1. Download the Seascape ZIP package and extract the NSF file from the package to your Notes Data directory (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Notes\Data).

Important: The Seascape database will not function properly if the NSF file is opened directly from the ZIP file, but the NSF file must be extracted to the Data directory first.

Important notes:
  • In order for the Seascape users to be able to use the product correctly they will need to be assigned a Designer role in SWING Seascape database (or a higher role).
  • The NSF file must be extracted from the ZIP package and save in the Data directory according to instructions above. Opening the NSF directly from the ZIP package will result cause errors in product operation.
