How to call a program on a WS with RFC via SAPGUI
Currently I'm trying to implement a remote program call from R/3 via RFC. In section 3.4 of the RedBook, "Calling a Program on a Workstation with RFC via SAPGUI" you use a Function "RFC_REMOTE_EXEC".
I am looking for it/ But in mySAP R/3 installation (version 4.6D) I can not find this function.
Could you tell me how I can call a program on a WS with RFC via SAPGUI? Or is there another way to avoid using the function RFC_REMOTE_EXEC?
The function is implemented in the SAP frontend utility rfcexec.exe. rfcexec is used as an interface shim between SAPGUI and an arbitrary DOS program. This tool must be installed along with SAPGUI. Without it no RFC calls will work unless the called program has an RFC compatible interface.
Best solution: make a complete developer's installation of SAPGUI.
