Error Message:
Error opening Mail or Calendar after MS Windows crash.

The dialog says:
Open Application
CWPCA8515e Application failed to open: IBM Notes 9.0 Mail Calendar ToDo Applications

The config items in the Java workspace have corruption. This is not the Workspace tab in the Notes client.

- Close Notes client
- Open up Folders and navigate to the client data folder:
- - If you have the Designer client, then the first path is most likely. The second is more likely your path, otherwise.
c:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Notes\Data\workspace\
- - In either case, rename or delete the workspace sub folder.
- Start Notes.

The workspace folder contains config items and temp items for the Notes client when in "Standard" mode vs "Basic" mode. Standard mode is typically/normal. Deleting it will make the Notes client set up new defaults.

To fix, we need to clear the workspace folder. Most of these settings will default back from policies, but there will be a few preferences that won't be the same.
(e.g. workspace tab background picture, some font settings, etc. )
