    Lotus Client doesn't work under Windows 2003. IBM had confirmed it and
    said that there is no chance to run Lotus Notes Client under Windows
    2003.


    What do you think about it? Maybe there is any trick for it?

    Lotus Client doesn't work under Windows 2003. IBM had confirmed it and
    What exactly happens? Which Client version?
    We run 5.09, 6.0 and 6.51 Clients on Windows XP and 2003 and
    everything is fine until now, so I woud like to know which problems
    can occur.
    Only thing we avoid is XP SP2, but not because of Lotus Notes.

    We installed Lotus Client 6.51 on Windows 2003. Installation is OK,
    but when we run Lotus Client or Administrator or Designer only splash
    screen appear and nothing afterthat. The same is when we tried Lotus
    7.0.

    We tried this on several Windows 2003 distributions. On Windows 2000
    (server version too) everything is OK.


    What to do to force Lotus Client working under Windows 2003?

    We installed Lotus Client 6.51 on Windows 2003. Installation is OK,
    Sorry, don't know. We just installed it as usual and it works.

    Sounds like what happens when the notes.ini file points to a location for
    an ID file, that the currently logged in user does not have permissions to
    access. Verify that the .ini file is in C:\Lotus\Notes directory, and open
    it to see what it looks like. Or save a copy with a new extension, and then
    delete all but the first 3 lines after [NOTES]. Try running it again.

  7. I believe the user needs to have Windows Administrator rights, also.

    what about the notes.ini ? does the desktop link point to a valid
    notes.ini ? is there another notesinstallation on the server ? maybe
    also a domino server ?

    And is the location of the .ini file on the system path?
