Annoying that this document is not available to the general public - only IBM employees or business partners?

Re: Common reasons why "File does not exist"

Have Lotus Symphony installed embedded in Lotus Notes, as well as Lotus Symphony standalone installed.

In Windows Explorer, right-click a Lotus Symphony spreadsheet file (.ods).

Select "Open with" > "Lotus Notes/Domino". If this is not listed as a choice, click "Browse..." and find it.

Get error in Notes: "File C:\notes\PK.nsf does not exist".

Diagnosis: don't know

Solution / Workaround: open file either with "Lotus Symphony" (standalone, the default) or with "Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets" (which opens in Symphony embedded in Notes).

Re: Common reasons why "File does not exist"

User's home/mail server was S1. User's Location document named S2 as home/mail server. Synchronize Contacts on the Replication & Sync page was failing with "File does not exist" error because Notes was looking for the user's mail database on S2, not S1.

If you do not get a response to your question from the wiki cpmmunity here consider posing your question in the design partner forum or the Lotus Support site.

File does not exist and 8.5 FP1

I just installed 8.5 FP1, and I get this error when I try to add a Full-text index to a database.

Intalled FP1 and started it (btw I got the ndgts.dll file is missing error, which may be relevant).

Added that file from an 8.5 FP1 Domino server

Found that the help files are all missing their full text indexes.

Tried to create the FTIs, which failed:

Common reasons why "File does not exist"

The error can also occur if the user copies the dic files to the Notes/Data folder and tries to install them right away, without restarting the Notes client in between. In addition, the dic files will then be deleted from the Data folder.

Common reasons why File does not exist

This error will occur if your mail preference is set to use a signature file, and that file does not exist. Learned about this with a user that had two laptops, and had set up her signature on one and got the error on the other.
