Can you access other mapped drives from within groupwise? Have you installed any Groupwise Servicepacks?

This version of Groupwise isn't officially supported on Windows 7; See the system requirements of GW7SP4 client:

Yes, can access other mapped drives - appears to be only the netware drives.  Have put on the Groupwise Service packs - the GW client is 7.0.4 Build Number 1833.  I have GW archives on a Netware drive - this is my major issue - the other issue is attaching files to a message from a netware shared drive.  Using Novell Client 2 SPa for Windows 7 (IR5).

What version of Netware are you running? I have seen issues with the Novell Client for Windows 7 having problems with traditional volumes. Moving the archives to a NSS volume could be a solution.

Furthermore IR7 of client 2 solves a similar problem with Groupwise 8 clients accessing Mapped Netware drives.

If you don't have other problems with your Netware drive mappings i suggest you add the Groupwise zone to your question. That way your question comes to the attention of some more Groupwise Experts-exchange members.

In Windows explorer, do you see your mapped drives?  If not can you manually map a drive to a NetWare-based volume?

If not can (assuming you have them) XP computers in your organization map correctly?  I map drives all the time with my Win7 Novell client both manually and automatically through the Novell login script for the container where my user object is located..

If you turn off the auto-close of the Results window on the script tab and login, do you see errors on the drive map commands?

I can see all of my drives in Windows explorer and access the files.  Do not have any errors with the Novell login script.  I have even manually mapped a drive letter to the Netware based volume.  When I go to attach a file to a groupwise message the "netware" drives do not appear.  Also,  I have all of my groupwise "archives" on a netware drive - from a Windows 7 PC I cannot access the groupwise archive (this is the major issue).  Everything works fine on an XP PC. .....
Thanks

I can access the Netware drives from other applications (Office - Excel, Word, PP, ..................) It is just with the Groupwise client.

Issue Resolved............  "Windows 7"  Properties for the Groupwise Client......

Groupwise Properties
                 Compatibility tab
 
Had been set to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:
                                                Windows XP (Service Pack 3)

Removing that setting corrected the issue.

Thanks..
