While it's often more convenient for users to install our software with the Ytria EZ Suite database (and even if you only purchase one tool you'll be able to use the free versions of all the others), we do provide individual product installers for those who prefer smaller downloads.

  • Download: To begin your download, click on a product download link and save it (a .zip file) to your computer. (All Ytria's software installer files are available on the download page of our website).
  • Unzip: Unzip the [productname].zip file you just downloaded, which will unzip the [productname].nsf file to a folder of your choice. (It's strongly recommended that you use your local Notes Data directory).
  • Open database: In your Notes client open the [productname].nsf database. In the About screen that appears, click the Install button and follow the onscreen instructions to install your Ytria software.

Read the agreement and choose I agree... then click the OK button.

When installation is complete click the OK button.

  • Run the software from the toolbar buttons. Refresh the toolbar if it does not appear. If necessary, create the toolbar manually (see: "Installing Icons/Toolbar" if you need help)

Buttons look like this: 


  • Register: Register your software and enter the license key that we will send to you by email (valid email address required during registration, otherwise you will not receive your free key!)

Additional Installation Tips

*It is more convenient to start with a "fresh" Notes client. After opening your Notes client, (without doing anything else) proceed directly to the [productname].nsf database, open it, and then click the "Begin Installation" button. The reason is that if you have been using any Ytria products during a session, certain .dll files are loaded into memory which cannot be written over during an installation. By not using any tools during a session, you can install all our products one after another, and then close Notes just once for the installation settings to take effect.

SmartIcon/Toolbar Tips

Lotus Notes 5 clients and lower: Close & open Notes to make your new SmartIcon available in the Universal toolbar.
Lotus Notes 6.x and higher clients: A Ytria toolbar will be created, to make it visible go to: File > Preferences > Toolbar preferences > Toolbars Tab and select the Ytria toolbar.

The Install button

Normally, most users should just need to click the Install button to install Ytria products.

Sign this database with your current ID button

If the need ever arises you can use the "Sign this database with your current ID" button to sign the database with your ID (or a general authorized ID, if installation database is on a server) to avoid all the security alerts (i.e. ECL and cross certification alerts).

Force-reinstall of all files

Normally you will not need to use this option, and the installation process will update what needs to be updated, usually the .exe file. Selecting this option will replace any existing files with ones provided by the installation database, (even if the installing files are out of date). Keep in mind that the install process must have free access to the ndbytria.dll and scanezmulti.dll (if they are already loaded into memory), then the process cannot access the files, this can happen if you clicked a Ytria SmartIcon, or toolbar, or using the multi-selection option in scanEZ.


After installation, you can delete the .nsf files for all Ytria software except for signEZ and designPropEZ. The signEZ database is used to keep signatures and logs and the designPropEZ database is used for updating design element properties across multiple databases. If these tools were installed using the EZ Suite Installer the YtriaEZsuite.nsf file serves as the database for both designPropEZ and signEZ and thus should not be deleted if you'd like to use those tools. For all other tools you can delete their respective .nsf files after they have been properly installed (if you wish).
