Installing GW8HP1 Win32 client as update fails with "unable to register gwcma1.dll"

Novell GroupWise 8


Installing GW8HP1 Win32 client as update fails with "unable to register gwcma1.dll".  The Install routine did end the running Groupwise client, but failed to stop Notify.exe. The fact that Notify.exe was still running caused gwcma1.dll to not get updated during the file copy phase, and as result of it being still the old version, it fails to register.


Manually stop Notify.exe, chose "ignore" in the error message dialog, and after the install completes, immediately re-run the GW8HP1 Client installation in repair mode.
