Error "Failed to add message into clients message queue Terminating client"


We are having a weird problem. We developed an interface in ECC6, which produces 3 files. The files are downloaded by the program via GUI_DOWNLOAD function to a PC or Network Location.

The issue we are having is that we can run the program on the same PC several times in a row. There are no changes to the program or the data that is extracted in between the runs. Some of the runs hang for an hour or so until SAPGUI produces the error: "Failed to add message into clients message queue Terminating client". But some of the runs execute without problems, and the files are created. The files are small - max number of records is 3,000.

We found an OSS note on this, but from 2003, obsolete fo rus. We are on SAPGUI 710 and ECC6.

Every time the program hangs, seems to hang at the GUI_DOWNLOAD function. Not only, but if we look for that job in ECC, we no longer see that transaction under the user ID who executed the program. It looks like a disconnect between the two

Most of the times, we have to kill the sessions that hang as they will stay there for hours.

The program generally runs in about 10 minutes, front end always, not background.
