lotus notes for windows 98


Is it really possible for Lotus notes 7 to run on windows 98 SE?

I've tried running Notes 6.5, then upgrade but wasn't able to run the program afterwards..
I've also tried reinstalling it, then cleaning out the registry and install fresh new Notes7.0.2, but that didn't work either.

Web Access is not an option.. We need to run notes client..

Hope there is a way to run Notes 7 on win98?

Ah, one "detail" iI forgot: I know that Notes R7.0.1 runs on Win98SE. If you can do without the additional stuff that's in R7.0.2, try to downgrade.
None that I know of. By the way, please refer to the minimum system requirements of Lotus Notes 7


*minimum required OS
Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
I agree.
Win98 SE has not been in support for a few years, so you are going to have to stay with R 6.5, or upgrade your OS to at least win 2K.

It is about time.....

I hope this helps !

Did you try to install it on a Win98SE system? AFAIK, basic Notes runs without a problem. I don't know if all add-ons run, like DECS etc. You know where the proof of the pudding is... ;-))
Hi lordfd,

Hope your issue has been resolved. Please revert if you still encounter issues with lotus notes on win 98

thank you for all your suggestion.. I will try install again from scratch the following suggested tips:
1. install R6.5 on win98 without DECS and other stuff
2. install R7.0.1 on win98 without other stuff

After my simulations, i will post on the result..

Cheeers Guys!
