Hello Experts,

I have an Eclipse Oxygen Installation on my MAC OSX machine and want to connect to SAP Gui.

I am able log in in the SAP Gui 7.50 independently, but not through Eclipse.

Please suggest a help for this error.

I get the Error Message:

Please contact your system administrator. A new version of SAP GUI for Java needs to be installed.
Actual Version * SAP GUI 7.50 rev 1, 075000040100, /Applications/SAP Clients/SAPGUI 7.50rev1/SAPGUI
Required Version 072000040600.

Thank you guys for all your time and details shared on this issue.

It is been resolved now.

I have changed the Java version from Java 9 to Java 8 and reinstall SAP Gui 7.5 again and it works perfectly now. Java version 9 should be removed completely from root system with all existing data to be flushed.

I have also tried with Gui 7.4 but not fruitful, so what i understand is, for Mac OS the correct combination is Java 8 and Sap Gui 7.5.

(Special help from Integration consultant Shashi Kant Nishad).

The proposed solution does not work, as I am already using Java 8 and it is the only installed version on my machine.

If I uninstall Java GUI 750 and install Java GUI 740 it works correctly.


Hello Daniel,

The issue is not in SAP GUI for Java itself, but in the code in AiE calling it, so I am not familiar with the details.

It looks like there is a correction available as part of

2009469 - Connection to system does not work anymore when using Linux or Mac

In case you need further help, please reach out to the ABAP Development community or open an incident on component BC-DWB-AIE.

Best regards
