To install the hotfix using the GUI
------------------------------------
1. Double click the hotfix executable file to extract the contents to a default location on the cluster node.
On 32-bit systems, the files are extracted to:
"%commonprogramfiles%Veritas SharedWxRTPrivates"

"%commonprogramfiles(x86)%Veritas SharedWxRTPrivates"
The Hotfix Installer Wizard is automatically launched after all the files are extracted.
2. Click "Next" on the Welcome screen.
The Hotfix Installation Tasks panel lists the tasks that are performed by the installer. 
3. Click "Install Private" to install the hotfix.
The status of each task is updated as it gets completed.

1. At the command prompt run any of the following commands to extract the hotfix files to the default location:
C:	emp><PrivateName_Platform.exe> /x

For example, to extract this hotfix on a 32-bit cluster node, the command is:
