I am running ZCM 10.1.0 on SLES 10/OES2 and have found a problem when I install the 10.1.0 agent on a Windows XP SP3 machine with the .NET Framework 3.0 SP1 installed.

The Z Icon freezes and will not show properties when I double click it. It appears to be spinning and unable to talk to the server, though everything looks OK in ZCC. On a couple of machines clicking the Z icon will make it disappear. Restarting the PC does not make any difference. I even reregistered one of the problem PCs and the same problem occurs.

I decided to uninstall the .NET Framework 3.0 SP1 on one of the XP boxes and the Z Icon started to work correctly. I did the same on my other two XP test machines and noticed the Z Icon working again.

There appears to be some conflict going on with the .NET 3 and the 10.1.0 agent.
