I have packaged SAP GUI 7.1 (Setup Capture using WPS 7 SP3) and on XP SP3 32 bit it works as expected but when installed on XP 64bit the shortcut doesn't fire up the logon screen(no error jsut doesn't start). I have checked the s8l files and they don't seem to be associated correctly. In a 32bit install they have the correct icon and in 64bit there is no icon.
I have tried to manually associate them. I have done a snapshot of the manual install (which also works) and then added the HKCR keys but this still doesn't work.
If I create a shortcut to SAPlogon.exe then this works and the logon pad opens.

Has anyone come across issues with the way MSI creates associations of a 32bit app in XP 64bit? or could it be the 32bit emulation?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried using the native administrative install point tool that comes with the SAP installer? From what I remember, SAP nests approximately over 9000 MSI's into its installation, which makes capturing it something of a tricky and/or bad proposition. I've always had pretty decent results using the SAP admin installs across enterprises.

eh...do use the admin tool supplied by sap though, contrary to what I was told back in v 6.4 there's no need to have sap consultants come in and set it up for you, it's easy to do customize, and you don't have to worry about the nightmare of an unsupported setup capture.
