8.5.3 Standard Client Fails to launch as a limited user after applying Upgrade Pack 1

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

After applying Notes 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1 to a multi-user, standard Notes client on Windows 7, the client fails to launch for limited users. 8.5.3 was working fine for these limited users, but after Upgrade Pack 1 is applied they can no longer launch Notes. Administrators on the same machine can launch the client without issues.

Steps to reproduce:

*Issue is seen on Win7 32-bit*

*Issue only occurs in a multi-user installation*

*Issue only occurs when Notes is not installed to the default location of C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes.

1. Install 8.5.3 client-only, standard, multi-user on Win7 as an Administrator. Install it to a non-default directory, such as C:\Lotus\Notes.

2. Switch OS users to a limited user and launch Notes. It works fine

3. Switch back to the Admin account, install Upgrade Pack 1

4. Switch back to the limited account. Notes now hangs on startup with "Loading... please wait"


Cause

This is caused by an access issue to one or more files laid down by Upgrade Pack 1 which need to be accessed by the limited user. In the Workspace logs of a failed launch we see the following:

Resolving the problem

This has been reported to quality engineering under SPR # BJGY974JZR and a solution is currently under investigation. In some cases, simply launching Notes as the Administrator after UP1 was applied was seen to resolve the problem. In other cases, the client needed to be reinstalled, without UP1 applied.
