Installing GroupWise 8 Client on Windows 10

Has anyone installed the GroupWise 8 client on a Windows 10 PC?

Yesterday I installed GroupWise 8 client on a Windows 10 PC and the user is now telling me: "I can read mail but can't send, reply, or forward. Error messages, MAPI Session Handle, address book can't run, can't initialize address book."

Any ideas?

thanks

Hi Phil,

Ohhh... definitely not supported and I'm surprised that it even installed! If I recall v8 of the client didn't work on Windows 8 already. Even 2012 had issues with Windows 8.

You are a brave man 😉 I'm afraid to say - time to upgrade.

Sorry, not much assistance.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Hi Phil,

All is not lost - there is always WebAccess?

As Laura said, not supported
options until you upgrade to the supported WG 2014R2:
- application virtualization
- virtualized instances of the Windows you are decommisioning

I forgot to post the final results.

I asked around and found that several users where using the GW 8.02 client on Windows 10 without issue, but they were not using caching mode. Once the user who was having the problem went to online mode he was fine.
