Does anybody use the Lotus Notes Modemfiles which are installed with Lotus Notes? I doesn´t know a company who use them... BUT they are installed via default.
To give the user a cleaner installation (and eleminate questions what are modemfiles) I would like to have this files disabled in the next client installer. So if needed they can be selected and installed.
What do you think?

I also wish that the installer would remember the previous installer-settings, so I don't risk upgrading with different settings

ha ha ha.

Yes. I can't believe this wasn't posted earlier.

I'd also like to see "RIGHT DOUBLE CLICK CLOSES WINDOWS" a default option...though I know it won't work in java views.

I set that on hundreds of desktops over the years until we could implement Domino policies.

From the Admin Help:

Support for direct dialup modem (X.PC) connections is available only in releases of Domino earlier than release 8.5. You may continue to use Domino Administrator 8.5 to configure and maintain direct dialup modem support, but only on servers running pre-8.5 releases.

Should be solved. I haven't seen the modem files in a 8.5 client setup recently.
