How to silently install Rational ClearCase on Microsoft Windows 64 bit and 32 bit operating systems with minimum changes to the response file

Technote (FAQ)


How can you silently install IBM Rational ClearCase on a Microsoft Windows 64 bit operating system using a changed response file that was used for the Microsoft Windows 32 bit installation?


You do not want to use different response files for the Microsoft Windows 64 bit installation and the 32 bit installation.


The standard response file used for installing Rational ClearCase onto a Microsoft Windows 32 bit operating system, contains the following line which specifies the Rational ClearCase installation directory:

 - <profile id="IBM Rational SDLC" installLocation="C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalSDLC">

When installing Rational ClearCase onto a 64 bit Microsoft Windows operating system, it will be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC, as Rational ClearCase is a 32 bit application.

Therefore, when installing Rational ClearCase on a Windows 64 bit operating system, this line should read:

- <profile id="IBM Rational SDLC" installLocation="C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC">

This means that the same file can be used although with alterations.
