1.You can create a database in R5 and save it with the extention .ns4
This will keep it in R4 format....

2. Install 2 different Notes versions in different directory's...examp. put R5 in c:\Notes and R4 in c:\NotesR4....Make sure the notes.ini exists in both directory's..examp....c:\Notes\notes.ini..and..c:\NotesR4\notes.ini....

To run the apps at the same time change the shortcuts from "notes.exe" to "nlnotes.exe"

Hi tgebruik - that was pretty damn quick !!!

Does that mean I can take a DB that I developed in R4.6 -rename it "database.ns4" and then continue to work with it in R5 designer and still publish it on domino 4.6 ?

when I try and install the second version (R4.6) of notes the setup procedure crashes and gives the error message "NOT +4380; illegal Function Call" - is this a conflict ? I have R5 designer and domino installed already...

Yes, you can rename it to ns4...but keep in mind that you must choose only 1 application to do design in the future...

Do not change design in R4 after you have allready edited in R5....this will bring inconsistency.. :-(

So, you created a db in R4...rename it to ns4....edit design in R5..but do no editing in R4 anymore..than all goes well..:-)

for your information...ns4 will keep you from ODS changes....(to prevent exidentally compact functions..)

If the project scope is 4.6..I advice you to design in 4.6, not in R5.

Install both clients and do your developing in 4.xx

ODS is short for On Disc Structure..the latest (R5) is 4.1..R4 uses 20

The ODS version is the reason why you can't open an R5 db in an R4 client...you can however open an R5 ODS db with an R4 client if it is located on a Server...  :-)
(Just to keep it simple...)
