> Client version is 4.90 sp2. I've uninstalled and reinstalled only the

parts of the agents I really need to test it (remote man, inventory, nal).
Both the xp and 2k machines are running in VMWare if that helps. ( this
is in my test lab, testing things for production upgrade in June).

Do you have any other software installed?
If nothing else, you could zip your vmware guest and upload it to me as I
use vmware all the time.

Have you installed the vmware tools?
