Problem : Starup error “The Notes2 executable launcher was unable to locate its companion launcher jar”
Since a couple of days I get the error message above when I start Notes 8.5 (also tried 8.5 FP1 and 8.5.1, same result). If I uninstall and install again, I can start Notes once, then the error returns. I don’t really know what the error message mean or where to look but I would appreciate all help I can get, thanks in advance.
Solution: Starup error “The Notes2 executable launcher was unable to locate its companion launcher jar”
I removed the compatability option for Run as Administrator. I then noticed that when double clicking the shortcut on the Desktop it was executing just fine. I then pinned the application to the Task Bar. I closed Lotus Notes and then launched it by clicking the pinned icon on the Task Bar. This is when I would get the error.
Upon further investigation the Target path for the pinned icon was “C:Program FilesIBMLotusNotesframeworkrcpeclipsepluginscom.ibm.rcp.base_22.214.171.124811140851win32x86notes2.exe” and the Target path for the shortcut on the Desktop was “C:Program FilesIBMLotusNotesnotes.exe”. I changed the Target path for the pinned icon to match that of the Desktop shortcut and now I am no longer receiving the error.
