Mark, 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. Thanks, Craig Strong **Mark wrote: Craig, 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. Thanks Mark
