I've just moved to a new workstation which is running the 64 bit version on Windows XP. I've re-installed the ProIV client (we are running Superlayer v5.5) but when I try to launch it I am getting the error message "Trouble with starting up the telnet emulation program". Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be that the client is incompatible with this version of Windows?
Any help gratefully received.

CAVEAT: I haven't experienced this and I don't use PROIV GUI..

But I do recall a lot of people having telnet related problems with XP because if I recall correctly telnet simply wasn't included in Windows XP except for XP Professional.
So if you don't have XP Professional, this *might* be your problem.

I am just guessing and you should should check for yourself, but I thought it might help..
Nothing's as simple as you think

If you can find a pc that does work then you could try copying the telnet from the working pc. Obvioulsy back up the original first.
