Considerations for installing and deploying Notes on Windows

The following information is useful when installing or upgrading to Notes on a Windows client.

  • When installing Notes you must be logged in as an administrative user or as a non-administrative user with elevated privileges. To install as a non-administrative user, an administrator should first run the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and set install privileges to "Always Install Elevated" as below. Once these settings have been made, non-administrative users can then install, open, and use Notes.

    From the Policy Group Editor [gpedit.msc] policy setting:

    1. Click Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Windows Installer > Always Install Elevated.
    2. Click User Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Windows Installer – Always Install Elevated.
  • Notes installation on Windows® supports Windows XP and Windows Vista. For Windows Vista, the User Account Control (UAC) setting should be ON.
  • You can install Notes on Windows in a single user or multi-user environment.
  • If you plan to use Notes shared login, do not select "Client Single Logon Feature" during installation.
  • When installing Notes using the Windows Allclient kit, feature panel installation options are available for installing or upgrading the Domino Designer and Domino Administrator clients.
  • For recommended memory, see the "Software requirements" section of the release notes or tech notes.
  • A summary panel displays the disk space footprint for what is being installed. Install also needs additional temporary disk space. The temporary disk space required is almost as large as the footprint. If you do not have enough space for the footprint and temporary space, the installer will stop you from continuing.
  • Shut down all applications before installing Notes.
  • If you have installed a Notes Beta version, uninstall it before installing this Notes version.
  • On Windows Vista, you cannot upgrade a Notes installation that was installed with UAC turned OFF to a Notes installation that has UAC turned ON. You must first uninstall, set UAC ON, then run the current Notes installer.
  • Shared network installation is not supported for Notes standard configuration.
  • Installation and use of Notes on a USB drive is not supported for Notes standard configuration.
  • Notes roaming user does not support switching a user ID, as noted in the user interface response and the Lotus Notes Support Site.
  • At initial release, Notes is available in US English only. Additional language kits are made available for Notes shortly after initial release. See the language kit topics in this guide.
  • The installation path cannot contain special characters such as # or $.
  • Only one instance of Notes should be installed on a client workstation at any given time.
  • If installation does not complete successfully, uninstall Notes and reinstall. If uninstall is not successful, see "Cleaning a previous or partial Notes installation from your client."
  • The Notes installer does not support upgrade from single user to multi-user, however it is possible to perform such an upgrade using a manual technique. For information about upgrading from a single user to a multi-user Notes installation, see the "Upgrading from a single user to a multi-user Notes installation" topic in this guide.
  • Only one instance of Notes should be installed on a client workstation at any given time.
  • Once you click "Install" on the Notes installation panel, allow the installation to complete. Ending the Notes installation process prematurely can leave files in an unstable state, and may also leave empty folders and miscellaneous files on your system. If you experience problems installing Notes after exiting a Notes installation prior to its completion, see "Cleaning a previous or partial Notes installation from the client".
