Novell Client 4.81 for Microsoft Windows NT/2000


Blue screen on Novell Client 4.81 in NWDNS.SYS after login.

Blue screen on Novell Client 4.81 in NWDNS.SYS only occurs when the workstation is NOT connected to the network.

Blue screen typically occurs immediately after entering credentials and hitting enter.

Blue screen may not occur for 5-10 minutes after a successful login--if at all.


NWDNS.SYS later than from the Novell Client 4.80sp1 is the culprit.


Remove NWDNS.SYS or back-rev to the version from the Novell Client 4.80sp1.

Under investigation.
