  4. In the Display Profile Parameter Attributes window, press the Change Value button on the toolbar and set the New value of sapgui/user_scripting to TRUE. Save the changes.
  5. Log off and back on again to see the change into effect, as it does not apply to sessions that are currently running.
Note:

The status bar message “Parameter name is unknown” refers to the fact that the sapgui/user_scripting parameter cannot be changed using this transaction because a SAP server package is missing. Install the missing package, and try again.
