I apparently dropped off list, my bad. Posting to make it appear in
the archives for future help.

Anyhow, I managed to solve it by installing KfW for 64-bit

I can't seem to find KfW for 64-bit - MIT only provides links to 32
bit as far as I can see.

I have 32-bit OpenAFS tool installed. I thought that the tools would
act as a "bridge" between the 64-bit AFS and the 32-bit KfW - if that
is not the case, what function does the Tools provide then?

That's the one I changed

No such file exists.

As far as I can tell yes. The server is configured for that and the
"Cell name" says cmd.nu.

OK - I suppose I will leave it there then

Listing C:\Windows\krb5.ini:
        .cmd.nu = "CMD.NU"
        cmd.nu = "CMD.NU"

        default_realm = "CMD.NU"
        forwardable = "true"

        CMD.NU = {
                admin_server = "thunder.cmd.nu"
                kdc = "thunder.cmd.nu"
                master_kdc = "thunder.cmd.nu"
