Vista + Novell Client + GetPrivateProfileString()

Has anyone had any issues with the Windows API call
GetPrivateProfileString() returning null values(on Vista workstations,
works correctly with XP) when the INI file is on a NetWare volume?
Seems to work ok when the INI file is moved to a Windows share.

Re: Vista + Novell Client + GetPrivateProfileString()

Forgot to mention, I'm using version 3 of the client for Vista

Has anyone else had this issue and/or found out why this is happening? I am also having this issue and the program works fine on a windows share.

Can't say I see that same result, for what its worth. Both an
application I have that uses GetPrivateProfileString & creation of an
arbitrary GetPrivateProfileString test program appear to succeed when
the target file is on a mapped Novell drive or on a Novell UNC path.

This was on Vista Ultimate 6.0.6000 x86 English against NetWare 6.5
SP7 NSS, with or without "Novell Client for Windows Vista 1.0 Update
3", for what its worth.
