How to override default location and name for saplogon.ini


Operateing Systems:
Windows XP Professional 5.1. Service Pack 1

Affected Components:
SAPgui, saplogon.exe

Problem Description:
Sap Gui / Saplogon attaches saplogon.ini from the default Location C:Windows. In some cases it is possible that the location cannot be accessed due to the lack of rights or it might be necessary to use or test different saplogon.ini.

The MS-Windows Enviroment Variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE
controls the location and nameing of saplogon.ini.

To override the default Location C:windows or the default name for saplogon.ini, set the MW-Windows
enviroment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE to the desired new location and new name of the saplogon.ini.

Check You current location and name of saplogon.ini

/SAPGui / Options / Konfigurationfiles / Filename - Path: saplogon.ini = <Your current filename and path>
