Description
See CR 6709081: 6u11 installer should not patch 6u10-beta releases

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install 6u10-beta
2. Install 6u11-fcs
3. It will try and patch the 6u10-beta jre image, but it will get a patcher error (because it's expecting 6u10-fcs)

We'll need some way of detecting if an installed release is non-fcs, and tell the user to uninstall it before upgrading.

EVALUATION

save information about the patch-image and full version to the registry, like:
HKLM/Software/Javasoft/Java Runtime Environment/1.6.0_10
FullVersion=1.6.0_10-fcs
ImageCkSum=2874839274143

SUGGESTED FIX

Set properties FullVersion and ImageCkSum and write to registry during JRE install.
