Novell GroupWise 2014 R2


The client is being rolled out using the Baramundi Management Suite.  This is done using the install.bat included in the GroupWise client download file.  This installation however halts on recently installed OSs (Windows 7 / Windows 10 x64) during the MAPI profile creation with an error message.  

The install.bat file was modified to set some additional parameters to get a logging of the installation.  During the step "MakeGroupWiseProfile" two error messages are displayed - even in unattended mode - making the windows installer wait for a user response, which is impossible when the installation was run as "local system", which does not provide any GUI from Windows 8 on.
