Novell has versions of IPX.COM and VIPX.386 available through CompuServe. These files are contained within two separate compressed (PKZIP) files and are located in the Novell forum.
If you use one of the new files without the other, Windows halts while loading and returns an error message indicating that VIPX.386 cannot load.
The following error messages may result if you load Windows in 386 enhanced mode with mismatched IPX.COM and VIPX.386 files:
This error occurs because IPX.COM version 3.1 requires a later version of VIPX.386. If you receive this error message, either use an older version of IPX.COM or obtain the latest version of VIPX.386.

VIPX.386 could not load since a proper version of IPX was not in memory. In order to access a NetWare file server from Windows, be sure to run the IPX and Shell programs before starting Windows.
