Enable File > Application > Install in Notes 8

Guess this is widely published on the web but since I was searching for this like mad today I have to write it down for the next time I need it.

In order to enable the Eclipse update manager UI in Lotus Notes:

  1. Close you Lotus Notes client
  2. Browse to the plugin_customization.ini in the notes application folder\framework\rcp
  3. Add com.ibm.notes.branding/enable.update.ui=true
  4. Save and close file and restart Lotus Notes

You can now find the Eclipse update manager under File > Application > Application Management.

  1. sorry.
    there is a Lotus notes 8.5 russian version + fix pack
    add com.ibm.notes.branding/enable.update.ui=true
    but i don`t see file – application – install 🙁
    what is wrong ?

  2. Guess my Russian skills are a bit to ancient to be able to give you a direct answer to this.
    I have updated the post with a screen shot of the English client. Assuming that the menus are solely translated and not reworked completely in other localisations, it might give you the hint required.
