Script To Check If The Client Is R5

Got an R5 database that needs an R5 client? No problem ....

This simple script added in the PostOpen event of the Database Script will
check if the Notes client is R5, and alert any non-R5 clients that they cannot
properly access the application.
Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidatabase)
Set session = New NotesSession
Dim version As String
Dim extract As String

version = session.NotesVersion
extract = Left(version, 9)
If extract <> "Release 5" Then
Messagebox "Important: Sorry but you do not have an R5 client and will be
unable to properly access this application.", 0 + 64, "Sorry!"
End If

End Sub
