    WebSphere Application Server v9.0 creates a Microsoft Windows
    registry key in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/IBM/WebSphere
    Application Server/8.5.0.0". This is replacing registry
    information for a v8.5 install with v9.0 information.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Microsoft Windows registry key is fixed such that the key
    will be "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/IBM/WebSphere Application
    Server/9.0.0.0" with a "MajorVersion" of 9.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
