SAPGUI 7.10 on Vista

Hi,

I try to install SAPGUI 7.10 on my laptop, what came with Vista preinstalled. :-(((

My first problem was that I couldn't find the saplogon.ini location. I found a solution for that, it is located at:

C:Users**User_Name**AppDataLocalVirtualStoreWindows

I couldn't add manually the SAP systems either, I still don't know why, but I don't need to add anything, so I don't care...

My second and showstopper problem is that SAPGUI will not start:

...

Error: service '?' unknown

Component NI (network interface)...

The setup added the services to the services file, I added manually as well, but the login still doesn't work.

I can ping the servers, so in theory networks issues are not a problem.

Vista is going to become a curse word, if it not already is...

    What did you enter in the "System ID" for that system the error message appears?

    Try turning off User Access Control (Control Panel-->User Accounts, I believe), set the saplogon.ini file in the C:\Windows directory (the "usual" place), and see if that works...

    Vista's UAC has been a big headache for us here as well

    Hi,

    The problem was that the services file what I have got from Basis had several errors in it.

    My Vista Laptop works fine since I've figured out that parts of the services file was corrupt.

    Thanks for the help.
