The first step is to download the corresponding files, which must be an installer and a patch. The files are taking more than 1 gigabyte of disk space when compressed, therefore make sure that you have enough space and a good enough connection before download and install.
Once downloaded, start unzipping the file by right clicking on the archive in the file explorer.
Select the folder in which the files should be extracted. Make sure that at least 2 gigabytes of disk space is available for the whole files to be extracted.
The compressed archive unzipping will take some time, as there are nearly 2 gigabytes of data to create.
Start the installer SetupAll
Once the archive has fully been extracted, navigate to the folder SAP install folder > PRES1 > GUI > WINDOWS > WIN32 > SetupAll.exe and run the executable file to start the SAP GUI 740 installation.
Follow the installer wizard instructions
The SAP GUI installer wizard will guide you through the installation. Start by clicking next.
The second screen will let you select which components have to be installed. Make sure to select the SAP GUI for Windows 7.40 and the Install SAP GUI desktop icon / shortcuts.
Make sure the disk space mentioned in the installer is available on the disk.
After that, select an installation folder, which is by default the program files folder. It is necessary to have at least a gigabyte of free space, and maybe more depending on the options selected in the wizard.
Another screen will ask for netweaver installation directory, it can be left as default.
And the same will be requested for the Business Explorer installation.
The SAP GUI components will be installed on your computer, operation that might take some time, depending on the computer capabilities.
Once the installation is complete, however, do not start right away with SAP, and remember first to install the latest patch for the GUI version.
Repeat operation with patch file
The same operations have to be followed in order to install the SAP patch corresponding to the GUI version. However, the file size is much smaller, with 152MB for the archive. Start by unzipping the compressed file on the computer.
The patch folder will only include one executable file, that can be executed directly.
Once the patch installation has been completed, it will request you to reboot your computer before proceeding with SAP program start.
The SAP GUI installer includes a link to reboot computer, which can be used instead of the WIndows power menu reboot option.
Start SAP logon
Back on the desktop after the SAP GUI 740 installation and the computer reboot, the SAP Logon icon should be available on desktop.
You can open it and start a new SAP session.
