This update contains all fixes made to NetIQ SecureLogin7.0 SP3 since the release of NSL7.0 SP3.


Installation options:

1. Download and extract this file on a workstation that already has NSL7.0 SP3 installed. Then launch the .msp file located in the folder ...\SecureLogin\Client.

2. Use MSIEXEC to install this Hot Fix and NSL7SP3 together in a single command line operation as documented in the "Installing from the Command Line" section of the SecureLogin 7.0 SP3 installation guide available at

After installing this update on a non-English workstation, copy the localhero.dll (or localhero64.dll) for the appropriate language into the SecureLogin installation directory (by default C:\Program Files\Novell\SecureLogin). These files are located in the "localization" folder, which is in the same directory as the .msp file mentioned in #1 above.


This hot fix cannot be uninstalled independently of NSL7SP3. Use Control Panel, Add Remove Programs to uninstall Novell SecureLogin and this patch together.
