Von Papen had no real political following of his own and his elevation to the chancellorship was engineered by General Kurt von Schleicher, chief advisor to the aged President von Hindenburg.
Von Papen's reactionary policies and attempt to replace the Weimar constitution with authoritarian rule soon alienated General von Schleicher who induced a number of cabinet ministers to reject von Papen's policies and the chancellor soon resigned and was replaced by von Schleicher.
Von Papen was arrested in April 1945 and place on trial at Nuremberg where he was found not guilty of conspiracy to prepare for aggressive war but was sentenced to eight years by a German court for being a major nazi figure but upon appeal was released in 1949 and fined.

Whereas Groener and von Schleicher were prepared to intervene to bolster the government, von Seekt showed, in the Kapp putsch of March 1920, that in instances involving attacks by the rightwing he was not prepared to be involved.
Schleicher's support of the government continued in 1923 at the time of Hitler's putsch in Bavaria (possibly because one of the leaders was his ex-commander, General von Ludendorff).
While initially von Schleicher seemed to support the Weimar republican governments, the economic and political difficulties of the Depression forced him to move to a position where he was responsible for engineering a series of governments with strong central powers based on rule by presidential decree.

Notably, Schacht motivated the coup d'état, by libelling the Lautenbach plan, and von Schleicher, as "Bolsheviks" who had to be stopped, just as Gore's backers use the foolish Gore as their spearhead for putting an "enemy image" on the faces of the pro-national sovereignty governments of Mexico, China, Russia, Malaysia, et al.
From that point, until the London-run coup d'état against the von Schleicher government, thus bringing the otherwise unelectable Hitler to power in January 30, 1933, Germany was ruled by a series of four ministerial regimes, all of which, excepting the von Schleicher government, were tools of Schacht and the de facto Schacht-controlled Center Party.
Von Schleicher was ousted on January 28, 1933.

 Weimar, 1929 - 1933
Kurt von Schleicher was born on 7th April 1882 in Brandenburg, the son of an old local family.
"[Schleicher wished] to remove the last traces of the democratic regime and replace it with an upper-class authoritarian government, the majority of whom would be drawn from the old nobility."
Originally, von Schleicher believed that Brüning was a good choice for Chancellor, but during 1931 von Schleicher changed his opinion, as it became clear that Brüning was unable to rally moderate support behind the 'presidential system', and probably because he was having to rely, to some extent, on socialist support.
