Has anyone found a way to run the messenger client on Windows Vista or 7 64-bit? The installer will not run, no matter which options I try.

You get "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher." or (if using compatibility options) "Error installing iKernel.exe (0x2200)".

If you try to copy the client files from a 32-bit version of windows and manually register the files (using regsvr32) then running NMCL32.exe, you get the messenger message "GroupWise Messenger cannot start because its configuration has been damaged. Please re-install."

Copying and manually registering the files seems to have some hope if you knew how to fix the configuration. Am I missing files that are located elsewhere besides the "Program Files"/"Program Files (x86)" directory or is there some registry setting?

The other question would be. When is Novell going to provide a client installer that will natively install on a 64-bit version of Windows as these are starting to become more common?
