Teamstudio client tools are no longer supported on Notes versions below 8.5. This information is provided to help with legacy installations and we will provide help as far as possible, but the tools are not tested or supported on Notes 8.0.x or below.


You install the client tools on any Notes client that has access to the server, by opening the client installation database and following the on-screen instructions.

  1. From the Teamstudio website, download Install.nsf to your computer.
  2. From a Notes client, optionally click File > Database > New Copy to copy install.nsf onto a Domino server that is accessible to the users who need to install the product.
    To install for a single client, copy the Install database to the local Notes data directory.


    Because Teamstudio client-based tools are licensed per user (developer), be sure that, for each tool you install, you have purchased a license for each user.

  3. From a client workstation, open the installation database.
    You see the Teamstudio for Notes Installation Database window.
  4. Click Next to continue.
    You see the license agreement.
  5. Read the license agreement carefully. If you accept the terms of the agreement, click OK to continue.
    You see the following window:
  6. Check the values of the Executable Directory and the Data Directory are correct.


    If these fields are not correct, Notes may not be installed properly, or you may have more than one version of notes.ini on your path.

    Your copy of notes.exe must be located in the directory listed in the Executable Directory field for the Teamstudio tools to run.

    Even if your PC has a c:\notes directory, you must confirm the location of your copy of notes.exe.

    If you run Notes from a networked file server, you need write access to the drive/directory on which Notes is installed or you system administrator should install Teamstudio software for you.

  7. Select the check boxes for the tools you want to install.
    As you select each check box, you see one or more collapsed sections with installation options for each product.
  8. Click the twisty to expand a section. The following table describes the Installation check boxes:
