Lotus Notes 7 crashes with error Microsoft Visual C++13.01.2006 15:04
I had some of these ugly crashes which do not even invoke NSD. You can just click OK and have to kill ntaskldr.exe manually.
This problem is due to the fact that one file is being installed into the wrong directory. You can move the file dt_socket.dll from NOTESPROGDIR\jvm\bin to NOTESPROGDIR. That fixed the problem for me where the Notes Client was crashing in a view where an image resource for a view action was missing.

New 6.5.5 Lotus Notes/Domino notes.ini parameters05.01.2006 20:09
These notes.ini parameters are new with Lotus Notes/Domino 6.5.5.
New 7.0.1 Lotus Notes / Domino notes.ini parameters05.01.2006 17:15
The Notes.ini variable "NOLOCALSHARINGFAILOVER=1" can be used to prevent automatic failover when opening a local database that is already open by another user. This restores the R5 behavior when two users attempt to open the same local database.
SPR# PJON6CGQSS - Router non-delivery messages were not transladed with the language pack installed. This fix provides a workaround for customers who wish for certain English failure reasons returned in NDRs by the Router to be translated. These English strings currently are visible in the Subject field in the Inbox view. This fix copies 11 untranslated error messages from the router to strings. It also provides a notes.ini, RouterLanguageVisibleNDRStatus=1, which when enabled will generate these new error codes for NDRs. This does not in itself give a translated error. Translation of these new errors on the various language packs is required. The customer must then make a configuration change, to backup the original strings resource, and copy (not rename) the desired language pack version of strings_xx on top of strings. Note that this will also cause some server console messages to be in that language.
SPR# PRUN658HGV - Fixed some memory leaks associated with running applets in Notes. Also enabled redirecting heap dump output (on the client only) to a file via the following Notes.ini variables:
CHECK_FOR_JAVA_HEAPDUMPS - if non-zero, checks for heapdumps, and deals with writing its output to a file. If zero works as it used to with all output going to the Notes debug console.
HEAP_DUMP_FILE_NAME - if CHECK_FOR_JAVA_HEAPDUMPS is set, this specifies the file the output should be written to. If not specified, the default is c:\tmp\heapdump%d.txt. If %d appears in the name, then the code replaces the %d with a number and checks to see if a file with that name/number exists. If it does, it increments the number and tries again until a new file is created. If %d does not appear, then the file is opened and appended to each time.
*Please note: In V7, the Notes.ini variables above will become obsolete when we upgrade to a JVM that supports saving the HeapDump output properly.
SPR# PCHE6DZEZ8 - In some situations, the DXL Exporter could give the error "Invalid Encoded Data - Attachment may be corrupted" due to the abnormal case of two attachments with the same name within a note. Provided a workaround to this problem as follows. If the notes.ini variable DXL_EXPORT_RECOVERY=1 is used, the second and subsequent attachments with the same name within a note will be emitted as itemdata. The first attachment with that name will be emitted in its normal format, object file filedata.
Please note: this Notes.ini variable is only needed in version 6.x. In 7.x, the fix works without the need for the Notes.ini variable.
