Thanks for the additional confirmation. And its absolutely "correct"
that "if this was the version of Novell Client for Windows that is
installed", the Windows 10 upgrade _should_ stop.

Because "nwsndmsg.exe" is a file from the Novell Client for Windows
XP/2003, which is incompatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and/or
Windows 8.x. Let alone incompatible with Windows 10.

But if you can recall or have any way to verify, _where_ did you find
and delete instances of "nwsndmsg.exe" from? e.g. Specifically inside
C:\Windows\System32\, specifically sitting in a C:\Users\ "Desktop"
directory, specifically sitting in its default C:\Novell\ extraction
directory, etc.

Because none of the testing we've attempted here causes the Windows 10
upgrade to halt in this manner, regardless of whether we place a copy
of "nwsndmsg.exe" (and/or the entire Novell Client for Windows XP/2003
installation set) into the Windows directory, or in a location outside
the Windows directory, or use the online upgrade versus the disc-based
Windows 10 upgrade, etc.

So we're still looking for more key data to engage Microsoft with;
specifically "how to reproduce this issue." And we're hoping that
maybe specifically "where" the "nwsndmsg.exe" instances were located
(and deleted from) might help provide that data.
