Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR2)


When attempting to change the behavior of the System Tray Icon with the option "Configure System Tray Icon," the options appear as unreadable characters.


Workaround 1:

Install Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR1a) first, configure the system tray actions, and then upgrade to IR2 and be unable to configure the options using the UI until a fix is available. 

Workaround 2:

Export [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NetWare\System Tray Configuration] from a machine configured the way you want it and import that on the IR2 machine.  Note that is HKEY_CURRENT_USER and not HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Workaround 3:

Manually edit the registry to configure the desired options. See Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows: Registry Settings.


ANSI text is incorrectly being displayed as Unicode, and therefore mapping to unintended character values.
