Novell GroupWise 6.5 Client for Macintosh


Error launching GroupWise 6.5.6 client for Macintosh.

The error is in a dialog box as follows:

Cannot launch Java application
Uncaught exception in main method:
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /Applications/

The GW Mac client does not load.


This problem occurs when attempting to run the GroupWise 6.5.X client (which will run ONLY on a PowerPC-based Mac) on a Macintosh that uses an Intel processor.

Customers needing to run the GroupWise client for Macintosh on an Intel-based Mac will need to upgrade to GroupWise 7.X, which includes separate versions of the GroupWise client for PowerPC Macs and also for the newer Intel-based Macs.
