IBM Lotus Knows how to screw up your day at the office – .provisioning_rc not found

Today I totally wasted my whole day trying to get Lotus Notes re-installed after it suddenly ‘died’ yesterday. The program did not want to start in standard mode, Designer and Adminstrator client ran OK.

During installation I receive the error message ‘.provisioning_rc not found… blabla’ and the installation quits. Cleaning any reference in the registry and files on the system just won’t help.

So a big ‘FU’ to IBM Lotus for destroying my day at the office. What a crappy software that does not allow to be re-installed! I wonder how many iPods Apple would still sell if you could not re-install iTunes.

Ps any help is welcome, allthough it will do little good right now due to travelling.
