Download Description

The SUSetRunAsWizard.zip file (see FTP link below) contains the IBM® Lotus® Smart Upgrade Run As wizard, which can be used with Notes versions 6.5.x or 7.0 or 7.0.1.


For customers running Notes 8.x client or Notes 7.0.2 or above:

Do not use the version of the wizard provided in this document; this older version of the wizard causes problems with installation of Notes 7.0.2 and above.

The program directory of Notes 7.0.2 and above contains an updated version of this wizard (SUSetRunAsWizard.exe) and should be used rather than the wizard version noted below.

Please note that newer versions of the wizard that ship with 7.0.2 and above are backward compatible; they will work with 6.5.x and the earlier 7.0.x releases.


Run the IBM® Lotus® Smart Upgrade Run As wizard (SUSetRunAsWizard.Zip) to create an executable file (SURUNAS.EXE) that IBM Lotus Notes® client users can then run to upgrade their Notes clients.

Lotus Notes Client users can use the Smart Upgrade Run As (SURunas) feature to upgrade to a newer Notes client release. Smart Upgrade Run As is designed for Notes client users who do not have administrator privileges but who still need to periodically update their Notes client software. Notes client users with administrator privileges on their local computer can still use Smart Upgrade.

As previously mentioned, you run SUSetRunAsWizard.EXE to create an executable file, SURUNAS.EXE, that Notes client users can run to upgrade their Notes clients. This new executable file runs within the standard Smart Upgrade program on the local workstation, as a user with administrator privileges. You specify the administrator user name and password while completing the Smart Upgrade Run As wizard. While the wizard is running, you specify the file, usually a setup.exe or similar file, that is to be run when the user runs SURUNAS.EXE. The setup.exe file that you specify is either stored in SURUNAS.EXE or you can specify a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to a shared network drive from which that setup file can be accessed. In addition to specifying the setup file to be used, you also specify any other files to be included in the install kit. The Smart Upgrade Run As wizard creates the install kit that the Notes client end users run to upgrade their Notes clients.

Note: If you have multiple domains, and if you do not have a user name and password that can be used across multiple domains, run the Smart Upgrade Run As wizard for each individual domain.
