Installation Error - SAP Unicode RFC Library Not Found

Out of approxoimately two dozen successful client installations of the BObj Integration Kit for SAP Solutions (SP2), I have one user who gets this error: "The SAP Unicode RFC Library could not be found. This library is available as a part of the SAP Frontend, which is a pre-requisite for the installation of this software. Please install 'Unicode RFC Libraries' feature in SAP GUI Installer 710 installer, then re-run this setup."

The problem is that this user is running the exact same Integration Kit installation on top of the the exact same SAPGUI installation that has generated successful results for all other client installs on our team. Why would this probelm be happening for one particular user? (Problem is happening on a Windows XP client system, but as I've mentioned, all other installs on a Windows XP client have been fine.)

I've reviewed OSS Note 1372466, but it indicates that the problem resides on the SAPGUI server side. Regardless, I have only one client generating this error out of many what appeared to be identical clients that installed successfully.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Josh

    Hi,

    take a look on the client and search for librfc32u.dll.

    Hi,

    are you sure that the "Unicode RFC Libaries" are installed for the SAGUI ?

    Check via the Software Control Panel. If not re- install the SAPGUI with the Unicode RFC Libaries.

    Thanks, Ingo. A missing librfc32u.dll file seemed to be the problem. Interestingly, the problematic client had this dll in a couple of places, but not in the c:\WINDOWS\System32 directory. Why that dll wasn't in the right place for one particular client is a question for a different forum. 😉

    Thanks,

    Josh
