The SNA Server Windows NT 3.0 SP1 Client is does not correctly copy the SNANLS files or add the necessary registry settings during installation. Any Windows NT applications which make use of the SNA Server 3.0 SNANLS API character conversion functions will not work properly. This problem affects SNA Server-J client applications (such as the 3270 and 5250 applets, or AFTP), though it does not affect the English version of SNA Server client functions.


The client setup has been updated to correctly copy the NLS files and adds the required NLS registry settings.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft SNA Server, versions 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. A supported fix is now available, but has not been fully regression-tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Service Pack that contains this fix. Contact Microsoft Product Support Services for more information.
