We are installing the gui from the network at our site. You basically need to run setup for sapgui and choose the network install option. What you end up with is a copy of the CD on the network. It also installs the SapAdmin on the PC you install from. You can use SapAdmin to custimize which components are installed. In the simplest form, you can just execute a bat file on the network to install the gui. I know it can be automated more but this works well for us at the moment.

We are at release 4.0B. Some of our PCs use SAPGui 4.0B, some use 4.5B or 4.6B and some use 4.6D. All have been installed individually on these PCs.
We are attempting to upgrade all PCs to the latest version of SAPGui 4.6D. Note 361222 raises some concerns:
1. To date, we have been using manual unpacking and re-installing the 4.6D version when and where necessary. Note 361222 states that "The manual unpacking is no longer possible with these and subsequent patches." Okay, I can live with that. However, the note goes on to say that the new automated patch can be run at the client level. Horray! BUT...when I run it, I get an error message that I must run SapAdmin before proceeding. What is SapAdmin? How do I get to it? I hope that it isn't a new application in a later release of SAP because if it is, the termination of manual unpacking is not logical. 2. The Note is unclear as to whether this will work with older versions of SAPGui? Will it? Must I upgrade every PC with an older version of 4.6D before I can even think about applying the new patches (if, in fact, it is possible)? 3. This would be so much easier if I could get a network installation process going. Can anyone point me in the right direction to investigate how that would be done?
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
