Novell ZENworks Patch Management 11


System management patches write to the wrong registry location if application and OS bit versions differ.
A 32 bit application is installed on a 64 bit workstation.


This is fixed in version 11.2.3a - see KB 7011295 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3a - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at
Workaround:  Install the same bit version of the application as the workstation.


When the bundle is doing a version check it is not looking at the application installed, it is looking for the OS version, thus it updates the incorrect location in the registry.
