SAP Error - SAPWR Download could not write

I have a user receive an error SAPWR Download, could not write to a file:
C:\Program Files\SAP\Frontend\sapgui\guixt cache\sapwr\P03\zgxt\session.txt: Permission

We just added this person to our domain and by default I beleive you don't have admin right. (what we want)

I know it's a right issue but is there a way to prevent this error from happening without giving users admin right to their computers?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


There are two options:
1. Switch off file cache for GuiXT ( Click on Edit->Profile  in the GuiXT window, block "File Cache" in the middle of screen).
2. Provide required access rights (create, change) for directory C:\Program Files\SAP\Frontend\sapgui\guixt cache (without giving users admin right to their computers)

Hope this helps!

yeah this is a frontend client problem

What OS does the client use to access SAP is my first question.

But it sounds like the SAP gui has not been installed correctly on this PC did you load the SAP client then the SAP gui patch 19 to allow you to install the patch 24 you have to install three versions of the software to get to patch 24 it has been a while since I have instaled the gui but if you do not install the client properly then you will get that error.

At this stage though you will need to run the sap uninstall utility to nuke all the files I had to do this myself about 2 years ago I can;t remeber the name of the utility but it comes on the install disk.

Once you have installed the software correctly copy the 3 sap files from a good client. saplogon.ini and a couple of others from the system32 or system folder.

If this machine is older than windows 2K you may not be able to run client patch 24 and may have to use an older sap frontend client.
