While installing Db2 E-C on XP SP2 the first time, I got an error message in the installer about:
DB29501E DB2 has found an inconsitend environment, check: "DB2INSTANCE: -2029059916". (translated from german)
This error now is also displayed no matter which program i want to start from the start menu.
I do have a db2instance environemtn variable which reads "DB2".

I'd suggest you check these files:
Both or only one may show up. These files capture messages during the installation. Look for "error" and see what you find. I suspect something went wrong during the installation, possibly, the DB2 instance was not created (you can check if the service DB2-DB2-0 exists or not, if it's not there, then the DB2 instance was not created). You can create this instance manually from the DB2 Command Window using this command:

Re: WinXP: Installation PRoblem DB29501E "DB2INSTANCE: -2029059916"2006-01-31T01:44:45Z in response to rfchongSame situation with me.
Xp Pro Sp2; I selected the start manual option.
Is this related to XP Pro SP2 security. I have run into having to identify preograms and ports as exceptions for other programs on XP Pro sp2.
Re: WinXP: Installation PRoblem DB29501E "DB2INSTANCE: -2029059916"2006-01-31T14:01:33Z in response to rfchongThanks for the info with the log files. The Instance was indeed not created.
Sadly enough I could not reproduce the Problem, but I suspect it was a PATH or CLASSPATH or TEMP variable which caused the problem, because those I had fixed inbetween. Installing multiple times with intermediate reboots solved the problem :-(
I can now use it.

Re: WinXP: Installation PRoblem DB29501E "DB2INSTANCE: -2029059916"2006-01-31T01:05:16Z in response to SystemAdminFirst check system environment variables once again(Setting->Control Panel->System Advanced; Environment variables; System Variables ):
DB2PATH=C:\IBM\SQLLIB (example value)
then check the name of your instance:
if the instance name is DB2 (which is OK) try to remove the instance
and recreate it:
or you can try:
db2icrt -u db2admin DB2
(first command will run DB2 as local system, second as db2admin, where db2admin is a user of your choice, but should have administrative priviledges on windows).
