I'm having an issue with the "Novell ZENworks Agent Service" crashing. The agent is 13.3.1.41750 FTF Roll Up 1 and I'm currently trying them on Windows 7 Pro 64bit, all built in VMware player if it matters. I've tried this even down to a bare bones windows install and it still crashes soon after boot. The same issue came up on a fresh install and an upgrade from 11.3.0. Strange part is the crash message looks like it involves the Inventor system which we aren't even using right now, unless that is the issue. Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas on what I can do to stop it. Here is the crash message from the zenworks log.
