Lotus Notes error: “CWPCA8522E: Application did not get installed…”

Problem :
When you open mailbox client on Lotus Notes Standard Edition 8.5.1 with FP5 installed, randomly will raise an error “CWPCA8522E Application did not get installed”

Cause :
According to https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21444533, commonly there are multiple XML files defined in the Composite Application portion of the application referenced in the error message. In my experience when you installed Lotus Notes Standard 8.5.1 Fix Patch 5 randomly caused this error.

Solution:
To fix, delete the following folders under the Data folder:

..\Notes\Data\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\com.ibm.portal.app

..\Notes\Data\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\com.ibm.rcp.portal.app

Restart the Notes client.
Thanks to Stephan Bovet for his post on the 8.5 forum for this solution.

  1. You dont know how much you helped me.
    Here in the company have more than 100 computers with Lotus Notes.
    And always had to uninstall and install again.
    You saved my time 🙂 .
    Thanks.

  2. somehow the folder will be re-generated. some of our users experienced this. we have to delete the folder every time the error re-occured. does anybody knows if there is any permanent solution on this?
