  • When applying IHS fixpack, fixpack package will check whether

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM HTTP Server                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Can not install IBM HTTP Server after   *
    *                      installing Visutal Studio 2013          *
    *                      Redistributable Package                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Required Visutal Studio 2013 Redistributable Packages are
    installed. However, Installation Manager fails to detect these
    packages. It calls Windows system command to do the query
    but in this case the command returns with a non-zero return
    code. And this causes Installation Manager stop checking
    Visutal Studio 2013 Redistributable Packages.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to always check the output of the Windows system
    command even though command's return code is non-zero.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in IBM HTTP
    Server fix packs 8.5.5.18 and 9.0.5.5. For more information,
