I hope that somebody can help with the following problem:
Im supporting about 300 PC workstations running Windows 3.1 and 3.11.
More and more of those workstations are being made suitable for hooking up
to several NetWare 4.1 servers.
When i do a client installation of the NetWare drivers, which can be
installed from every NetWare 4.1 server from F:\PUBLIC\CLIENT\DOSWIN and
when i DONT specify in the windows customize options that i want to use
more country codes that are currently installed on my machine, i get on
SOME machines the error "There was a problem loading the unicode tables,
all netware directory services functions are now disables" when they start
up windows. When i do select this option i don`t get this error. When i
reinstall the drivers again with this option enabled it doesnt solve
the problem, the error persists when starting up windows.
The problem obviously has got to do with the fact that the unicode table
(which consists of about 4 files per code) has got to match the codepage
set in DOS and Windows. But when i change or remove all the settings that
has got to do with DOS (config.sys and autoexec.bat) and Windows (system.ini
and win.ini) it doesnt make any difference. I just cannot find the
reason why the windows netware drivers keep complaining. After this message
you can only select bindery resources on the network, not NDS objects.
