User-Specific Automatic Update

If SAP GUI is installed from an installation server, you can enable automatic update from this server. Each time you open an SAP Logon or SAP Logon Pad, the automatic update checks the installation server to see if it has been updated since the last installation. If so, the SAP setup/update will run before the SAP Logon starts.

To configure the automatic update:

...

       1.      Click the SAP Logon or SAP Logon Pad with the right mouse button and choose Configure Auto Update.

A dialog box appears.

By default the automatic update is:

        Switched on if the installation of SAP GUI was run from an installation server

        Switched off if the installation of SAP GUI was run from CD.

       2.      Choose between one of the following:

        Switch off automatic update

        Enable automatic update from installation server

       3.      Choose Apply to activate your selection.

Accessing the System Tray Menu

The system tray consists of a series of icons in the bottom right corner of the desktop. To display the relevant context menu, choose the icon in the system tray with the right mouse button.

You can use the SAP Logon icon in the system tray to do the following:

        Access an SAP System

        Close SAP Logon

        Shut down SAP Logon

        Minimize all session windows

        Restore all session windows

Note

The context menu of the SAP Logon icon in the system tray shows only the sessions that were started by the SAP Logon processes - saplogon.exe or saplgpad.exe. Sessions that were started by other processes, such as sapgui.exe or sapshcut.exe, will not be shown in the session list and cannot be minimized.

For more information, see SAP Note 515156 and its related notes.

Closing or Canceling SAP Logon

To close or cancel SAP Logon, perform one of the following:

        Choose the close pushbutton in the top right corner of the SAP Logon dialog box

        Click on the top left corner of the SAP Logon dialog box with the left mouse button and choose Close.

        Call the context menu for the SAP Logon icon in the system tray and choose Close SAP Logon.

If you have SAP system(s) running, choosing Close SAP Logon will minimize the SAP Logon window. The saplogon.exe process will still be running. Log off from all the systems and then close SAP Logon.

        Call the context menu for the SAP Logon icon in the system tray and choose Shutdown SAP Logon.
