If your Notes client 8.5.x client doesn't start

Lotus Notes 8 running in ParallelsImage by Bruce Elgort via Flickr

The first thing you want to check is if there is a conflict with already running old Notes clients.

You can use "killnotes" but even better you can use the built in tool nsd.exe and add the parameter -kill.

To kill the notesclient write path to notes program folder i.e

"c:\program files\IBM\Lotus\Notes\nsd.exe" -kill

try to restart your client if it still doesn't work, you need to do the procedure above again.
you also need to delete everything inside the workspace folder (don't delete the folder) that is located within the Notes\Data folder (a backup might be in order, just in case)

And try again to start the client this will take alot of time because the workspace folder is recreated
