How to install an add-on using a SAINT transaction in SAP Basis

A SearchSAP.com reader is using a SAINT transaction in SAP Basis and wants to install an add-on.

I have an add-on to install. I'm currently using a SAINT transaction in SAP Basis. The .SAR file is decompressed...

and a .PAT file is created at the Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) directory, but it is not listed on the screen for the add-on selection. As such, I cannot continue with the installation.

This may depend on how you proceeded with the deployment. Go through the following steps to troubleshoot:

1. Connect to the SAP system, client 000.
2. Call transaction SAINT.
3. Refresh the import buffer for SAINT.

From the menu, select "Load Packages" > "From Application Server".

4. Next, press the "START" button.

If the add-on is not displayed, it is probably not applicable to your system.
