Pb with Feature Install 1.2.2 under OS/2 Warp 3

I wanted to install JAVA 1.1.6 and I saw that I needed FEATURE INSTALL 1.2.2 for this.
So, I installed FEATURE INSTALL 1.2.2 following the documentation of this product.
After setting up, it created this new object with only one option in the settings menu (General Only).
The problem is not this object itself but all data files which are associated automatically and have the same behavior in the settings menu.
I tried to destroy it by moving on diskette then by deleting the key in OS2.INI using INIedit.
But it didn't work. I applied Fixpack 35 too. But it didn't work any more!

Have you look into the OS2SYS.INI?
I've Feature Install installed on my machine but I didn't see any setting changes as you suggested. Could you provide more information with regard to the error you get?
Thank you.

There's nothing in OS2SYS.INI.
There's no error message on my system, only these strange settings I've already described.
I forgot to tell you that I have a French version of OS/2 Warp 3 with Fixpack 35 applied.
Have you got a new Data file object called Data File:1 in the templates folder? This object has only General option in the settings menu. All data files are associated to this object and have the same behavior. This is the problem!

There are two things you can do:
1. Deregister the ObjData class with a WPS classbrowser. So you will completely get rid of the "Hammer&Screwdriver". AFAIK there's no negative effect.
2. Take a look at OS/2 e-zine! (www.os2ezine.com). There is an article in issue vol.3 no.7 called "Using that hammer and screwdriver". By following the given instructions you can turn this new object into something quite useful and get rid of the annoying associations.

Thank you very much crismo.
Finally, I took a look to OS/2 E-Zine article you mentionned
and I followed it by creating dereg.cmd to solve the problem.
