SAP Windows GUI and HTML GUI

I have to check if there is windows SAP GUI present in user system. If there is not then I have to show HTML GUI.

Would it be possible to check by any means if there is SAP windows GUI present in the user system? Would it be possible to access windows file types or check windows registry from Java code or VB Code?

Thanks,

Sarita.

    Hello Sartita,

    I don't think that it's possible to check what's on the Users PC because of the sandbox modell of Java and hopfully VB also. If you're not shure that the user has a SAP GUI you have to use SAP GUI for HTML.

    Regards

    Sarita,

    Have you looked to R/3 for a solution to your problem?

    Within the R/3 system you can specify which type of SAP GUI can be used to start your transaction using transaction SE93 (applies to 4.6C but I'm not yet sure on what SAP have delivered for 4.7).

    Here you can specify one of the three supported GUIs:

    - SAP GUI for HTML

    - SAP GUI for Java

    - SAP GUI for Windows

    The following rules apply:

    - The SAP GUI for HTML has preference over the Java and Windows GUIs.

    - The SAP GUI for Java has preference over the SAP GUI for Windows.

    So you could use the above method to force HTML GUI to be used if you wanted to.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Richard
