Hi Trev Fernando,

You have executed a GUI patch file, instead of SAPGUI installation files. So make sure you have used the correct files. Please use GUI740 and latest patch according to SAP note 535308.

1. Where can I get the newest compilation of the SAP GUI for Windows Presentation-CD from?

              The newest compilation of SAP GUI for Windows Presentation-CD can be downloaded from the URL "".
Browse to:
-->"Software Downloads"
      -->"By Category"
         -->"SAP Frontend Components"
            -->"SAP GUI FOR WINDOWS"
                  -->"SAP GUI FOR WINDOWS 7.40 CORE"
                           -->"... Presentation 1"

Best regards

Hello Trev,

You are trying to install a sapgui patch without having installed the core sapgui from the presentation DVD.

As already mentioned by SS, 710 is outdated so you should install the 740 sapgui from the Presentation DVD and then install the sapgui patch.

Hi Trev.

You can use the SAPGUI 7.20 or 7.30 verion. SAPGUI 7.10 is outdated version.

if you go into control panel, users and groups is the user you are logged onto in the administrator group?

Also have you logged off and back on yet to retry?

could be some install executable still running in the background somewhere.
