How to check SAP GUI front end ptach (FEP) version for BW or BI?

Many times strange problems with SAP GUI or bex reports relate to front end patch version. Problems like right clicking not working for some users, issue with decimal places etc. BI 7.0 added more confusion as we have now two front end patches (FEP) for BW - BI, one is for bex 3.5 add-in and second one is for BI 7.0 add-in.

It is a good idea to update FEP when you have strange front end issues for some users with lower patch levels, though in some cases upgrading to higher patch level solves the problem while breaking something else. So you should have minimum testing done before rolling out patch to all users.

You can down load attached SAPVer710.ZIP file to check front end patch on your machine. There are two files in the zip, double click on SApWorkstationPatchlevels.vbs and it will show front end patch levels as shown below.
