I'm running Notes v5 on my laptop, not conected to a server, to create some specialised technical (non-IT)databases. These databases might run on servers when sold, or on local PCs, depending on whether the client already uses Notes or not. I'm not very familiar with Domino. This question is part of my task to enable me to give people time-limited trials of the databases and to prevent people from passing them on to others.
Previously I've asked questions around this and received some good help - see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Email/Lotus_Notes/Q_20519496.html
and I've implemented some of the ideas.
Scott suggested I create time-limited user IDs. I gather from the previous replies I can create an ID file for a customer or trier of the database and then encrypt the file for that ID. I then send the database and the new ID file to the person. They swap to the ID supplied and this will allow the database to work. This isn't exactly bomb-proof but would put off most Notes users from passing it on, I guess. However I can't find a way to do this.
In the database Domino Setup (setup.nsf) I find a document with my computer's name on it. If I open the document I find a form with 3 buttons. If I click the Register users button, it asks me for my Certifier ID which I type in. However it brings the messagebox "You cannot add a directory to your workspace". Then I get another box saying "The template "userreg.ntf" cannot be found locally. Userreg.ntf is required for registering people onto Notes". Sure enough, my computer does not contain this file.
If I click "Launch Domino server" from that form, it says "Unable to locate program.
Can anyone lead me by the hand to setting up new IDs to do what I want?
