Progress Explorer Tool and Windows 2008 registry fix/hack

Is there much problems getting 8.03.409A working on Server 2008 64 bit?
I need new hardware and do not want to put server 2003 or 32 bit on it unless I have to.
Is the Registry fix the only problem installing on it?
Thanks

This reg entry worked for me, thanks for this little tidbit of advice.

Found this fascinating piece of information today. To get around the unceremonious crash that happens when trying to run the Progress Explorer Tool on Windows 2008 Server, make the following registry change:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Java VM –> EnableJIT
change from 01000000 to 00000000

Unsupported of course, no warranties and all that jazz, but it worked for me.

Is anyone else running this way?

Yes, but I think this only worked on non-R2, 32-bit Windows 2008.

Actually, this trick used to be documented in the Progress
Knowledgebase, but
now the only solution given is to use the supported OpenEdge Explorer which
IMHO is a better solution.

Where can I get my hands on this supported OpenEdge Explorer? I'm all for doing it the right way. I just needed a quick and dirty as I run through the 9.05 Pass Thru upgrade.

You can download it from EpicWeb under version 9.05.600 in the third
party/open edge folder

Good to know. I think I assumed that was the same as the admin tools that get installed with the normal OpenEdge install. I'll give it a go.

It's on the installation DVD as well. There's a 32-bit and a 64-bit version;
you need to install the one that matches your Progress architecture.

Be sure to stop the OpenEdge AdminService before attempting to install.
Better yet, disable it and reboot.

Does this work for Windows Server 2008 Server R2 64-bit as well? I do use the Open Edge Management Web Tool when I can but for stopping and restarting the appservers I prefer to use the PET tool.

I use this trick on 2008R2 64 bit and it works. You just have to make sure you
don't set the auto-connect or it will crash.

I'm using 2008 Server Standard R2, so.........yes (hopefully).

AFIAK, R2 is x64 only.

So I'm trying to install the 32-bit version (because I have the 32-bit server installed), but after I put the keys in, and click Next, it just freezes until I kill the installer.

AdminService is stopped.

Anyone else have this problem?
