SAPGUI 710

Hi!

After innstalling SAPGUI 710 i get the following error when trying to open the logon pad:

Unable to open the file:

File: SapLogon.sal

The file cannot be opened as the system does not know which program to use.

After searching and finding the logon pad program, the following error occurs:

-


SAP Logon

-


Error starting 'C:\Programfiler\SAP\SapSetup\setup\SAL\SapLogon.sal' (rc=-2)

-


OK

-


I've checked out note 1057351, but I'm not sure it applies as it only refers to short cuts which are self defined - I'm only using the ones created by the innstallation.

I've tried removing and reinnstalling a couple of times!

Any tips?

    Hi,

    When you are able to open logon pad mostly finished.

    Now configure Logon Pad.

    Hi,

    Look for the SapStart.exe installed and .SAL registerd to openwith SapStart.exe

    After Installing GUI, Open My computer-> Tools-> Folder Options -> File Types

    Select Extension SAL -> Advanced Button and Selet open action. here you can see the SAL registered to open with.

    If not registered. Please follow:

    Open My computer-> Tools-> Folder Options -> File Types

    Button New -> specify extension as SAL and OK.

    Select Extension SAL -> Advanced Button-> Edit file type as SAP Launcher

    Select Button New ->

    Action as : Open

    application used to perform the action : C:\WINNT\SAPwksta\setup\SapStart.exe /sal="%1"

    This may help you.

    Regards

    Ganesh

    Thanks for the feedback, you put me on the correct idea. But I had to move the saplogon program file to the SAL folder instead of the file which was put there by the innstallation - this opens the logon pad.
