DB2 - Problem description

Problem IC75730 Status: Closed

SOME 32-BIT DB2 REGISTRY KEYS ARE NOT SET DURING THE SILENT INSTALL OF
64-BIT IBM DATA SERVER DRIVER PACKAGE (DSDRIVER)

product:
DB2 CONNECT / DB2CONNCT / 970 - DB2
Problem description:
When the 64-bit IBM Data Server Driver Package (DsDriver) is 
installed via a response file based silent install, the 
following 32-bit DB2 registry keys are not set in the 32-bit 
registry hive 
(1) DB2 Path Name,  under: 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\DB2\InstalledCopies\<CopyName>\ 
    Some 32-bit DB2 applications need this registry to work with 
the 32-bit DB2 libraries installed with the 64-bit DB2 product. 
 
(2) The OLEDB GUIDs, under: 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\DB2\InstalledCopies\<CopyName>\Ins 
tallData\ 
These OLEDB GUIDs are needed in order to register the DB2 OLE DB 
providers. 
 
Since those 32-bit DB2 registry keys are not set during 
the silent 64-bit DsDriver install, some 32-bit DB2 applications 
will not be able to work with the 64-bit DsDriver installed, and 
the OLE DB provider will not be registered.
