The Lotus Notes client displays the splash screen and accepts the username/password and then does not complete loading. Progress bar keeps looping around with the message "Loading.. Please wait" displayed. This is probably due to a plugin issue. It can be fixed by following the steps below:
Run command prompt
Change directory to Lotus Notes client program folder (C:Program FileIBMLotusNotes by default)
Enter "notes.exe -RPARAMS -resetconfig -clean"
Lotus Notes client should now start properly
This should clean the workspace, plugins and then clear out the cache.
Please note that the command should only be run once or it will slow the Notes client start if run every time.
Thanks to Simon O'Doherty for pointing this out on a blog and Google for finding it.

Lotus Notes client shuts down when started
Thu, Oct 3rd 2013 11:12p Paul Farris I have had an issue with one of our Lotus Notes clients (v8.5.x) recently. When starting the client it allowed the user to enter their credentials and instead of displaying the homepage it would immediately shutdown and prompt to replicate on shutdown. Repeatedly restarting the client resulted in the same behaviour.
Renaming the Workspace folder (under the Data folder) fixed this issue. [read] Keywords: lotus
