SnTT: How to tell if the Notes client is Standard or Basic

A lot of people have been asking on the forums lately how to tell whether the Notes client is running in Basic or Standard configuration. You can use @IsEmbeddedInsideWCT or NotesUIWorkspace.IsEmbeddedInsideWCT. The Workplace Client the help refers to morphed into Lotus Expeditor, which is the framework for the Notes 8 Standard client.


  1. To lazy to test; does this even returns a reliable value when you are running the standard client in basic mode?

  2. Yes, I ran 8.5.1 and 8.0.2 in Basic mode and it returned False.
