The difference between notes.exe and nlnotes.exe...
I thought I knew the answer to this, but I was always a little fuzzy on it... From the KnowledgeBase...
What Is the Difference Between Notes.exe and Nlnotes.exe?
What is the difference in function between the two executable files, Notes.exe and Nlnotes.exe? Both of these files are located in the Notes program directory.
Notes.exe does the following three main things, then calls Nlnotes.exe:
- it displays the splash screen
- checks to see if Notes is already running (and aborts if so)
- loads Qnc.exe if you have it configured to do so.
So, if you load Nlnotes.exe or create a shortcut directly to Nlnotes.exe you don't have to wait for the splash screen. You can run multiple versions of Notes simultaneously, and avoid loading the debugger.
