Bex 3.5, Netweaver 7.10, Windows XP & SAP GUI Patch 6

Postby lmatura » Tue Oct 21, 2008 12:10 pm

With the combination above, I am able to edit, build and design queries using the query designer for 3.5. However, I am unable to access Netweaver from the Start/Programs/SAP menu. I get the SAP logon panel to access our Business Warehouse environment, key in the information and get the initiating page for SAP Netweaver and that is all. The program does not show as running in my task manager.

I can use the SAP logon to initiate Netweaver 7.10. The SAP GUI is at patch 6. I execute the "Start Business Explorer" and I get the toolbars in MS Excel for BEx Analyzer Toolbox and BEx Design Toolbox. I can open the query and run it but when I attempt to edit the query, I get the message:

"A critical program error has occurred. The program will now terminate. Please refer to the trace for further information"

If I attempt to create a new query I get the same message.

The trace file information for the new query build is:

I tried to find information off the SAP website and couldn't locate anything on this issue and will be attempting to have a note created.

Any suggestions?

Thanks...

The answer has been found for this one.

The problem was that my PC was set up for Windows XP Classic style. I had to change the setting to Windows XP style. Supposedly, this was not to be an issue and that this had been tested by SAP. Obviously, it wasn't. From what I have found out, SAP has been working on other styles to ensure that 7.10 will work with them.

I have a similar issue:
I have now spent about 20 hours trying to resolve this issue. I receive the following error message when attempting to open *any* BEx Query: “A critical program error has occurred. The program will now terminate. Please refer to the trace for further information()”. I’ve provided a video example of the scenario (couple minutes long): http://www.altnetwork.net/misc/Analyzer ... Error.html
I *cannot find the trace file* in the standard C:\DOCUME~1\BaldwiJE\LOCALS~1\Temp\BexAnalyzerTrace.txt path. I cannot set/change the path/name of the trace file because the Trace File Name text box is grayed out (disabled) in BEx Analyzer > Global Options (see the above flash video link). I know that I am using the same Business Explorer and GUI build as my colleagues and I am able to login with my ID on their machines and not receive an error. We are using SAP BW 7.01 and I am using Excel 2007. I have entirely reinstalled Microsoft Excel, and the SAP Frontend including Business Explorer and SAP GUI. I’ve monitored using both windows process monitor and windows process explorer but nothing is readily apparent as an issue (glad to share the process information if someone thinks it might help). No relevant event logs in the Windows event viewer.
Per the sapbexc.xla file, my system configuration is as follows:
Computer Name: DEN-SSI-SYS-L61
File Location: C:\DOCUME~1\BaldwiJE\LOCALS~1\Temp\sapBEX_PC_0614_103147.xls
Check done on: 6/14/2011 10:31:47 AM
Excel Version: Excel 2007 (12.0.6535.5002)
Windows Version: Windows 2000 (2195) Theme: %SystemRoot%\resources\Themes\Windows Classic.theme
Default Browser: Internet Explorer (7.0.6000.17093)
SAP GUI: 720 Patch 1
