Attempts to install Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 (852FP1) on Windows will fail for users of the Notes Single Login (NSL) feature if the NSL service is not stopped first, because 852FP1 contains a fix for NSL. The file used for NSL (npnotes.dll) is locked and cannot be overwritten during a typical install/uninstall.
This issue has been reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# MBLT8CCJ3H and is addressed in the below Interim Fixes:
Notes Basic Client: Interim Fix 1 for Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 (852FP1IF1), which is now available for download from Fix Central (direct links provided below).
Notes Standard Client: Interim Fix 2 for Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 (852FP1IF2), which is now available for download from Fix Central (direct links provided below).
Interim Fix 1 for Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 installs without failure by omitting a fix for the NSL issue highlighted below, but otherwise contains all other Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 fixes. 852FP1IF1 supersedes 852FP1. The NSL issue will be re-fixed in Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 2 to replace npnotes.dll during a reboot to avoid file lock conflict. This interim fix should be used with the Notes Basic Client.
Interim Fix 2 for Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 is the same as Interim Fix 1 only it addresses 2 additional items as follows:
1) 852FP1IF2 addresses a problem found in 852FP1IF1 with missing plugin fixes for Lotus Symphony and Domino Designer. These plugin fixes were in 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 but were omitted in the 8.5.2 FP1 IF1 build. IF2 addresses this. (SPR number not applicable)
2) 852FP1IF2 addresses SPR# JEIN8C8TS8 - Support ability for search UI extensions to set result set. This is a requirement for Synaptris FewClix.

SPR# YGAO7UPHML - Under some circumstances Notes Single Login may delay windows logon because of a delay while interacting with Windows performance data on the local machine. With this fix, Notes Single Login will no longer look for performance data so it will not slow down Windows logon. (Technote #1405603)
