  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If there is an existing DB2 installed on Windows platforms, the
    default installation location shown in the GUI panel is
    incorrect. For example, the existing DB2 is installed to
    C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB, the install panel will still show
    the same path and thus installation will failed.
    
    For DB2 Runtime Client product, this incorrect default path will
    cause the new Runtime Client installed to the existing DB2 copy
    (instead of a new DB2 copy).
    

Local fix

  • For DB2 Data Server and Client products, manually update the
    installation location to a new path.
    
    For DB2 Runtime Client, choose "CUSTOM" install type and then
    manually choose a new installation path.
