Fix for Noteshound breaking Notes 8.02 when installed

I installed Noteshound 7.1.0 on my machine yesterday with Notes 8.0.2. when I went to restart Notes it wouldn’t work. Worse still a standard  un-install and re-install didn’t work either so I had to go and delete the folders manually – all in all I lost a couple of hours of work time.

I put in a support request to Noteshound and Ken Haggmann came back very quickly this morning. After some troubleshooting he deduced that the “Install right-click option” was causing the problem. This adds the following line to the notes.ini file

AddInMenus=nhAddin.dll

Once this line is removed Notes can be restarted although the Noteshound right click option will not be available.

The right-click option is installed by default

It does make you think that with so much change going on with the Notes clients at the moment that it must be a challenging time for ISVs who are integrating deeply into the Notes client as opposed to using standard Notes functionality
