Multiple SAP GUI version on one computer

Hi,

I am using Windows XP, professional. Can I have multiple versions of SAP GUI e.g. 6.40 & 7.10 on one computer?

thanks,

B Patil

    No, they cannot coexist because they would expect "their" versions of DLLs and other stuff in Windows/system32.

    If you have to test n versions you need n computers or at least n XP installations on one computer.

    Hi,

    yes, you can. It is possible when you use SAPGUI for Java. It is not clear if your question is about SAP GUI for Windows or for Java environment. I live with all released versions from 7.00 to 7.10 rev.2 installed on one computer. I believe that 6.40 version will work with Sun JRE 1.4.2, but I have not installed it yet.

    Regards,

    Pavel

    • Hello,

      in the mentioned document "SAP GUI" is used in some places as a shortening for SAP GUI for Windows, which is fine in most cases. However in this particular sentence, it really might cause confusion.

      The one and only version is indeed related to SAP GUI for Windows. There are no known issues related to having multiple versions of SAP GUI for Java installed in parallel to SAP GUI for Windows on the same machine.

      Best regards
