Novell GroupWise 7 Support Pack 3
Novell GroupWise 8 Hot Patch 1


When users on Windows XP are updating from GroupWise 7 Support Pack 3 to GroupWise 8 Windows client part way through the installation the following error appears and the install fails :

"WMS Notif Window: Msiexec.exe Entry Point Not Found, The procedure entry point WPFGetFAFromList could not be located in the dynamic link library GWENV1.DLL"


It was discovered by the customer that when they removed a GroupWise C3PO from Windows Add / Remove programs then they could update to the GroupWise 8 windows client with no errors.

The C3PO is the GroupWise Import Utility 2.1 for Microsoft Outlook
