  • Microsoft Systems Management Server 1.2 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q171039


While in the midst of a file transfer session with a Windows 95 or 16-bit Windows client, the Personal Computer Property Help Desk window freezes and none of the Remote buttons work. Dragging the border or moving the window results in window "footprinting," and the Local Files and Remote Files lists do not redraw completely.

This problem may also occur when a file copy is not in progress.


The File Transfer Slave window was closed on the client side.


To work around this problem, select another Properties item and then select the Help Desk item again.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Systems Management Server version 1.2. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
