SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to install the Microsoft Exchange Application Converter for Lotus Notes (Mxsetup.exe), the following error message may be displayed:

The directory containing the Lotus Notes program files could not be identified. For the Application Converter to function properly, the Notes program directory should be added to your system's PATH.

CAUSE

The Lotus Notes client program folder is not in the system path.

    ;c:\notes
