Hi All,

I am trying to customize Lotus Notes 8.5.1 post configurations,

1. Edit Locations: Only Offline And OnLine options should be available.
2. Set mail as a home page.
3. Use Large Icons
4. Replication: View Advance Menus
5. Contacts: In preferences- Enable- Sync Contact
6. Add Workspace Icon in Lotus Notes Quick Launch (Side Bar-Dock List)
7. New Message: Display
Enable (BCC and Additional mail option)
8. Preferences: Web Browser default
9. Enable- Dock the open List
10. Sametime should take the user name and server name by default

Are there any tools which captures the customization into a transform or an answer file?
Just like Adobe Customization wizard which creates a transform file.
Or If there is any other work around which can help me.
Please advice.

Here are my Analysis :
Configurations are reflecting in Data Directory Files (XML,INI,NSF etc) not in registries.

1. Monitoring Files (Picture Taker) shows, that the Notes.INI is modified.
2. Just replacing the Notes.ini with a configured one doesn’t work.
3. Copying the Data\Wokspace folder and a Data\NOTES.INI files from a configured lotus Notes to freshly installed(Not configured) Lotus Notes Data Directory, fixes the issue. (Only for same user fails fo other user)
Notes.INI has user specific entries so I copiedp only the required properties, However the Workspace folder has lot of sub folders and files(XML,Properties,.PREFS,.MAPs etc).

Thanks a lot in advance.
