Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Developer for z Systems install was enhanced such that
    when only IBM Debug for z Systems components are installed, the
    shortcut, the workbench title, the splash screen and the about
    dialog indicate IBM Debug for z Systems.  Installing any other
    IBM Developer for z Systems components, will result in IBM
    Developer for z Systems appearing in the shortcut, the workbench
    title, the splash screen and the about dialog.
    This fix applies to IBM Debug for z Systems.
