Local fix

  • As the MQXR directory is not supposed to be present in a client
    only installation, either try removing the MQXR directory or
    install the client to a different location.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users installing or upgrading to one of the following MQ Client
    versions:
    
     8.0.0.12, 8.0.0.13
     9.0.0.6, 9.0.0.7, 9.0.0.8
     9.1.0.2, 9.1.0.3, 9.1.0.4
    
    This issue does not affect installation of the client libraries
    using the full product (server) installer.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The issue is seen only when installation in performed against a
    location which has MQXR folder already present in the target
    path. The presence of this unexpected directory caused the
    installation logic to report the AMQ4739MQ when attempting to
    set permissions on the installed directories.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ Client install code has been modified to rectify the
    problem.
