LANalyzer for Win/95

I have lanalyzer v2.2 running on my 3.x machine monitoring my 3.12 network.  However, I need to move the capability to my windows/95 machine.  This is what I receive when I enter lanalyzer, "VCAFT.386 is not loaded.  The windows system.ini file must contain this file.  Also ensure that di.com is loaded before running windows".
This covers what I do have in system.ini:
[386Enh]
device=c:\LZFW\VTXRX.386
device=c:\LZFW\VCAFT.386
device=c:\LZFW\VTXRX
device=c:\LZFW\VCAFT
This covers what I have in my autoexec.bat
c:\LZFW\di.com
c:\LZFW\apple.exe
I'm very frustrated at to why LANalyzer isn't working on my windows/95 machine.  Please help!

Lanalyzer v2.2 will run with Win95, but you MUST be running Client32.  Also, you will probably need to reinstall Lanalyzer underneath Win95 if you haven't done it already.  It won't work under win95 with VLM's.  Don't ask me why.  The di.com and the other items that you referenced are not needed with the win95 version.  I ran into the same problem with version 2.1, and had to upgrade to to the version that you have.  I think that if you install Client32 and reinstall Lanalyger after removing all of the drivers from autoexec.bat and system.ini you will be fine.  Let me know if that doesn't fix it and I'll revisit the issue on one of my stations at work and get you another answer.

Need info on client32.  Do I add to my individual PC or must I change the entire network?  I'm currently running netware client v1.2 on all the network PCs.  I have downloaded 95enu_d2.exe and 95enu_n3.exe., which do I use if any?  Lastly how do I load Lanayzer underneath win95? (not sure what this means).
I've increased the points and thanks thus far, at least I'm moving forward now...

Client32 is Novell's client for netware networks under Win95.  Either one of the files that you have would work OK.  I personally keep to 95enu_n3.exe on my own pc so that I have access ot all the files if something goes wrong.  Creat a directory, and move the executeable file to it.  Then run the .exe file to extract it.  The install will be in the client32\english subdirectory.  take the deafult settings on the install, and don't select additional configuration at the end.  It's better to reboot and then add additional items later.  

Sorry about the confusion on "load lanalyzer underneath win95".  You will need to reinstall Lanalyzer after you have installed Client32 with Win95.   It should at that point work successfully.  

Client32 actually runs server .NLM files at the workstation.  It's really fast.  I worked with IBM on a beta that used the Novell tcp/ip nlm under client32, running on MS-DOS (yes I know it was odd) and it was super fast.  

Let me know what else I can do to help ort answer your questions.  I'm sometimes a bit brief.  If need be, I can give you an 800 number to call me at during the day while I'm at work.
