NWADMIN32 - Invalid Page fault

We upgraded the server from 411 to 5.1. Now I can't load nwadmin on my PC. I get the following message:

NWADMN32 caused an invalid page fault in
module NWAPP32.DLL at 014f:09cf36f7.

Any ideas out there in cyberspace? I could not find anything on the Novell or Microsoft support sites.

Thanks
Ben

How are you running NWAdmin? I just create a shortcut to the nwadmin.exe file which is usually in sys:public\win32

The NLS software for NetWare Administrator cannot be loaded

The NLS software for NetWare Administrator cannot be loaded, either because the software cannot locate the licensing library (NLSAP32.dll) or it cannot locate the most recent licensing library. To administer NLS, make sure that the most recent NLSAPI32.DLL file exists in the sys:public directory of your primary server. Then launch NetWare Administrator again. Make sure your primary server is running the latest service provider netware Loadable Module.

The NLS software for netware administrator could not initialize its language resources. The software either cannot find the language resource file or it has attempted to load a resource file that is out of date. All NLS administration will be displayed in English. And the license usage reporting tool will not be available.

NWADMIN32 gets a MS C++ runtime error when creating an NDPS Printer Agent or when launching NWADMIN32.

Snapin / DLL Problem Resolution.

NWADMIN will not load after loading additional software on the server.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Change
Added NetWare 5.0 Support Pack 4

New software (any software with snapins for NWADMIN) was loaded on the server.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cause
NWADMN32 is running out of Thread Local Storage (TLS) handles due to the amount of DLL snapins being loaded. Most Novell products/services installed on the server require Snapins (DLLs) to be copied to the Public directory so NWAdmin32 can manage that product. Having too many Snapins on a server can cause the NWADMIN process to run out of TLS handles. Windows 95, 98, and NT allocate 64 of these handles for NWADMIN to use. After installing a new product, any attempt to launch NWADMIN will error out in any of a variety of ways mentioned above. Windows cannot handle the amount threads being loaded. NWAdmin requires 17 handles, ZEN requires 4, and so on. Certain snap-ins for NWADMN32 require more threads than others making this a problem difficult to troubleshoot, simply installing a program that pushes your "required snapins" over the limit will cause NWADMIN to error when launched.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fix
The newly released NetWare Administrator v5.18, shipped with COBRA, corrects the problem.

1. Copy the contents of the \public\win32 directory to a test directory, i.e. "win32test", to insure data integrity.

2. Download ADMN518.EXE from the support page and save it to an empty directory that the customer created. Expand the file.

3. When expanded the folder will contain a new win32 directory. Copy the CONTENTS of this directory into the CONTENTS of the win32test directory for test purposes overwriting everything. This will replace the old NWADMIN, but retain all existing snapins.

4. Run the new NWADMIN32.EXE. If NWADMIN now appears as it should, it is safe to backup the old win32 directory and rename this directory to "win32". If there are still errors, contact Novell Support Services.

If errors continue to occur try deleting the TLS*.* files located in the sys:public\win32 directory of the server.

<obs.> One customer found that it started working after he ran DSRepair once.

Thanks for all the postings. If d50041 will post his comment as a proposed answer (adm518.exe), then I can give his his well deserved reward. SP4 did not solve this issue, but a separate install off the updated nwadmin did the trick.

Thanks,

Ben
