When connecting to a pcAnywhere host from either QuickConnect or the SMP Console, the host machine errors and stops the awhost32.exe.
This only happens after updating pcAnywhere solution agent to version 12.6.7
Faulting application awhost32.exe, version 22.214.171.12496
Faulting module awofrwrk.dll, version 126.96.36.19996
"pcAnywhere host has encountered a problem and needs to close"
The cause is unknown at this time but the following steps can be used as a workaround.
