Hi guys,

I have a really stupid question. Looking at this for windows:


My understanding is as follows:

DIR_EXECUTABLE: <DRIVE>:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\exe\run\

DIR_INSTANCE : <DRIVE>:\usr\sap\<SID>\<instance>


Does the following hold true:

sapcrypto.dll =  $(FT_DLL_PREFIX)sapcrypto$(FT_DLL)

Or does it get broken down further i.e. $(FT_DLL_PREFIX) means something else?

Kind Regards,



Hello Johan,

You can check the value of such system variables in report RSPARAM (execute through SA38 or SE38). You'll see there that for windows:


FT_DLL_PREFIX: <blank, no value>

FT_DLL: .dll

Therefore, this holds true:

sapcrypto.dll =  $(FT_DLL_PREFIX)sapcrypto$(FT_DLL)

I hope this clarifies.

Best Regards,
