IBM Client Access in Windows 7

Yet another older program having issues in windows 7. This time the program runs well enough, it’s just that it doesn’t seem to complete the installation and you don’t find that out until you log in as a non-admin user. You get a message “An Administrator must logon after restarting windows to complete the installation” .  The wierd part is you don’t get that mesage when logging on as an admin. It seems that UAC is getting in the way of client access install finishing up registering some DLLs that you don’t really need anyway.  To help CA install cleanup you simply need to go to c:\programs files\ibm\client access\ and run cwbsreg.exe as administrator.  That will register four dlls, clear the marker file and remove it’s self from the HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run key. This is for Client access 5.3  It may be applicable to other versions but I’ve not tested that.
