Novell GroupWise 6.5

Novell GroupWise Windows Client


Multiple runtime errors occur when logging in to the GroupWise client from a non-Administrative account. The grpwise.rpt file found under the temp folder shows an ACCESS_EXCEPTION in c:\novell\groupwise\GwvrWiz.dll.


A third party plug-in to GroupWise called the GroupWise Vacation Rule Wizard had been installed to the machine. This application doesn't have the ability to run as a user without rights. Removing the application eliminated the crash.
