Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of WebSphere Application Server
    Version 7 for whom either the Windows reg.exe command is
    restricted (anyone who must comply with Federal Desktop Core
    Computing policy) or unavailable (users of Windows 2000
    Professional).
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    As part of the application server startup on Windows, the
    WebSphere MQ Resource Adapter (shipped as part of WebSphere
    Application Server Version 7) runs the reg.exe command to find
    out which version of WebSphere MQ is installed. An IOException
    was thrown when this check was made by users for whom the
    reg.exe command was restricted or unavailable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The check performed by reg.exe is purely informational, so it
    is not necessary to throw an exception if this cannot be done.
    
    The IOException is no longer thrown.
