Can the Domino Web Access ActiveX Upload Control (iNotes Class) be manually placed on a workstation?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Can the Lotus Domino Web Access ActiveX upload control (iNotes Class) be manually placed on a workstation?

Answer

The "iNotes Class" and "iNotes6 Class" files are derived from the iNotes.cab file located on the Domino server. The iNotes class files are automatically downloaded when needed, and cannot be manually downloaded from the .cab file.

Please refer to the two tables below for a layout of the behavior of DWA with and without the ActiveX Control.
