Error description

  • When installing WebSphere MQ Fix Pack 8.0.0.4 in non-English
    language, the characters in the dialogs are corrupted.
    The installation is successful if the corrupted characters are
    ignored and the correct button presses are made.
    

Local fix

  • The installation can be continued by ignoring the corrupted
    characters, or alternatively, by installing the Fix Pack in
    English
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users wishing to install fix pack 8.0.0.4 who wish to
    install via non-English dialog text.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Due to a packaging error during the fixpack release cycle for
    8.0.0.4, the native language resource files were provided in an
    invalid format for non-English languages. Because of this error,
    corrupted characters may appear in dialog boxes for the Windows
    installation of the fix pack files.
    
    The application of the fix pack, and subsequent invocation of
    the MQ product, will still work as expected in the native
    language despite the corrupted characters appearing in the
    installation dialogs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ fix pack packaging process has been amended to
    address this error for future fix pack releases
