GW5.5 Remote and Win2000 Pro TAPI services corruption.

GW5.5 Remote and Win2000 Pro TAPI services corruption.

GW5.5 Remote and Win2000 Pro TAPI services corruption.

I've had two instances of GW5.5 Remote corrupting the Win2000 Pro TAPI subsystem. In both cases it was caused by trying to create a new location I was dialing from e.g Office and Home.  This corruption caused all dial up connections to cease working and generate many "Dr Watson" captures every time I try to connect.  I've found a TID that describes this, but there is no workaround other than Novell's suggestion of reinstalling Win2000.  Novell's TID # is 10052839.

Has anyone else experieced this and does anyone know how fix this without a full reload of the OS?


RE: GW5.5 Remote and Win2000 Pro TAPI services corruption.

When Windows 2000pro is installed ie on a oem machine It's preinstalled, many times the OS is not installed correctly I've had many instances where the OS behaved poorly on a preinstalled machine. Make sure that the Os is properly installed and the New MAPI componets are installed correctly, on you version of NT. I have not Had any sucess repairing a 2000 box without reinstalling. The System is too protected and get corrupt with changes made to it.
