The issue can be resolved by uninstalling and re-installing ConsoleOne and then adding GroupWise snapins to it.
Procedure :
  1. Browse to C:\Novell\consoleone on Windows workstation and rename consoleone to consoleoneold
  2. Browse to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator or Administrator equivalent user and search for .consoleone directory and rename it as consoleoneold
  3. Browse to GroupWise Software installation directory | ConsoleOne | Run install.exe and proceed with further installation of ConsoleOne. Once the installation is complete, launch ConsoleOne and check to see if it comes up fine with no error.
  4. Browse to GroupWise Software installation directory | admin | C1ADMIN and copy all folders to C:\Novell\consoleone\1.2 and replace them with existing folders.
  5. Start ConsoleOne and it should come up fine with GroupWise snapins.
