SAP GUI 7.50 Installation Errors

I have downloaded & installed the latest SAP Gui 7.50. Previously there was no gui installed on Windows 10 64 bit laptop.

When I try to launch the app, I get a lot of errors regarding missing .dll files. I have updated the C++ environment & checked that all of the missing .dll files are now present. Yet this problem persists.

    Are you on windows 10 patch 1709? Looks like patch 1709 has some weird security features which is preventing from writing certain files to the Windows folder.

    Please follow SAP note 2578664 to fix the issue.

    - Open a PowerShell and navigate to the folder that contains the installation source files.
    - Run the following command: Get-ChildItem -Recurse | Unblock-File

    We are also facing the same behaviour.

    The setup is: new laptop with a fresh win10 installation.

    I've spent a couple of hours installing all the .NET Frameworks (2,3,4,4.5,4.6) and also the Microsoft C libraries and I've managed to reduce the number of errors to 19.
    Also tried to perform a clean deinstall and reinstall SAPGui 7.5 (cleaned the registry entries) but the installation is always ending with errors.

    After reducing the number of errors to 19 the SAPGui is starting, analyzer is also working but it just doesn't feel right (knowing that the installation process completed with errors).

    Folks,

    I found a work-around.

    I copied the installation folder to a slow thumb drive and I installed SAP GUI from there.

    Try it,

    Jim

      Thanks James. Your solution worked for me. I've just put the setup in a pen drive and put it in a usb 2.0 port and works fine.

    Folks,

    Is it possible that SAP Setup is using the wrong version of regsvr32.exe to try to register the DLLs and OCXs?

    After Windows fall creators update SAP GUI no longer installs correctly, I'm not sury why.

    I tried on 2 PCs with windows 10, one with a Fresh Install and another that was updated.

    Both have the same issue and returns a lot of errors and both machines didn't have the Sap Gui installed before.

    If you have the GUI 750 before the Fall Creators Update it'll work normally.

    I'm not sure If SAP wil lhave to do something or Microsoft.

    • Alex,

      Never mind. I found out what the Fall Creators Update was.

      Unfortunately, I updated my Windows more than 10 days ago and I can't revert the update.

      I think the problem has something to do with the new versions of regsvr32.exe

      Thanks,

      Jim

    It works perfect if you install from a USB stick.

    Mircea Cristian is right. I also confirm that it works by installing from a flash disk. It seems that SAPGUI installer expect it to be installed from a removable disk like a CD or flash disk.
