Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows
Microsoft Windows 8
Microsoft Windows 8.1


When a user open the "Run" command and enters a UNC path (e.g. \\ipadress_of_OES_server\volumename) the following error is displayed:

The login interface is already is use. Please complete or close the existing login dialog and then click Retry.

However, there is no existing login dialog open.

On Windows 7, the problem does not exist, and the user is presented with a login dialog as expected.


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows (IR2) and later.
