Works great here. Installed it on half a dozen 7 x64 systems and 2008 R2 x64 and no issues yet.

Still doesn't fix the issues we were having with Revit or the built in Zip utility.

Since installing I am no longer able to access volumes that are on a netware 6.5 server.

Since we updated on Win7 x64 from Client 2.IR1a to Client 2.SP1 it is no longer possible to open Firefox with profile folder located on a mapped OES-Linux NSS network drive.
(File-Caching option in Novell Client is disabled!)

Firefox starts up, but gives the "places-locked" error message every time.
Bookmarks are empty and saved passwords are empty as well. (see: Das Lesezeichen- und Chronik-System wird nicht funktionieren )
btw: When profile folder is copied to local harddrive it works properly, so there is no error in the profile itself.

We even restarted the OES-Linux server, but it solved nothing for us.

Since the Novell Client is the only thing that was updated on the systems it must have tot do with the update to SP1.

.... it's exactly my problem - it's impossible to save firefox profiles
on mappes NSS drives. With the newer version of Firefox i get the
"places-locked" message too. It was working with the Vista client.
Opened a new thread today.
