SAPGUI Shortcut with password

By default, and for evident security reason, the login password is not saved when the user creates a SAPGUI shortcut.

Procceed as follow to create a password enabled shortcut :

First, register SAPGui shortcut keys and values in windows registry by running command sapshcut.exe -register
Sapshcut.exe is located in the installation directory of the SAPGUI (C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui)

Then via regedit, enter the value 1 in the key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAP\SAPShortcut\Security\EnablePassword

The sapshcut.exe can be executed in a cmd file  :
sapshcut.exe start -user = MYUSER -pw = MYPWD -language = EN -system-guiparm = SID = "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 00" -client = 100 maxgui

Caution: when using the -pw option, it is imperative to put the shortcut in a safe place as it contains password in clear text.
