Based upon the comments of many people doing upgrades to 8.5.1 It seems like opportunity still exists for the install experience to be made a more positive one.  Amongst the areas I believe need improving:-
  1. Reduce the total time to do any given install
  2. Make an install over the top of an existing install as reliable as unisntalling before doing the new install (negating the need for an uninstall)
  3. Reduce the number of environment settings that can cause the install to fail, or install with problems
  4. Provide something worthwhile on the screen while the install is running (e.g. description of new features).
  5. Provide an specific area in technical support for install issues that can be easily accessed and is always updated with the latest information.

Just the ability to install Notes 8.5.1 AND still be able to run designer would be nice.

What is the benefit of running the designer when installing a new version. How to deal with updates in the designer?

Also keep track of what sidebar items are installed, and if one causes trouble during the install, offer to disable or remote it.
