Ugh. I spent the last 10 minutes searching for saplogon.ini!!
I need to copy it to a Virtual Machine so I don’t have to type in all of the SAP system information. As many of you know, SAP saves SAP Logon Pad entries in a file called saplogon.ini. For many releases, this file resided in the C:\Windows directory. Since Microsoft has began enforcing their improved security model, SAP has adapted and, therefore, moved the location of saplogon.ini to a directory that I can never seem to remember. I have SAPGUI 7.20 running on Windows 7 (x64) and I find myself scouring my hard drive in search of saplogon.ini! I have 38 versions of the file, but which is the right version? Don’t worry, I finally found the right one. But I have performed this search at least three times in the past year! I seem to never make a point to note the location of saplogon.ini. I can’t be alone in this search.
So for future me and you, dear internet community, here is the location of saplogon.ini file in Windows 7 for SAPGUI 720:
If you happen to be running an older version of SAPGUI on Windows 7, your saplogon.ini file may be in the following location:
I would like to point out that there are multiple ways for system administrators to override and/or centrally manage the saplogon.ini. If this is the case, the above locations of saplogon.ini are ignored.
As a final note to my future self: What happened to you? You used to be so cool!
