Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows


When logging in to Windows 8 using Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 8 (IR10 and all previous versions) using contextless login, if the user name search return multiple entries, thereby requiring the context selection dialog box, that dialog box disappears, leaving a blank screen that contains only the words "Logging in to network ..." and a "Cancel" button.

The contextless login box can be accessed if the user presses Alt-Tab, but this is unsatisfactory, since most users are unaware of this, and on tablet devices, it may not be readily possible to press Alt-Tab.


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows.
