    You mean you want to install a DB2 FixPak? Just download the FixPak and the README file accompanying it. Read the README and follow the procedure outlined therein.

    Hot fix

    Actually there is no read me file. Thats one thing.
    I stoped the services and i started the installation of the hotfix but it says that this hotfix cannot be installed for this DB2 express edition. i m trying to install this hotfix to solve the instance cannot be found issue because of the environmental variable thing. but environmental variable is being provided ,even then when i give the command db2start it does not start. my operatiing system is XP Professional.

    If you have DB2 Express-C (which is different from DB2 Express) you cannot install fixpacks unless you have the subscription version (which costs $3000 per server per year).

    You could maybe uninstall and then install the latest version of the free DB2 Express-C. Would that be an option? Could you verify whether you already have the latest version?
