To reset the user workstation ECL with the Administration ECL the notes.net forum suggests to use the @RefreshECL formula or the Session.SetEnvironmentVar("ECLSetup","1",True) method from LotusScript. Both Methods are for use with a button in a E-Mail Message.
Unfortunately they require a restart of Lotus Notes to take effect (at restart Lotus Notes read the notes.ini settings!)
I have written this script in vbscript:it execute with Login Script (Novell or Windows), search in the folder of drive c: for notes.ini, copy this file to notes.old for backup and create new copy of notes.ini with ECLSetup variables set to 1.
Every Time user login to the network and after open Lotus Notes trasparently refresh the local ECL.
