Using Admin and Designer client on your server without installing

Ever need a Administrator or Designer client on a Domino R5 Server machine?

Ever need a Administrator or Designer client on a Domino R5 Server machine?

Instead of installing the clients all you need to do is copy the Admin.exe and Designer.exe from an already installed R5 client elsewhere and paste them into any directory you like on the server machine (make sure the domino path is on the system's PATH) and then create shortcuts to the exe files in a more convient location.

To launch the Notes client, you can launch the already existing notes.exe or nlnotes.exe in your server's install folder i.e. c:lotusdomino
