Re: Installing and updating IBM Lotus Quickr Connectors 8.5

Hi James,

If you are installing the connectors into Notes with embedded Sametime and Symphony, you only need to install the Notes connector and embedded Symphony connector, use the Notes directory

i.e C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes for both the Notes and embedded Symphony install location

The Sametime connector included in the install is used for stand-alone Sametime only. If you have embedded Sametime with Notes, you install the Notes connector.

thanks, Ann

minor update, the installation of using the symphony embedded in lotus notes work, you just have to be careful and select "Lotus Symphony ... Lotus Notes Embedded" edition and not select the Lotus Symphony ... Standalone Edition" and attempt to point the installer to the location where symphony is installed under.

Re: Installing and updating IBM Lotus Quickr Connectors 8.5

I cannot get the Lotus Quickr Connector that comes with Quickr 8.5.1 to install with either the integrated Sametime or Symphony when I point the Connector installation to the proper directory for the embedded Sametime and Symphony for my Notes 8.5.2 client. In my case both Sametime connect client and Symphony are installed at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\eclipse\plugins\com.ibm.rcp.base_6.2.2.20100729-1241\win32\x86

At the end of the install the connector install complains it cannot access or write to

"C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\eclipse\plugins\com.ibm.rcp.base_6.2.2.20100729-1241\win32\x86\framework\rcp\deploy\install.update.xml" It turns out that default location for the install.update.xml is located at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\deploy

So this is a bug. I know in this wiki above it says the connector cannot install with the embedded Sametime client in Notes, I think that should be fixed by allowing the end user to manually point the quickr installation to the install.update.xml file (really it should not require users to do this but as a stop gap measure at least allow a person to point the install program so it won't bomb out.

I tried this install without selecting sametime but just trying the embedded symphony client that comes with lotus notes and I get the same installation failure, specifically the installation program complains it cannot write to

"C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\eclipse\plugins\com.ibm.rcp.base_6.2.2.20100729-1241\win32\x86\framework\rcp\deploy\install.update.xml"

fyi - my OS is Windows 7 64 bit
