Adding or removing installed Notes® features within a release

Optionally add new features, or remove installed features, by rerunning the Notes® installation executable within the same release.

About this task

Within the same Notes® release, you can add features to or remove features from your current Notes® installation by re-running the Notes® installer. You can also customize the process using the install manifest. Use either the user interface or the silent command line install methods.

Note: This process does not apply to Linux; for Notes® on Linux, recreate the rpm or deb install kit to contain the desired features.
Note: For performing this task silently on the command line, see Performing a Notes® silent install or upgrade on Windows in the related information.


  1. For the graphical user interface method, start the Notes® installer.

    When you run the same-version Notes® installation executable as the Notes® version currently installed on your computer, the installer detects the existing installation and prompts you to Remove, Repair, or Modify.

  2. Enable the Modify option and click Next.
  3. Select the features to add or remove and then click Next.
    • Add/Install -- Any available feature that was not previously installed is shown unselected. You can select the features in order to install them.
    • Remove -- Any feature that was installed previously is shown selected. You can deselect these features in order to remove them.
  4. Optional: Optionally specify Notes® as your default Mail, Calendar, and Contacts programs and click Install.
  5. Respond to any prompts and click Finish when installation is complete.
