Smart Update (BSU) is not able to recognize BEA products. After starting Smart Update, using the bsu.cmd/sh command, you receive the following message:

Unable to locate any supported product installations. Click OK to locate a BEA Home with valid target installations.

After you click OK, you get a selection tree, showing all BEA Home's (ie directories with a 'house icon' next them). But if you click on any of the BEA Homes, you are not able to continue. You may receive message:

The directory selected does not appear to be a valid BEA Home
