Be Twice As Productive With Notes

Are you sick of waiting for Notes to respond ? Use two Notes clients on your workstation ! You maybe know that

you can install two different Notes versions (for example R4 and R5) on your windows workstation. Just by keeping the Notes.ini files separate by creating a short cut like : c:\notes\notes.exe =c:\path\notesr4.ini and a short cut like "c:\notesr5\notes.exe =c:\path\notesr5.ini You can take this technic a step further to run two Notes applications of 1 installation simultaneously by using the NLNOTES.exe file in your notes program directory. 1. Create a new data directory (example: c:\notes\data2) with a copy of your user.id and names.nsf 2. Create two separate Notes.ini files (notes.ini and notes2.ini) 3. Specify in the notes2.ini your second data directory 4. Adjust you existing Notes shortcut like c:\notes\notes.exe =c:\path\notes.ini 5. Now the trivial part: Create a shortcut like c:\notes\nlnotes.exe =c:\path\notes2.ini Start the first short cut, minimize the window and click the second short cut. You now run two Notes applications simultaneously !
