    Question Unanswered: sql 1390c error while installing DB2 8.1 on windows 7

    HI Everyone...
    During the DB2 8.1 installation, i got an error saying that Db2instance is not defined or invalid...

    The error dialog box shows as :
    [ DB29501E DB2 has detected an inconsistent environment. Please investigate the following:

    i have checked the environment variable 'DB2INSTANCE, initially it was not set, then by entering into the MYcomputer-> Properties->Environment Variables, updated the
    'DB2INSTANCE' variable...but still getting the same error.

    so please anyone could help me out of this error.

    Operating System : windows7 Ultimate(32-bit)

    Thanks in Advance..

    DB2 8 has been out of support for few years now, may be you should consider installing a more recent version?
