Upgrade error to version 7.0 and 6.10.10x+ if node installed in C:\Program Files (x86)

DUAS Setup 6.10.101+ or 7.0.01 or superior on Windows finishes as OK whereas it leaves a node that cannot be started as it does not handle properly if the node had been installed in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\xxx"
The reason can be visible in the maintenance_debug.log:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AUTOMIC\DUAS\UNI610_vmstm2k1601\bin>call :edit_title "Upgrade log4j.xml if necessary..." 
"Upgrade log4j.xml if necessary..."
C:\Program Files (x86)\AUTOMIC\DUAS\UNI610_vmstm2k1601\bin>goto:eof

C:\Program Files (x86)\AUTOMIC\DUAS\UNI610_vmstm2k1601\bin>call :upgrade_file_log4j 
\AUTOMIC\DUAS\UNI610_vmstm2k1601\data\data_java\log4j.xml] was unexpected at this time.

While starting you will get this error:

Defect in the Windows Setup



First, fix the version.dat to show the correct newer version would be to launch the command universion with the build of the version you are upgrading to, ie. for 6.10.101 the build is 048, so you would need to launch from bin:

universion -addver -build 048 U


For versin 7.0.01, the build is 981, so you should launch:

universion -addver -build 981 U

Then when you will launch universion -history you will see this kind of information:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AUTOMIC\DUAS\UNI610_vmstm2k1601\bin>universion -history
