How do I fix problems when launching the SAPGUI?

When I launch SAPGUI from a command line with ...&user &passs and &trans filled in I just get the login screen (even though the login and p/w are in the launch command line). What am I doing wrong?

Hi, When I launch SAPGUI from a command line with ...&user &passs and &trans filled in I just get the login screen (even though the login and p/w are in the launch command line). What am I doing wrong?
You need to use SAPSHCUT for this. Maybe you're using SAPGUI.exe instead, which will not accept the username and password as parameters.
You need to pass these parameters:
-sysname = entry name in SAPLogon
-client = client number
-user = user ID
-pw = password (in plain text)

Optionally, you can pass parameter -command to execute a transaction upon logon.

See example below:
sapshcut -sysname=SAP
Production -client=000 -user=sap* -pw=06071992 -command=SM04
