Error description

  • When silent installation of Runtime Client is done with
    CREATE_ICON=NO , db2.exe is not installed.
    
    The problem is recreatable as follows :
    
     1. In the RSP file, marked the CREATE_ICONS = NO.
    
    2. Silent installation of runtime client done :
    "v9.7fp4_ntx64_rtcl.exe /S /v"/l*v rtcl.log /qn
    RSP_FILE_PATH=c:\rsp\db2rtcl.rsp"
    
    3. Now under start -> All Programs -> IBM DB2 ,  the RUNTIME
    client copy is not seen.
    
    4. Also under the installed DB2 path , example : C:\Program
    Files (x86)\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN , DB2.EXE is not installed. It is
    missing
    
    5. Did silent installation by setting CREATE_ICONS = Yes and
    under BIN folder DB2.EXE is seen.
    

Local fix

  • Do the silent installation with CREATE_ICONS=YES
