I downloaded and installed a copy of the lotus notes client (6.5.2) but after doing the install I did the setup incorrectly. I thought that the simplest way to fix the problem would be to un-install the appropriate directories and just re-install. However when I redo the installation process it seems that the process in picking up some existing files since I automatically get a prompt for my ID file. I would like to know where these files are created so that I can delete them - does anyone know?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know about MAC OSX, but in Windows the files server.id, cert.id and admin.id, which are created when you do a new installation, are saved in the Data directory, which is typically C:LotusDominoData.

    Similar to the other guy I am not a MAC expert but the file you are probably looking for the the Notes.ini fileor equivalent. This will stay even after uninstalling Notes. A trick I learnt was that to reinstall notes without having to reload the software is to open up the notes.ini file and delete all the file except for the first 5 lines and then relaunch this will see it as a new installation

    Thanks. The Files for the Mac are different. There are tow files created - a*.plist file under preferences and a file called 'Notes Preferences'. Once I had put these into the trash it seemed to work.

    The Mac version of the notes.ini is the Notes Preference file and it can be found in the Preferences Folder. You can simply drag it to the Trash can and empty the trash. Notes will detect that there is no preference file and will take you through the set-up wizard in order to create a new preferences file.

    Right, you need to delete notes.ini in System Folder/Preferences folder.
