Environment:
z/OS

Cause: 
The installer uses default keylist that are part of BPXW application, but the BPXW application is not installed. 

Resolution: 
You may generate a STANDARD keylist in ISPF and rename it to "BPXW" keylist.

Follow these steps:

- Go into ISPF/PDF PRIMARY OPTION MENU 
- Option ===> Settings
- Select "Function Keys"
- Select "2. Keylist settings"
- Select "View" and choose "3. Specify a keylist application ID.."
- Overwrite the application ID ISR with BPXW and press Enter
- Click 'File' and select "1.NEW" 
- Specify the "Keylist Name . .  STANDARD" and press Enter.
- A new empty key list entry. You should fill the values with the following values:

You need to use PF8 to go to the last values.

This will create a PRIVATE key list that can be used with your userid.
