Some users can't open attachments in terminal server environment

Several days ago*, our terminal server decided not to allow some users
to open any attachments in Groupwise. Viewing works okay, and they can
"view in new window" and then do file/open from there to actually open
the attachment in its proper application. They miss the double-click to
open feature, though. For them, double-clicking doesn't do anything at
all. Right-clicking to "open" or "open with" also does nothing.

I see that some others have run into this with .pdf attachments; in this
case, it seems to be all attachments, but just for some users. If I log
in to the server as one of these users, I can't open attachments in any
GW mailbox. If I log in to the server as a user who's not having the
problem, I can open attachments in any GW mailbox. Although it
certainly seems like a Microsoft problem, I was hoping someone here had
solved it previously.

GW client 14.0.1
Server 2008

* Onset of the problem coincided with our migrating from a Netware to a
SLES server for files (but not for GW). If that's related, I'm missing
the "how." There have been no such glitches on workstations.

Hi Mary,

Perhaps profile related? Perhaps try to recreate a profile for one of the accounts that are not working?
