Mostly this error occurred and related to ABAP editor. The new editor to be precised. You can switch to the old editor and the error will gone. If you would like to continue using the new editor here’s some tip on how to make this error go away.
Go to, C:\Users\<userdir>\AppData\Roaming\SAP\SAP GUI
And rename the “ABAP Editor” folder to something else. Logoff from SAP GUI and relogin. It will automatically create a new “ABAP Editor” folder with fresh XML configs. Previous XML malformed error should be gone by now. Enjoy coding!
This is the path to get your copy on SapLogon.ini.
But on SAP 750, you don’t need this file. You will need the .xml file instead. Still on the same location. Copy both files and paste it to your new system.
Close SAP Logon and reopen it. Now you will have your previous bookmarks on SAP servers connection.
DIY upgrade on a personal laptop.
Lenovo X240 is a great laptop. Minus the bad display and the badly design touchpad. X230 and X250 touchpad is much better. The button was on a separate panel. Other than that, all is good for this 12 inch small companion of mine.
This is my secondary machine and this laptop always connected to my full hd external monitor. Because I can’t stand working on the horrendous display. Default display panel is a TN display with 1368×768 resolution, bad viewing angle and definitely a small resolution for a programmer. It may be cheap solution for the manufacturer but very bad experience for the consumer I must say.
If you were planning to buy a new laptop, please buy at least a full hd display. Great for your eyes and big screen estate. Much stuff you can fit on your display at a time. You won’t regret it. 1368×768 should be ban on a new laptop!
Lets get started!
