Will Not Be Addressed
The development team has considered the issue or request and concluded it will not be addressed. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
When a user runs the Patchfinder utility after installing ArcGIS-1022-E-PWMAS-Patch.msp, Patchfinder alerts that the Desktop version of the patch is installed. This is due to an incorrect registry entry made by the patch setup. This issue does not affect, in any way, the use of the Windows ArcGIS Engine software. The registry key is only there for the specific use of the Patchfinder utility.
The installation issue with the Windows ArcGIS Engine setup is caused by BUG-000082730; When installing the PDF Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere Patch for ArcGIS Engine, it is added to the registry with an ArcGIS Desktop Registry Key.
Esri replaced the .msp file on the patch download page with a corrected setup on October 22, 2014. For users that have already downloaded and installed this file, Esri is providing a registry batch file that will update the Patchfinder registry key to be the appropriate Engine product name.
