    There is no problem with working on any version. If your machine is 64 bit it is always recommended that you install 64 bit DB2 Exp-C not that you cannot install 32 bit. Go to Control Panel and uninstall/remove DB2 Exp C 32/64 bit and try to download and install 32/64 bit of your choice.

    Hi Stefan,

    Per Sreeharsha's Information Center link, only Windows 7 and newer are supported. You will not be able to install 32-bit DB2 Express-C 10.5 on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. This is related to Microsoft tooling.

    Regards,

    Leons

    Thank you,

    I have solved it by installing DB2 Express version 9.7 on WinXP (it works)  and on notebook Win 7 I will use your advice.
