Re: RD Power 8.5.1 fixpack now available!2012-12-27T15:06:27Z in response to eric.simpsonI started IBM Installation Manager, selected the update to 8.5.1, accepted the license agreements and got the screen asking me to select the features to install (everything is pre-selected). When I click "Next" it starts "collecting files", then asks me to install the first disk. What do I have setup wrong???
Thanks in advance,

Re: RD Power 8.5.1 fixpack now available!2012-12-27T17:36:25Z in response to eric.simpsonI have my install media on an EIMAGE since I downloaded it from passport advantage.
Once I unzipped the EIMAGE, there is a folder named DISK1. I just pointed the install manager to Disk1 and the update proceeded.
Hope that helps.
Re: RD Power 8.5.1 fixpack now available!2012-12-27T18:47:08Z in response to gkernI went in through Fix Central and downloaded a file called RDPOWER-8.5.1.zip. This has no folder or sub-folder named DISK1. Instead it has all of the jars, xmls, and other typical eclipse files. I suspect this requires a different install path (or I got the wrong update file?).
Re: RD Power 8.5.1 fixpack now available!2013-02-01T15:52:27Z in response to GMan_PartnersTo anyone following this thread, I finally got the update installed, thanks to a little help from Jon Paris. The "disk" that is needed is from the original install media for V8.5.0. I was looking for a folder named "disk1" within the fix pack...NEVER considered that the original media would be needed.
We have 3 disks related to RDP: One labled "Quick Start", one labeled "RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i" and a third with no special designation. It was that third disk that worked for me.
I haven't checked the complete list of fixes, but now when you click in the outline and have multiple views open for a source member, the view which last had focus is the one that gets repositioned...that had been an inconvenient quirk...glad they got that one fixed!
