“Unable to update serials database, please try again” What is the problem?

|14||What is the generally accepted practice for distributing new versions of the .exe and .dll files?

|19||We have around 4000 users in our system and would like to work with the “user Catalog” in order to assign different script directories to different user groups. How can we avoid putting all 4000 user names into the user catalog? It is possible to use the SAP roles?|

We are upgrading our operating system to Vista and the SAP GUI to 7.10. Do we also have to upgrade our GuiXT 2006 Q1 ?
I know that there are several places where GuiXT scripts can be located:
We use an RfcConnect statement in our guixt.ini file:
RfcConnect ASHOST=sr5p44 SYSNR=00
This worked fine as long as we used only one system. How can we distinguish further systems in the RfcConnect statement, since we use a different application server and system number for these systems?
We realize that some special characters (e.g. a comma) are not possible as RFC password, i.e. the RFC connection does not work with them. Is there a workaround?
Is the following syntax of the SwitchTo statement correct when connecting to a network file:
SwitchTo “\\\\ac.basgs.com\\dfs\\group\\it\\guixt scripts\\guixt.ini”
