Tips to install Sap Gui On Windows Terminal Server 2003

Former Member

Does anybody know any method to install SapGui on Windows Terminal Server 2003 to share it to many users ?

The problem is: when I try to install Sap Gui 6.40 via Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs it tells me that I must change the mode with "change user /install". I dont know the reason why it reports me that if I do it via Control Panel. And if I do that and then I launch the installation again it reports me the warning again.

What should I do ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Juan,

Why dont u try SAP GUI for JAVA instead of installing win gui in Terminal Server. Refer my weblog for installation and configuration of SAP GUI for JAVA.

/people/praveen.mayalur/blog/2005/09/28/steps-for-quick-installation-and-usage-of-sap-gui-for-java-in-ep

Users can access through web. functionality is same as standalone wingui.

Hope this helps,

Thanks,

First of all, thanks Praveen for your help.

The point is that in order to connect ten Hand-Held Computers to our SAP R/3 we have developed some screens in a 16x20 window size but we dont know which is the best way to offer those windows for the hand-held computers. We can use a server with Windows Server 2003 for the hand-held computers to connect, using Terminal Services. We have installed and configured Sapconsole on it but maybe there is other way more appropriate to get it.

Do you know if SAP GUI for JAVA can suit our requirements ? Is complex its installation and configuration ?

I would appreciate any recommendation because I'm in trouble with this subject.

Thanks in advance.

Juan,

For hand held computers do u use any SAP mobile components or modules.

Can you run broswer from your Hand-Held. If you can run the browser you can access SAP GUI for JAVA. Installation and Configuration is simple & easy. Just follow my weblog /people/praveen.mayalur/blog/2005/09/28/steps-for-quick-installation-and-usage-of-sap-gui-for-java-in-ep and it clearly gives steps to do...you should be able to configure it in 30 min max.

What R3 version you have?

Thanks,

Praveen

We have SAP R3 4.6C.

We want to optimize the bandwidth in a 802.11b radio. Because of that we dont want to run any application in the hand-held.

We'll intend to launch a remote desktop on a dozen hand-helds connecting the Windows 2003 Terminal Services server. In this server we could run SAP GUI, WebSapconsole or the browser.

Its important to note that the hand-held computers must only show the designed windows (sized to 16x20), removing title bars, transaction bar, menu bars, tool bars, status bars, etc. For this purpouse I think we can use WebSapconsole.

With this method we have noticed that when a error or warning is displayed it hides some part of the screen instead of presenting in the status bar.

I hope you all your doubts are clear now, if not just tell me.

Thank you.

PS. Sorry for my english.

Hi,

as there is no "right" way for a program to find out if a computer is in install mode, sapsetup fails on this sometimes.

use

/skip=wtscheck

or just ignore the error.

¿And how can I use the command, over the setup.exe file, this way?

setup.exe /skip=wtscheck

Thanks for your help.

Hi Juan Carlos,

please run sapsetup.exe with this command line switch.

Best regards,
