how often called a user and said he has the "An error was encountered while opening a window." error message on his screen? You know that a reboot would fix this problem (a re-login will work also sometimes)...
So my idea is to change this error message... something which is usefull :-). Like... try to reboot your workstation or something else...
And yes, I know that i can overwrite this error message via:
but this is a workaround... and no solution for this stupid error message ;-)

You do need to reboot. You could call from the DOS-command line "NDS -kill" or use "KillNotes"

Why doesn't notes offer this? Something like "Notes detected an instance of Notes: did Notes crash? <kill old notes instance> <close this window>"

You can customize pretty much any error message now. There is a lookup DB...forgetting the name currently, but you open it and you'll see each error code and the corresponding text. Just change it to whatever you'd like.

"If you see this box, then re-start Notes to solve the error generated. If still having problems, re-start Notes and try again. Otherwise, call the Help Desk. {Error code: #<n>} "
