First of all, Notes 8.0.2 isn't supported on Windows 7. 8.5.1 was the first
release supported on 7.

Secondly, check the launch properties of the Calendar that the user is
trying to open. Make sure that it isn't toggled to just launch as last
viewed but that it's set to launch the MailFS as the designated frameset.
This could be the primary problem - I've seen it many times.

What is the template version of the mail database in question?

If you're really considering an Exchange migration, please don't compare
the Notes Basic client to Outlook. Put Standard on some machines and let
the users see the HUGE improvements.

You said they're running Basic because "it's what they know". I have to be
brutally honest here - Windows 7 is as much of a change compared to XP as
Standard is as compared to Basic. Windows 7 isn't "what they know" yet it's
being used anyway. If you have people who are going to Windows 7, then
force them to use the 8.5.3 FP1 Standard Notes Client as well. Take the
plunge and see how much they like it over Basic. Sure "it's just Windows"
and things are mostly in the same spot with a huge makeover. That's the
same thing with Standard. It's e-mail and users can figure out the
subtleties of the changes. It's just wrapped in a prettier package. Just
like Windows 7 and XP... ;)

Before that decision is made, I recommend moving to current versions of
Domino and Notes. And the standard client instead of the basic client. It
may kill that decision. It stopped the whining of a few vocal people who
came here from Exchange shops. "Smart Upgrade" helped us roll out our
upgrades. Wasn't exactly painless but it went quite well. Sure helped
cut down on a lot of manual labor. Yes, we did upgrade a bunch of PC's.
But it was time. We added some views to the names.nsf to process the very
bottom of the administration tab of each person document. Like
"By Client", answers which user is running which version
"By Client - highest release only" thins above down to only that user's
highest release, not every release they ever ran. Restated, I can get a
list of all users still running 8.5.2FP1. 8.5.2 with no fix pack is the
oldest we have. Well, actually we gave an IBMer remote access via VPN to
do Domino tuning recently - he's still only running 8.5.1FP5.
"By PC", shows me all pc's, what version of notes that pc has ever ran and
who ran that release

All users are running the basic client - it's what they know. Win7 & the
full client may be too much all at once, but I get your point.

We are at 8.02 with FP5.

As for exchange, that decision hasn't been made and if it is, it won't
happen until 2013 at the earliest.

Thanks, Jerry
