Notes 7.x Smart Upgrade Changes

I am now starting our Notes 7.0.1 upgrades. There was an option in the Smart Upgrade kit that I did not have selected properly. This is new for the Domino 7.0 Smart Upgrade template.

In the kit there is now a yes/no field titled "Release 6.5.4/6.0.5 or previous?" If the source Notes version is in the 6.x range, this must be "Yes." Likewise, if the source Notes version is in the 7.x range this must be "No."

On top of this, if the source version is 7.x, you must also choose the "Install Type" of "Notes client only" or "All Client (Notes client, Admin client, Designer)".

Another update: It also appears that the issue with the client configuration wizard prompt for multi-user installs may be technically resolved. It appears that going from 6.x to 7.0.1 will work. Upgrading from 6.x to 7.0 gives the configuration wizard prompt. Then, subsequent upgrades from 7.0 to 7.0.1 will cause the prompt as well.

The issue is with a registry key that 7.0 doesn't delete. From my understanding, the key will be properly deleted going from 6.5.x to 7.0.1, but if you had upgraded from 6.5.x to 7.0 and later upgrade to 7.0.1 the key will still not be deleted.
