  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11

This article was previously published under Q107578


If you are using Windows for Workgroups 3.11 with Novell connectivity, an MS-DOS virtual machine (VM) may stop responding (hang) if a NET START FULL command is issued before opening Windows for Workgroups in enhanced mode.


To work around this problem, do one of the following:

  • Do not start the full real-mode redirector at MS-DOS before loading Windows.


  • Use the NET START command instead.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows for Workgroups version 3.11. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
