Error using Microsoft Transport Suite

I am having a problem creating a new Directory Connector using the Exchange Transport.

We have the Microsoft Exchange Transporter Suite installed on a CAS server and we are trying to set up the transporter suite. One of the first steps in that set-up process is to create a new domino connector.

We enabled detailed logging within the Exchange Transport tool and the error details show below is what appears when we try to create a new domino connector.

We already have Notes 8 installed on the box, so I don't understand why the line "Microsoft.Exchange.Transporter.Provider.Domino.NsfDataReaderException: Notes client is not installed !" would appear.

Unhandled Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> Microsoft.Exchange.Transporter.Provider.Domino.NsfDataReaderException: Notes client is not installed !
   at Microsoft.Exchange.Transporter.Provider.Domino.NotesDataAccess.GetNotesClientPath()
   at Microsoft.Exchange.Transporter.Provider.Domino.NotesDataAccess.AddNotesClientToPath()
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---

   at Microsoft.Exchange.Transporter.DominoConnector.Configuration.NotesDataAccess.AddNotesClientToPath()
   at AddNotesClientToPath()
   at _mainCRTStartup()

We also made sure that the path to nlnotes.exe is present in the path variable section of Windows.

We were able to successfully create a new “Free/Busy Connector” so I don’t understand why we keep getting an error when trying to create a new-dominodirectoryconnector.

Any help resolving this error would be greatly appreciated.

Did you install Notes or did you also set it up, so that a user can log in?

Notes is installed and the admin user with all appropriate permissions has already been added. Our consultants are stumpped.

Is the notes.exe file reachable by the Path environment variable?

path environment variable is set and the nlnotes.exe file is in there. that's why this is such a problem for us. its not clear what the problem is at this point.

The problem ended up being much more complex than origionally described. I do not have time to provide the depth and detail of the problem or solution.

Thanks for making the effort to reply.
