Lotuis script/variable to detect client version

A4eIT asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-18

Does anyone have a script to detect a lotus client, then perform a simple action depending on the outcome.

Its basically for the situation where we have a mix of client version, 5.0.12, 6.5 and 6.51. Upgrading all users is not currently an option.

We are sending out mails with links to the helpfile, obviously this helpfile differs from client to client and also a single helpfile is not applicable to all client.

Basically, I need a button that effectively says,

Get notes client version,
If client = 5.0.12 then open this db link,
if client = 6.5 then open this one,
if client = 6.5.1 then open this link.

Will add lots of extra points if this is a long job.

Thanks in advance.
