    Profile Management Tool(PMT) was added to 64-bit operating
    systems (Microsoft Windows, Linux, AIX and Solaris) in fix pack
    7.0.0.23. A start menu shortcut to PMT was created as a result
    on Microsoft Windows and Linux, but it is not removed when PMT
    is uninstalled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new uninstall config action was written to delete the start
    menu shortcut to Profile Management Tool(PMT) when it is
    uninstalled.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.25.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
    page for delivery information:

    manually.
