Error description

  • After installing the RP1 FP1 updater kit (10.2.5001.156) on top
    of the Caspian RP1 GA kit (10.2.5000.275), an additional
    shortcut gets created with an incorrect product name.  (IBM
    Cognos ROLAP Cube Designer)??In the start menu we end up with
    two different shortcuts which both point to the same thing. IBM
    Cognos Cube Designer (created from RP1) and IBM Cognos ROLAP
    Cube Designer (created from FP1).  ??The product name is IBM
    Cognos Cube Designer.  In the past releases we made a conscious
    effort to not include ROLAP in any of the components related to
    Dynamic Cubes.??Both shortcuts seem to work, so there doesn't
    seem to be any functional issues other than it being confusing
    to the user.??Not sure exactly when this additional shortcut
    first started showing up.  I did not see this behavior with
    updater kit 10.2.5001.144.??
