DOS/Win Client32, VLM 1.21, and Shared WfWG 3.11?
Posted on 1997-02-28
I manage an installation where a majority of the users start
Windows for Workgroups 3.11 from a shared copy on the network server (SETUP /A, SETUP /N). All stations on the network were upgraded to use VLM version 1.21, and the shared directory for Windows had been updated with the VLM 1.21 divers.
I began experimenting with Client 32 for DOS/Windows for some stations (Btter memory management, more stable...). The Client32 install updated drivers in the shared Windows directory again. Now, I'm having trouble with the stations that are still VLM 1.21. Everything works perfectly st these stations until the user tries to exit Windows. After clicking "Ok" to end windows, the station goes into the Black Screen of Death. A Ctrl-Alt-Del brings up the "Windows has become unstable" Blue Screen of Death, but I can never get back to DOS.
Shouldn't the new client32 drivers be backwards compatible? Is it possible to run both VLM 1.21 and Client32 DOS/Win in a shared Windows environment?
Thank you in advance ...
