There have apparently been several things thought to cause the Dr.
Watson errors. You should open a PMR on this to be sure you have the
best solution, but recommendations I've seen include installing the
latest NetView 5.1 maintenance (5.1.3), and installing NT SP6a (not
SP6). If either of these is the cause, reinstalling NetView won't
really fix anything.
A suggestion: When posting here include full product names and version
numbers for everything, because often it's these details that point to
the problems. With NWays 2.1, you're probably installing NetView IT
Director Edition 5.1.0, and the recommended SP for that was, I think,
SP5. Is that what you have?
Hope this helps.
