Error description

  • Error Description:
    Installing 5.3.1 does not reset the Patch level entry in the
    Gentran Server registry
    (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sterling
    Commerce\GENTRAN\Server\5.3.1\PatchRevision).
    If Gentran Administrator is run after upgrading to 5.3.1 it
    could report that a patch is installed for 5.3.1 when there is
    no patch installed.
    See sample below:
    
    DATE: 2013/02/15 11:26:02 GentranAdministrator.exe ver: 5.3.1
    
    GENTRAN SYSTEM INFORMATION
    Primary System Name: GENSYS
    Secondary Controller: Unavailable
    Gentran Version: 5.3.1 Patch #3
    
    This will get very confusing once patches start being released
    for version 5.3.1.
    

Local fix

  • STRRTC - 367226
    CF/CF
    
    Circumvention: None
    

Problem summary

  • The 5.3.1 install does not remove previous patch number from the
    registry after an upgrade
    

Problem conclusion

  • The 5.3.1.0 install now writes 'Patch 0' to the registry and the
    about boxes when doing a create, upgrade, or join.  Future GSW
    releases will delete the patch number from the registry after an
    upgrade.
