Subject: Lotus Notes 8 Standard do not start - Please help
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Notes 8 Client
Technical Area: Error Message
Platform: Windows XP client
Release: Notes and Domino 8 - GOLD
Reproducible: Always

First of all I would like to know why users get a msgbox that takes up the whole screen when notes crash , and why is there no link to the actual log so I can read the "whole" log ?

I am unable to start Lotus Notes on 2 dell machines running Windows XP SP2, both machines crash in the same way at startup before the password prompt is shown.

Both machines had previously installed Beta 3 but I did uninstall beta 3 and removed the Notes 8 directory and registry entries before the installation.

On a third machine with the same hardware (and previous beta 3 unsinstalled) everything works fine.

I really need to get those clients up and running , as they are part of an education that will be held very soon.

I have tryed to get around this problem in many ways, including starting notes using nlnotes.exe without success.
