Do you have MSXML 4 installed properly?

Re: Properties Error

Hi Kirk,

How are you rolling out the client? This is key to solving your problem. I've seen this error before and it was a corrupt OFVIEWS folder.

Please do let us know - thanks.

Re: Properties Error


I'm running install.bat from the network. ZCM raises runs the install.bat as system user.

Re: Properties Error


I'll try uninstalling MSXML and installing MSXML from the GroupWise installation folder to see if the issue goes away. I have two systems that I know have the problem.

Re: Properties Error

Hi Kirk,

Something to try on a workstation with this error. First, please download and extract a fresh copy of the GroupWise client (use 7Zip to extract the self-extracting .exe file into a folder on it's own). On the workstation concerned ensure that both GroupWise and Notify are exited. Then browse to the GroupWise program folder. Delete the OFVIEWS folder. Copy a fresh OFVIEWS folder from your newly downloaded and extracted copy of the GroupWise client into the same location as the one that you deleted.

Restart the GroupWise client, try open the properties of an appointment and please do let us know how that works out for you.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Properties Error


Tried copying over newly extracted files into ofviews - Did not help

Removed existing ofviews and copying newly extracted files - Did not help

Reinstalled GroupWise - Did not help

Removed GroupWise, 2008 and 2012 Redistributables, MSXML, NT Messaging - Did not help


It appears to be one calendar item for this user. I will have her try from other systems with v8, v14, and web client to see if it follows her.

Re: Properties Error


Steps taken to correct the problem:

Copied the new extracted ofviews to workstation - did not help

deleted ofviews from system and copied newly extracted ofviews to workstation - did not help

Completly uninstalled GroupWise along with NT messaging, msxml, two redistributables and installed - did not help.

I had the user go to a different system with v14 and it had the same error.

I had the user go to a different system with v8 and it did not have the error.


It seems to be only appointments.


Is there a way to turn on GroupWise client logging?

Re: Properties Error

Hi Kirk,

Just to confirm... is it every appointment in a Calendar or Sent Items OR is it only one appointment?

Please let us know - thanks.

Re: Properties Error


Laura,


It is only appointments that have the problem, and new this morning I have figured it out that it is only appointments with resources, ie meeting rooms.


It can be appointments created with v8 or 2014, if it has a resource I get the error. Still troubleshooting, but I think Novell needs to get involved before I roll out to many more v2014 clients.


Are you really in South Africa?

Re: Properties Error

Hi Kirk

I suggest that you open a Service Request with Novell Technical Support so that they can look at this for you.

Yes, I really am in South Africa 🙂 But now I'm curious.... why do you ask?

Re: Properties Error


I opened a request and now they have escalated the SR.


I asked because it seemed like you were responding to my request almost immediately, then I saw your signature, and thought this person must never sleep if she is from South Africa.


Thanks for support.


Kirk
