Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Application Launcher (NAL)
Microsoft Windows XP Professional


On some workstations, both the NAL Window and NAL explorer will repeatedly read the App:Icon attribute for each associated application object.
Once all of the reads have happened the icons will flash.
After a few minutes the process is repeated.
The problem arises when a "force-run" application object fails to meet availability requirements and the option to always display the icon is selected.
If the object if not force run or does not have the option to always display the icon, then the issue does not occur.
The same problem can occur using legacy system requirements if the "Show Application icon if criteria are not met" option is selected for force run applications.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, available at
