Using AutoCAD 12, it is not possible to open multiple files from within the AutoCAD program, when the files are located on an NSS Volume.

No errors are returned. The first file opens fine, but when attempting to open the next one by double-clicking the filename inside the SSM (Sheet Set Manager, where you can open multiple .dwg files that are part of a set of plans), it just blinks and does not open the file.

Regardless of the number of files defined and appearing as part of the Sheet Set, the first one (can be any file) opens fine, but any file chosen as the second file will not open.

The same operation is successful if performed on Windows XP with Novell Client 4.91 SP5, or accessing the files on a local drive or a Microsoft Share.


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows or later.
