I've noticed there are alot of postings about Winlogon.exe crashing at
the Novell Login prompt. But, I think my situation is just a little
different than other postings. Or atleast I cannot find the correct
Our pc's are running Windows XP SP2 with the firewall turned off.
Here are the steps of what I've done so far:
1. Upgraded from Zenworks for Desktops 4.5 to 6.5. Rebooted, then could
no longer login at the login prompt without receiving a Winlogon.exe
application error (when I get the application error, if I click "OK"
or "Cancel" the pc reboots). After playing around with the pc, I learned
that I could click the "Workstation Only" box, and login to Windows with
no trouble. After getting into windows, I could call the Novell Login
Prompt, and I could then successfully login to Novell. But, if I
rebooted and tried logging in at the original login prompt, I still
recieved the Winlogon.exe error. I also found out that if I removed the
path "c:\program files\novell\zenworks\" from the PATH environment
variable in windows, I would no longer receive the Winlogon.exe error.
This sounds like a possible solution....but, I think it's more of a band-
aid than a solution.
2. So I then uninstalled the novell client, and then reinstalled Service
Pack 2 for windows, hoping that it would overwrite a possible corrupted
file. Then re-installed the newest novell client....but I still received
the winlogin error.
3. My next plan is to run SFC (system file checker) for windows.

Anyone have any ideas why editing the Environment Variable would make the
Winlogon.exe error stop? Also does anyone have any ideas why bypassing
the first novell login prompt by using workstation only, then trying to
login after getting into windows works fine?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
