I should have responded to this message first.  As far as I know, the
registry problem only occurs on Windows XP, at least corporate edition.
Most of us are on Win2000 and have not had this registry problem.  The
person who got the new PC with WinXP, had Win2000 before and had loaded
WDSC after Notes.  Win2000 did not cause any problems with his PalmPilot
when he upgraded his PalmPilot software.  The techies have Windows XP and
PalmPilots without any problems but they do not have WDSC installed on
their PC's.  The techie working on his PC said that the PalmPilot software
installation was searching for Lotus Notes in the registry for its
installation and could not find Lotus Notes until we reinstalled Lotus
Notes.  The techie saw something in their research about WDSC's registry
use and WinXP  that would cause this problem.  I am amazed they were able
to find the source of the problem on their own.

Glad you solved your problem.

Since your techies already diagnosed and solved the problem, for the
benefit of the rest of us on the list, and perhaps the folks at IBM that
have to write the installer, how about posting what it is that WDSc does
to the registry that is causing problems?  Also, are your techies sure
that the problem only happens on XP, and not also on Win2K and NT?

We are on Win2K and use Notes.  I did a glance through my registry and
everything looks fairly orderly, but I do not know what part of the
registry is getting messed up. We definitely installed WDSc after Notes.
