    Dear Ryan,

    I noticed one thing, the .NET addins do not get installed during a typical Setup.

    Am I doing the right thing or have you folks stopped shipping the VSAI folder from DB2 9.5?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The IBM DB2 9.5 Visual Studio Add-In can now be downloaded from:
    https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?lang=en_US&source=swg-db295vsa
    This is a free download, though you will need an IBM registration ID to access the download page.
    Installation instructions are included in the "install.txt" readme file, located inside the zip archive.

    Hi, I tried downloading DB2 Express-C 9.5 for Sun Solaris but link does not provide the complete tar file. I have attached an image of the file size that has been downloaded and its only 143 bytes in size. Is there any link I could get this download from?

    Here's the link to the file download as well.

    Hi,

    The DB2 Express-C 9.5 downloads for Solaris x64 are not availabile yet. We are working on these downloads now, and there will be an announcement coming up soon with more exact dates. In the meantime, we are working on disabling the Solaris download option for DB2 Express-C so people don't run into this problem. Stay tuned for to the forum/web page for more updates on exact dates.

    Hi Kenneth,

    The FTP site is for everyone - there shouldn't be a problem with accessing it from outside IBM.

    If you are using an FTP client, login with username "anonymous" and your email as a password. If you're trying to click on the link in the post, I've found that the forum doesn't resolve URLs properly (it just takes you back to this page).

    Cheers,

    Are there any plans for a Mac Version of DB2 Express-C?

    Some months ago there have been rumors that IBM is working on porting DB2 to Intel Mac and that a beta should be out relatively soon (before winter kicks in). See http://antoniocangiano.com/2007/09/19/db2-on-mac/ for the original post.

    Hi,fec

    Which browser do you use as default Window's browser ?

    If you set non-IE browser as a default ,
    I suggest to set IE as a default browser when you execute setup.exe.
