APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • DB2 shortcuts like DB2 Command Window may not appear post
    installation if the Microsoft security patch KB3126593
    (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/kb/3126593) has been
    applied.
    
    If there are multiple DB2 copies on the system, installing a new
    DB2 copy and making the new one the default copy will also cause
    the shortcuts from the previously installed DB2 default copy to
    disappear.
    

Local fix

    click->Change

    (a) You may receive "A general error occurred. The return
