APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The silent installation gets interrupted with a Security Warning
    pop-up asking "Do you want to run this file?".  The file
    referenced is amqisupport.exe. The install will hang at this
    point until "Run" or "Cancel" is selected in the pop-up. This

    'MQ_Install_Source\windows\msi\x64\' to
