Program installation

Run pgpnotes-setup.exe. This will install all the necessary components to your system. It will also install PGPNotes Control that implements the passphrase caching feature in PGPNotes.

Without PGPNotes Control, you will be prompt to enter your PGP passphrase everytime you encrypt or decrypt a message using PGPNotes. PGPNotes Control will cache the passphrase in memory for some minutes of inactivity before prompting you for the passphrase again.

Check that your TEMP environment variable is set properly. To do this, run MSDOS Prompt and type "set" at the command line. In the default Windows configuration, this variable is set to C:\WINDOWS\TEMP (for older versions of Windows) or C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Local Settings\Temp.

It is important to leave the TEMP directory alone during PGPNotes encryption/decryption, because this directory is used for storing temporary files. For example, do not try to decrypt/detach files to this directory, as it may overwrite temporary files required for proper operation of PGPNotes.

If you have installed PGPNotes for GnuPG, you will need to tell PGPNotes where GnuPG is installed. This is done by selecting Options... from PGPNotes Control and entering the full path in GnuPG executable location.

Before you can start using PGPNotes, you will also need to configure Lotus Notes. Depending on which version of Lotus Notes you use, choose one of the following for more information:
