NOTE: Prior to running the NICE tool consider backing up your Data files. (Notes/data directory )
You can rename "data" folder to "data_old" to backup your data folder

1. Close the Notes Client
2. locate and extract the file
3. double click nice.exe
- choose the Notes Client that you are using
- optionally check "Remove all program files" and "Remove all data files"
4.Once it is done, rerun the nice.exe
- check the "Wipe mode"
- click "Remove" button
5. When the wipe mode is done you can proceed on installing the Notes Client

Scripted Use:
The tool can be run "silently" (e.g. by script) and can be passed options for its uninstall.

List of all possible Nice tool options:
