Console 1 in Windows 7

I’m trying to run novell console 1 from Windows 7 and doesn’t want to work.

I’ve tried running console 1 in different compatibility modes but no luck.

It seems you can start console 1 and look at stuff just fine, but the problems comes along when you want to change something. Something such as put rem in front of a statement to map a drive.

There may be and updated version of the java that will fix this that I haven’t found, or does anyone else know a way around this?

I’ve included some pictures of the errors I get.

Thanks

Console1 is quite ancient, and is long replaced by iManager; If you really want to run Console1 try in Windows XP mode.

That first error message may not be related to Windows 7 and Console1.

I see that you got console1 running in Win 7.  Did you modify the major and minor version key values in the registry to bypass the check for novell client 4.91?

I have console 1 running on my laptop with win7 pro and it seems to be working just fine.  What version of Console1, Novell Client?

I believe Console 1 is version 1.36. Do you know what values to modify in the registry?

Just search the registry maybe for anything that says 4.91?

Check this on an XP machine that has the novell client installed and make it similar.  It doesn't effect the novell client from functioning properly from what I have found.

Also, since Console1 is being phased out, maintenance is taken over by the Groupwise team. The newest, and supposedly correct functioning Console1 is in the Groupwise 8 SP1 download.

Well this is somewhat of odd timing in a way, but the college is upgrading to GW 8, and I'll hopefully be able to get console 1 to work in Windows 7 after the upgrade is done.

Thank everyone for your suggestions & time
