I am looking for a freewareo or shareware software that is capable of reading a lotus notes database file, on a computer that don`t have (and won`t have) lotus notes installed.

The only thing I have found is this program:
http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-14480-100-884087.html?tag=st.dl.10001-103-1.lst-7-12.884087

It contains activex controls you can use to write your own program to access R4.x databases.

Other than that I can't think of any programs that let you do this...
why do you want to access a database file without notes being on the machine?

thanks for the comment,

i`ll try the program and check if it will work for me. I want to access the database because i've quit my job where I had a notes e-mail client (now i have outlook), but i want to be able to read my old messages. I've burned a CD with my old databases

Thanks!

hmm, that may be hard to do...I've never found anything that reads notes files without notes being installed.  Even clients that let you open your mail in outlook require notes files to be on the machine first.  I would suggest trying to see if you can find a copy of Notes somewhere (and you'll need your .id file too...I hope you burned that on cd too or you're in real trouble!) and install it.
