In trying to create a demo for a client, which I will not be at and is NOT a Lotus shop, I wanted the intended customer to be shown the demo fo the db by the partner/sales team which brought me in.
One problem, they don't have a notes client or know anything about it so how can i create a notes nsf db as a demo?
My only solution so far is to make it http enabled and hope its "good enough".
This is NOT good enough.
Why is there no way to wrap a db in a runtime like in almost any other application?
If someone has a better way out, let me know.
DOLS was mentioned and i will try it but not sure it really will do what I want.
EMail me or ST me or IM me or twitter me with inputs.

If it is just for client demo purposes, then Nomad (Notes client on a USB drive) is a decent solution.

I agree with Jeff - use Nomad.

take a laptop?

We used NOMAD and I explained how to make it work for the sales guy.
For all of you that demoted this I understand this need does not come up very often, but it would be nice to have such a thing on rare occasions.
Like why MUST I load notes just to use my journal.nsf? why can't it be a runtime file?

I agree in principle but disagree in practice. The idea of the stand alone 'executable' application infers little or no dependancy on so many Domino concepts like authentication, names fields with directory dependancies etc I've given this a Yes vote because I'm feeling idealistic.

lol @ Paul. You're obviously a 'doer'. You don't sit around contemplating things and just get things done :)

I like the idea. Though I bet it would be a ton of work for IBM. Microsoft Access has had a run time version for ever.

haha - thanks for that - it sounds like my horoscope. I'm currently trying to do QENOS - { Link } ;D

If they can't run Nomad, they wouldn't do well with a demo anyway. I miss lotus's old screencam product since it could create a demo that looked like the real product.
