George's procedure will lead you to the correct technical answer, but there
might be  a simpler way to resolve this.

It sounds like /usr/OV/bin/DisplayCpyrght is running.  Do a "ps -ef | grep
Display" to find it, and then "kill -9 PID" to get rid of it.  If you don't
find one, then you'd need the lsof procedure George described to determine
what the process is.  After that, you should run the backout and then try
to reinstall.

But an even  simpler method is to simply reboot, then run the backout, and
then reinstall...
The reboot should kill those processes, whatever they are.

Some process is using the copyright file, and it may not be all that
After installation of 7.1.4 you can be left with a couple of processes
named xnmappmon.  If you haven't closed their windows yet. close them.  If
you just minimized them that could be it.

Do you have lsof installed?  If so, do two things.  If not, get it for your
level of the os.  Google it, you'll find it.  or go here:

Run lsof and you will see all the inodes of open files way over on the

use this command to get the inode number of the copyright file:   ls -i

match the two up and you know your process on the left side of the lsof

Any further research needed to solve this you should open a PMR with
