I have a standalone PC with NT 4.0 and Notes/Domino 4.6 3b.  The software is newly loaded. When I try to oreview a form or navigator that is being created in a web browser via "Design/Preview in Web Browser" I get the message "Unable to start the web process, consult the log for additional information. The log shows:
InterNotes(R) Web Retriever starting for....
Unexpected internal error in NSFDbinfoGet, module 'icdb.c', line 152.  This funcion is inappropriate.
Unable to open or create the WEB Navigator database
InterNotes(R) WEB Retriever stopping...
InterNotes(R) WEB Retriever ended...

If I manually start the WEB Retriever and try to Preview...  I get:
You cannot add a directory to your workspace.

I hope someone out there can help me.

For ghassan99:
I am previewing at the moment by running IE and connecting to the location, but it would be more convenient to click on Preview in Web Browser while developing.  Besides which, I would like to know what the problem is.  That function works ok at my workstation in the office and it drives me crazy that I cannot get it working at home.

For mknqau:
The database is stored in the Notes\Data folder

The message is in a Lotus message box. Is this line not the clue to the problem?

Unexpected internal error in NSFDbinfoGet, module 'icdb.c', line
                                    152.

This is an Notes C API function in C code 'icdb.c', who is using this module, is it in your db? Or I'm not sure if its something internal to notes.
did u try re-installing the client?

Ok I did a little research...I think if u go into your location document and say that u want to use IE it will solve your problem, coz whats actually happening is that its trying to start your notes web borwser and this is where it fails...check this:

I  manually started WEB and that stopped the NSFDbinfoGet error, but now when I try to Preview in Web Browser, I get the message "you cannot add a directory to your workspace".
