GroupWise 2012 SP2 Windows Client - Windows 8.1 x64

I have installed GroupWise 2012 SP2 Windows Client on a Windows 8.1 x64 laptop.
I can run GW for the first time, and it works fine.
When I close GW, and then reopen it I get the following error:

GroupWise is not properly installed. The GroupWise components could not be initialized. Please run GroupWise setup, or contact your system administrator.

A reboot will not fix the problem. If I completely remove GW and then reinstall it works fine, however once you close GW and then reopen it, you get the above message again.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank to everyone in advance.

Cheers,

Hi Anthony,

I have not experienced this error. Just a question: Did you install Office 2013 with Outlook 2013 on the same machine?

Cheers,

Hi Laura,

Yes I have the entire Office 2013 suite installed. Maybe Outlook is the problem?

Possibly, which was installed first?
Both Outlook and GroupWise use MAPI, and the files Outlook places are the
newer one, but it doesn't always do so if the older ones are in place.

Re: GroupWise 2012 SP2 Windows Client - Windows 8.1 x64

Hi,

Is your Office 2013 the 32 bit or 64 bit version? I know that the 64 bit version of Outlook does not play nicely with GroupWise.

Let us know.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Hi,

Yes I resolved the problem.
1. Close GroupWise.
2. Copy C:\Windows\SysWow64\mapi32x.dll to C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\GroupWise\mapi32.dll (you will need to copy and rename as shown).
3. Run GroupWise

Otherwise if you need help, my email is hilla@mta.qld.edu.au

OK, Thank you.

In my case, I install the new groupwise client (2012 SP3) and work.


Thanls again.

While this may work for you, this is absolutely not how this is supposed
to work, and neither supported by Novell nor Microsoft.

Just saying before others deploy the same solution.

This is/was an ongoing thread with many open questions. There are many
possibilities.

As I said, it might "work" short term. But one isn't supposed to rename
and copy around vital microsoft system dlls into places where they
absolutely don't belong..
The next windows update might cause havoc to such a "solution". Core
Windows DLLs have no business sitting in program directories, it's a way
back into Windows9X DLL Hell...

You are of course absolutely free to do whatever suits your environment,
but I can only but warn everybody reading this from applying this as a
proper solution. It *wil* come back and haunt you big time sooner or later.
