When I try and view my database on the web.  I am getting HTTP 404 Not Found error.  I have a navigator created.  When I log in to the database from the web, what tells it  to show a navigator?  The launch in properties in pointing to Use notes launch option.  I have others that are set the same that work.  Could someone please help me understand what needs to be in place to view on the web.

I set the Launch to MainFramesetWeb and I can log in to the database.  But it is showing my outline from the frameset and showing a navigator beside the views, so from left to right I have my embedded outline views then my navigator views then the view it self.  How do I get rid of the navagator?

Something is trying to load that is not compatible with the web client.  For example, there may be code trying to execute that only works in the Notes Client.  the trick is finding the offending design element or code.

What exactly are the Notes launch settings?

Ok, let me see if I understand:

1.  You have a database that launches a frameset.
2.  You are using the same frameset for the Notes and Web clients.
3.  The frameset loads properly in the Notes client but not in the Web client.

Questions:

How many frames are in the frameset (I think 3)?
Are you actually using a Navigator design element?  Your use of the word "view" above is a little misleading.  A view in Notes is a design element.  The terms "embedded outline views" and "navigator views" are confusing me.
What exactly is contained in each frame (ie: frame1 = page with an embedded outline, frame2 = view).  The order is not important.

the web frameset has 2 frames.

Frame 1 = Name = NotesNavigator ( Named Element
                                                         type = Page
                                                         value = outline which has the embedded outline
Frame 2 = Name = NotesView (Named Element
                                                  type = View
                                                  Value = All Documents

When I view the database on the web, I see

Frame 1 - it looks and works ok
Frame 2 - looks like it appended something to the left side of it.  It was a Navigator named OverAll, but I deleted the Navigator from the database, so now there is a empty space where the Navigator was.

Ok, I think you may have a hidden frame in your frameset.  

Here's how to find it.

1.  Make sure the properties window is open before you start (Edit - Properties).
2.  Open the web frameset but don't click on anything yet.
3.  Examine the frame properties and notice which frame is highlighted in the frameset (don't click any mouse buttons yet or you'll have to close the frameset and start again).
4.  If eveything looks as expected, press the Tab key on your keyboard once.  The focus will move to the next frame in the frameset (whether it is hidden or not).
5.  Continue tabbing through the frames until you find the hidden one.   Once you find it, you can delete it by clicking the "Delete Frame" action button.
6.  If you've examined all frames and end up on the first one again, then there are no hidden frames, and I am wrong.

Good luck.

There was a hidden frame, but that did not fix the problem.

When I open my database on the web - I see three buttons at the top of the page.

Next Set Of Docs              Prev. Set Of Docs          Expand View

Where are these buttons coming from?

I found a form called $$ViewTemplateDefault and that is there the Navigator was coming from.  I made a back up and deleted it.  Now I don't see any views on the web

Frame 1 = Still with the embedded outline and working
Frame 2 = is now blank and no views show up

What is the setting for Frame 2.  Is it computed, a url or a View design element?
Also, can you open the view from a URL?  Ie: http://Host/Database/View

I have now gone back to a basic web view.  I am not trying to use any framesets in my web view.  The database is set to use Notes Options when launching.  I have a navigator created.  When I login I get the HTTP 404 - file not found.  I really need to get this working so I am increasing the points
