APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • If the server component is not selected for installation, eg.
    for a Client or Explorer only installation, the install fails
    when the file "haregtyp.exe" cannot be located. Error AMQ4739
    is reported and the install ends without rollback.
    

Local fix

  • none - Install server and Explorer, then uninstall server.
    

Problem summary

  • The problem occurs because of a missing dependency declaration
    in the "IBM WebSphere MQ.msi" install package.
    
    The dependency can be added locally using the Orca utility
    available from Microsoft: Using Orca open the MQ MSI file "IBM
    WebSphere MQ.msi" goto the "InstallExecuteSequence" table,
    find the entry "iwiRegisterMSCSResouces" and edit the
    value "AMQREMOVE <>1" to read "AMQREMOVE <> 1 and &Server =
    3", then save the MSI and re-run the install.
    
    An interim fix, providing the msi file corrected in this way
    is available from IBM Support.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • The problem will be fixed in the next release of WebSphere MQ
    that provides a new installation package. The fix cannot be
    provided in a Fix Pack as the problem exists in the original
    installation package.
