Prepare an installation server by starting setup.exe and selecting "Administrative setup".
Select the following link:
SAP APO --> SAP APO 3.0A or 3.1 --> Binary Patches --> SAP GUI FOR WINDOWS 4.6D, 6.20 --> Win32
Always download the latest APO front-end patch.
The procedure is described below:
1. Load the latest patch locally on the GUI server apo30A_Y.exe (Y denotes the latest patch level)
2. On the installation server, start the SapSetup configuration program SapAdmin from the netinst directory. Note that you must call this program via a UNC path:
SAP APO --> SAP APO 2.0A or 3.0A --> Binary Patches --> SAP GUI FOR WINDOWS 4.6D --> Win32
3. For Release 4.6D, select the 'Extras --> Import Patch' menu option.
Specify the patch file that you would like to install and click on "Install".
In the clients:
4. Start the installation as normal with Netsetup, select APO Addon and install.
Do not register OCX files manually under any circumstances. If you do so, correct deinstallation of Netinstall will no longer be guaranteed.
For standalone PCs in particular:
This procedure only applies to the 4.6D GUI.
If an installation server is not available, you still have to option to install the new patch.For this, you require the setup update, localpat46D_Y.exe (Y denotes the current patch level).
The 6.20 GUI version already contains this special standalone patch.
Therefore use sapsetup /patch to start the sapsetup.exe installation program from the SAPpcnetinst directory.
We also recommend that you install the latest SAPGUI patch.
