Detecting if user has configured Lotus Notes

I am working on an application that imports contacts from Lotus Notes. However, this doesn't work unless the user has configured their Notes client. I want to prevent users from initiating a contact import if they have not yet configured Notes.

I am using the Domino COM Toolkit and C#.

Is there a property on the NotesSession object that can be used without calling Initialize first? Initialize requires the user's Notes password which would not yet exist if the user has not yet configured their Notes installation.

Or is there another way to do this?

Your code could check the contents of notes.ini. There are dozens of default settings that only get added after the client has been setup.
