The problem is seen in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1 -

  • Customer has installed IBM Rational Application Developer V7.0 (with or without service prior to V7.0.0.2) and IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 (with or without V7.0.0.1).
  • Customer installs IBM Rational Application Developer interim fix V7.0.0.2.
  • The impact is some functionality within IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 will be rendered unusable.

Scenario 2 -
  • Customer has installed IBM Rational Application Developer V7.0 (with or without service prior to V7.0.0.2) but has not installed IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0.
  • Customer installs IBM Rational Application Developer interim fix V7.0.0.2.
  • Customer will not be able to install IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 until the next IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 service update is available.

If IBM Rational Application Developer interim fix V7.0.0.2 is installed, and you cannot wait for the next IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 service update, the following is required:
  • Uninstall IBM WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 by following these steps.

      This will cause the Installation Manager to treat the errors that block the uninstall as warnings which can be ignored to allow the uninstall to continue.
    3. Uninstall WDz 7.0. When the warnings appear, continue through them and proceed with the uninstall.
  • Uninstall IBM Rational Application Developer V7.0.
