Lotus Notes 8.0.1 – How to find the right download file

Today we hosted our anual “Lotusphere Comes To Berlin” event. It was a big success, more attendees than last year, good speakers, interesting discussions – and a broadband internet connection for downloading todays release of Lotus Notes 8.0.1 which was announced yesterday. Just in time for our event.

So I downloaded the 420 MB package “C19U1EN”, the Lotus Notes 8.0.1 Win32 client. Tried to install it. Failed.

“The upgrade you are attempting is not supported.”

I obviously tried to install Lotus Notes Client 8.0.1 only, and this is not supported if you have Client, Admin and Designer 8 preinstalled. I don´t understand why I can not upgrade this way, but anyway: So I looked for the “All Clients” package in the software download section at IBM. But there is no “All Clients” download.

Solution: Download another 462 MB “IBM Lotus Domino Designer 8.0.1 for Windows XP and Vista English (C19U0EN)”. It contains NOT only the Designer – even if it is labeled this way. This file contains Lotus Notes and Admin client. Who labels this stuff at IBM?
