    I don't know if it will fix the problem, but I have always had better luck with DB2 Windows when I manually extracted the files to a directory via Winzip and then run the setup program.

    You might get better help on this problem at the DB2 Express-C forum on the IBM website.

    You should be able to extract a self-extracting zip in most cases (using Winzip, etc), but not sure about this particular file.
