|Innocuous. It does not do anything of any real value, unless you need it. If you are using the NDPS, you need it, and you should leave it alone. If not, it's small, so leave it alone anyway. Twitch|

|Corporate environment -- needed for NDPS|
|DPMW32.EXE is what allows Novell NDPS printers to be deployed to your workstation automatically from a centrally managed location. The technology makes printer management, from an administrators perspective, easy. For end users, you automatically receive the printers that are assigned to you. No hassles or manual installs. Remove this and your printers will stop working. See also: Link Marvin Huffaker, Novell Master CNE|
|service pack 2 attempts to block this, but as an environment that uses novell and windows it is a necessary system. thefirebuilds|
|Novell's printing methodology before iPrint that many Novell shops still have in some production since iPrint didn't reproduce all NDPS's functionality until recently in OES2 Andy Konecny|
