incorrect LN version while upgrading 5.0.11 to 5.0.12

When I try to upgrade LN client R5.0.11 to R5.0.12 using incremental installer (5.0.11->5.0.12)
I get message "Installer found incorrect version Release 5.0.11 |July 24,2002 of Notes in C:\LOTUS\NOTES. Please check..correct directory.., upgrade.log... bla bla bla"

What could be wrong with my Notes?
Maybe I have incorrect NSTRINGS.DLL file? (can't see version but size is 561206 bytes)

Thanks in advance!

The most common mistake if you installed options in a version prior to 5.0.11, then you upgraded to 5.0.11 without upgrading all the same options.

Easiest solution is to wipe your notes executable directory (leave your notes.ini and all your data directories) and install the new version as a whole.

It seems that there is no other way than try to download full version LN 5.0.12.
Or reinstall 5.0.11 using your suggestion and then upgrade to 5.0.12.
