Undocumented Registry Keys for Quickr Connector

The officially documented policy settings of the connector can be found here:

http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lqwiki.nsf/dx/Managing_connector_policies_qc85

Below you will find some additional registry keys which are not officially documented.

Caution: These settings have been created for specific customer requirements. Use these settings at your own risk. They may not work 100% correctly for your scenario and may also change in future.

You should also use the most current version of the connector as older versions may not work. The most current version can also be a version which is still not publicly available!


Location of the system-wide settings of the connector registry keys:

Windows 32-Bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\Lotus Quickr

Windows 64-Bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\Lotus Quickr

The user-specific settings are the same for both 32-bit and 64-bit and are located in:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\IBM\Lotus Quickr


All users will have the checkbox to "Apply properties to all documents" checked by default.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\Lotus Quickr\Desktop Integration\Monitor]
