Error description

  • Brute force option is supposed to be used when one doesn't want
    uninstaller to keep tracking of reference count to related
    sub-products. By the default, 8 version of Global Security
    Kit(GSK) is used by DB2 9.7, it's one of DB2 sub-products.
    However GSK version 7 can be installed as separated product or
    can come in a bunch of another product with no relation to DB2.
    Uninstaller will delete its registry keys, which causes
    irreversible damage to GSK version 7.
    
    Cause of that behavior lies in db2NewRegHKLM.txt file, which is
    used in phase of registry clean-up, it contains keys to be
    deleted. Wrong GSK version was saved in the file.
    

Local fix

  • db2NewRegHKLM.txt file can be modified with correct version of
    GSK.
