IDM 3.0, GroupWise Driver 2.2, GroupWise 7 == Minimum version requirement not met?
I have IDM3 and the GW driver 2.2 on my development system here, going live tomorrow. It was developped and tested with GW6.5. Was working fine. Then the GW guys upgraded dev to GW7, now the driver won't start. Looks like there's some minimum version at the domain level that the driver isn't meeting. Searching for this, I found one previous reference to this error, but no followup / resolution to the question. I'm trying to pull down the 3.0.1 update right now to see if that helps. Any other suggestions appreciated. (Fortunately, the production environment that I'...
