File and Print Service for NetWare's (FPNW) user-mode process, Nwssvc.exe, displays an access violation error message due to a Null value being returned.
The function GetFileSecDesc returns success even though it was returned a NULL value when it called RtlGetDaclSecurityDescriptor.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 4.0.
A supported fix is now available, but is not 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.
