The Client Executable grpwise.exe Will Not Unload

This document (7003472) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Microsoft Windows Workstation
Novell GroupWise 8


The GroupWise 8.x 'grpwise.exe' will not unload from memory.
Multi-User Calendars are enabled and used.
GroupWise Client does not exit cleanly.
Task Manager is used to remove 'grpwise.exe' from memory.


The issue has been reported to development.

Additional Information

The GroupWise 8.x client seems to have a problem registering and unregistering the Multi-User Calendar entries for users when there are ten or more users shared and accessed.  Less than ten users allows the client to exit cleanly.  Ten or more users shared causes the 'grpwise.exe' to remain in memory indefinitely and Task Manager is required to kill the executable.
