    Question Unanswered: Error - Installing Db2

    Hi All,

    I am very new to DB2, I am trying to install DB2 v9.1, but its throwing error as "Invalid Command line argument. Consult the windows Installer SDK for detailed command line help"".

    I have tried to reinstall SDK 4.5 version, but still the issue persists, any help is appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Viveka

    thanks for the reply...

    I have checked the version, with platform its correct. There is no SQL error code and I have admin rights in my m/c. I am installing with an exe not from command line.

    This exe works in other syste, only in my system this error comes.

    I have click on setup.exe and the window "DB2 Setup Launchpad" came up and selected "Install a Product" in which below the section 'DB2 Enterprise Server Edition' I selected "Install New", after which the Install shield wizard is complete and it opens up Windows installer window where it throws the above mentioned error.

    I couldn't find any log file created, if you have any idea about the default location of log file, pls let me know. I will see that.

    it is below documents and settings all users application data...
    I had a similar problem and used the sample response file shipped and this installed db2
    look for *.rsp file and activate needed setting
    start setup with response file as option (syntax is in infocenter)
