Setting Alarm to take any action does not work.

e.g. Configuring an alarm for an appointment in the calendar to launch an application. When we configure to get it to launch a batch file which will run GWsend. Also tried to get it to open an executable, document, image.


It has been fixed in GroupWise 7 Support Pack 3 Hot Patch 2 and later version.
