Has anyone had an issue installing DB2 connect v11.1 on a Windows 10 desktop and did you figure out how to make it successful? Here is an issue we are seeing:
Part of the DB2 Client installation asks where you want to install the app it also asks what you want to name your DB2 copy. Previously, with 10.5, I had decided that the path would be C:\Program Files\IBM\DB2DSClient and the DB2 copy name would be DB2DSC. With version 11 I made a slight change to the install path to C:\Program Files\IBM\DB2DSClient11 while leaving the Db2 copy name the same. IBM’s default install path is C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB and the default copy name is DB2COPY1.
I started to think that maybe there was an issue with me changing the defaults, so on my Windows 10 test VM I ran the setup.exe and took all the defaults. I just wanted it to be a generic install of DB2 so I could test the response file uninstall. I then rebooted the machine and copied the uninstall response file to C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\install. Finally, I ran the command "C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\db2unins" -u "C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\install\DB2DSC_11_1_FP2_Uninstall.rsp" -y -l %windir%\Key_Logs\DB2DSC_11.1_FP2_Uninstall.log.
I get the same error as I reported earlier (The DB2 copy is damaged or does not exist).
I then tried to run the following command "C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\db2unins" -p CLIENT and received the same error.
