Yes, currently that is what we are using.

I’m almost to the point where I’m wondering if it is the source of the
problem. Any clue if SAPSweep will delete shared files also?

Currently we uninstall via SMS then run SAPSweep on the machine. Then
manually delete the SAP Directory prior to the fresh install.

I’ve done the uninstall via the installer also and ran into the same
problem. I’ve ran several test installs without SAPSweep but that
causes its own bugs in SAP itself.

have you tried running the program sapsweep after removing the GUI
software. You should find the program in the GUI cd/dvd

> We are in the process of upgrading all of our clients up to patch
level 73 with sapgui 6.20 and BW 3.50 to patch level 12. This is a very
hit and miss upgrade.
> Currently we are not running BW on these clients so we are doing a
complete uninstall/reinstall of SAP/BW.
> We are loosing alot of basic functions with this install. This is not
on every install even though all PC’s are running the exact same image.
> Drag/drop becomes unusable in windows, open in new window/tab in IE6/7
will cause IE to lock up, unable to open up event viewer instances and
several more.
> Uninstalling the GUI does not resolve the issue. System restores will
not fix it either. Currently our only option when this occurs is to
place a new image on the PC.
> Anyone know of any specific software that conflicts with this gui
patch level that i could test against our load? Or, if there is a SAP
cleaner software that will not delete shared files. Any suggestions
