.......man...I hate this....

updated zen to current patches which worked out OK;
but,, server became sluggish with cms/reporting server just ending up
as "starting" and taking a LOT of cpu..

So,, next step to uninstall and maybe,,reinstall, but NO:

Followed the tid to first uninstall BOE = OK
Then run the batchfile = OK

Then ( which no tid states though ) uninstall the reporting server
from add/remove program.s... = NO,
the logger for the uninstall simply states;
" exceptionjava.lang.illegalargumentexception" regopenkeyex returned 2

tried both commandline and through add/remove = no difference...
