When you install Domino on a Windows platform machine, the Domino program directory is not added to the server's path statement.
It would make it alot easier to run nsd.exe, and nserver -c commands (for batch files) if the program directory was already in the path already.
Of course, it doesn't take much to go and add it manually after installing Domino, but please give me a reason why it should not be added to the path automatically during the install?

I'm guessing here, but it's probably because of multiple partition installs. Which one would you be targeting then if there were multiple partitions?
2) David Killingsworth4000 (03 Jul 2008)
Understood, but don't you have to select "This is a partition install" during installation?
3) Jens-B. Augustiny636 (04 Jul 2008)
Basically you need notes.ini, not the program directory. And that one should not reside in the program directory for a server in the first place.

@Jens) What do you mean that notes.ini should not reside in the program directory? That is where it is installed by default, except on partitioned servers.

I don't understand why this is getting so many negative votes.

There are several other major commonly used windows applications that set a path statement during install of their product. PCAnywhere is an example.

@Vitor) Even with partitioned installs, the program directory is a single directory.

Example: c:\lotus\domino\ contains all the program files, where as e:\lotus\dominodata1\, e:\lotus\dominodata2\, e:\lotus\dominodata3\ might be all of your partition data directories.

I agree with you David.
