DPWM32.EXE hangs!

Hi there,

I have the following situation: 500 workstations with Windows XP (all up
to date) with the Novell 4.91 SP3 client (with NDPS) and NOD32
virusscanner. All servers are Netware 6.5 SP6 (4 of them are in a cluster).
80% of the time when somebody logs off or shuts down the computers they
recieve a message that DPMW32.EXE cannot be stoppped. After this one we
get a message that iMon cannot be stopped. In the knowledgebase from
Novell I find that it is a RPM issue but I cannot find a sollution or
where to look. By NOD I cannot find anything about it.

Anyone any ideas?

Re: DPWM32.EXE hangs!

I'm not sure what you mean by "a RPM issue"; that file is part of NDPS
on the client. There are several TIDs on the problem you mention, all
are fairly old and say you need to update the client.

What happens if you uninstall NOD on one of these PCs, does it work OK then?

I did stop DPMW32.EXE from running at login thru MSCONFIG, i.e., we don't
use the NDPS RPM or notification features and the issue was eliminated.

You can try it too.
