The Transport Expresso front-end is a Windows application that is installed on the local PC typically in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Basis Technologies\Transport Expresso
The TE.exe must be run from here but can also be accessed via shortcut pointing to installed location.
To login to Transport Expresso you will require a valid user ID and password in the TE domain controller system. Starting Transport Expresso will present the following login screen:
Select the TE domain controller system and client.
Enter your User ID and password for the TE domain controller and click on the OK button.
TE uses either saplogon.ini or SAPUILandscape.xml files on the local PC to determine this list of systems to connect to. In order to understand where TE looks for the files click on [Config] and it will show all the places on the PC where TE has detected the aforementioned .ini and .xml files:
1) Local TE folder (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Basis Technologies\Transport Expresso)
2) Windows directory
3) Directories stored in the registry by SAP GUI
4) SAPLOGON_INI_FILE environment variable (saplogon.ini only)
5) %APPDATA%\SAP\Common folder (XML only) – this is the default location for the ‘local configuration path’.
Please be aware that Transport Expresso will still continue to look at old saplogon.ini files if the customer moves over to xml-based config files if the historical ini. file still exists, so users may need to check that both TE and SAP are using the same configuration files after doing a SAP GUI or TE upgrade.
