During GroupWise installation, received error: Agents need to have OpenMotif installed in order to run. Please install the openmotif-libs package before proceeding with the installation.


The install was being ran from the \gw802hp3(96933)\ directory.

Renaming \gw802hp3(96933)\ to \gw802hp3\ allowed the installation to continue without receiving the OpenMotif error.

Special characters are not allowed in the installation directory name.
