IMPORTANT UPDATES

  • A missing file in the Windows versions of Notes 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 and 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 Interim Fix 1 is impacting some Windows applications, preventing them from running (see examples below), and thus those original fixes were pulled from Fix Central and Passport Advantage. 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 (and subsequently 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 Interim Fix 1) required a Microsoft runtime re-distributable to be included in the package. The run-time was missing a key file.
  • A revised Interim Fix 1 for Notes 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 was posted to Fix Central on 14 May 2013 (new dowload links provided below). This revised fix supersedes Notes 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4.
  • If you installed the Windows version of 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 (released 16 April 2013) or if you downloaded and installed 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 Interim Fix 1 for Windows between 01 May 2013 and 13 May 2013, then we recommend you perform one of the following options:
      -- Option 1: Download and install the new Interim Fix 1 for Notes 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 (for Windows), or
      -- Option 2: Download and install the MSVC2005 redistributable package.
