we at Johannes Kepler University run a pure Novell network environment
without any MS network stuff. To avoid long timeouts browsing the network in
Windows XP and for security reasons we have removed the Microsoft Client for
Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Network
Service on all Windows XP workstations at our campus. Distributing
Applications with Novell Zenworks 7 Application Launcher was working fine in
this environment.

Now we are in progress moving to Zenworks Configuration Management and
noticed that ZCM App Launcher needs the Microsoft Client for Microsoft
Networks installed on the XP box to be able to distribute Application
Bundles to the workstation.

My question: Does somebody know why ZCM App Launcher needs this creepy
If possible we want only install the libraries ZCM needs (for security
