to perform such development activities backed by suitable license terms.

I suggest you post your problem in

Sorry for the inconvenience
