Well, starting the client with a bogus parameter causes that.
Are you sure you're running v2.002?
There's still allot of OS/2 v2.000 clients running (according to the
v2.000 does not support the -update parameter.

Also can you run from a command prompt? Maybe you don't have emx.dll

Or maybe emx.dll is installed your rc5 directory (rather than somewhere
on LIBPATH). If this is the case, then running rc5 from your rc5 dir
would work, but running it when your not in the rc5 dir wouldn't. Maybe
the IBM dialer doesn't set the working directory to c:\rc5.

Hope this helps
