UDB on Windows Millennium Edition?

UDB on Windows Millennium Edition?
Has anyone successfully installed DB2 UDB Personal Edition (version 7) on
Windows ME? The documentation refers only to Windows 95/98, but their
successor, Windows Millennium Edition, didn't start shipping until last
September.

If you have tried this, do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi,
After struggling with ME per se - I gave up on it, didn't even recognize my
DVD...
I use only WIN2000.
This has nothing to do with DB2 UDB, I didn't even reach the step of
installing software.

Yes, I got it to work. But it is a mess since there is no autoexec.bat file
etc., and everything that was in autoexec, is logged into the ME register,
without you easily being able to modify it. There are a lot of nice
features in ME, but the nicest feature is the advice to STAY AWAY FROM IT!
Besides it pucks have the time when an install leaves stuff in a newly
created autoexec.bat, and then on startup ME has to take that stuff and move
it into the register and so on.

Windows 98 or Windows 2000. Period. ME nice for strictly home multimedia,
family use. Not much else. But what gets nuts, is that Dell is shipping ME
on a lot of their desktops, with no alternative.

Regards,
Richard
