NW ADMIN will not open in WIN2K

I am running WIN2K and I can not open the NW ADMIN tool, i get this error "The dynamic link library CALWIN32.DLL could not be found in the specified path"  i have researched this and this is a file supplied by NOVELL and i can't find it they say it is installed with the client, but it does not??  As well on other workstations i get this error "The ordinal 212 could not be located in the dynamic link library LOCWIN32.DLL"!!  Any clues??

Do you have the Novell Client32 installed?  If not, you will not have the required DLLs.  NWADMN32 will not function with the built-in Microsoft-supplied  deliberately-crippled piece of crap Client for Netware Networks.

If you are using Client 32, make sure its a current version of Client 32. If you installed W2K SP4 after installing Client 32, then re-install Client 32.

And, as ShineOn says, avoid the M$ crapware.

I just want to post and be the 3rd person to say "CRAP" in reference to the MS Client for NetWare! :

You should be using no less than the 4.83 sp2 (and 4.90 sp1a+ for BEST results) client for good results on Windows 2000 in order to manage your NetWare network.

Wow.  I don't know this has ever happened.  You should feel honored, palomod - four comments in a row that call the M$ client the crap that it is.

That would make it 5, but probably doesn't count since I've already said it earlier...

So, where are we with this?  Have you downloaded and installed a recent version of Client32?

(Mojo - are you saying I'd get better results backrevving from 4.90 SP2 with the "D" patch?   Can you 'splain?)

waybadmojoCommented:
Nah, 4.90 prior to sp 1a was flaky, so I was trying to say anything 4.90 sp1a or better with 4.90sp1a+.. No need to backrev from D.

So, what exactly was the problem, palomod?  Inquiring minds want to know...
