    Unanswered: DB2 express-c process_error during installation

    I have a problem while installing db2 express-c.
    I try to install it under windows vista, and encountered the following message twice during the process of installation.

    'An error occured while trying to start the DB2 instance.
    The return code is 4 and the SQL message is: PROCESS_ERROR'

    I was able to install it anyway but unable to create sample database.

    Would you pls assist me in sloving the above problem.
    Thanks in advance,

    I would try the DB2 Express-C Community forum on the IBM website.

    My guess would be that it's related to Windows security settings. Review the installation log for clues. As to the sample database, you'll have to define what "unable" means.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.
