IBM please fix your Notes installer

During an upgrade you call MSI Custom Action  ibmUpdateRegForMultiUser
It tries to run in the User Context. The CA calls a UpgradeUtils.dll which must contain some code that when runs gets error 2


Most installs of Notes are done under the system context hence the following error and the upgrade fails.

MSI ERROR: "UpgradeUtils/UpdateRegForMultiUser (Line 6743): Error - 'GetPropertyFromRegistry' for 'REGDATAPATHPROPERTY' failed with return code '2' - The system cannot find the file specified.
