Pinned topic Error during Install Phase - IBM Data studio 3.1

‏2013-02-15T09:38:59Z |
Hi,

Whentrying to install IBM data studio 3.1 (Non administrative client) in Windows Server r2 2008 , I am getting the below error.

Error during "install" phase:
Can not create shortcut file "C:\Users\Arunpiu\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\My IBM Installation Manager\IBM Installation Manager.lnk" for "C:\Users\Arunpiu\AppData\Local\IM\eclipse\IBMIM.exe". Before re-installing the product verify that a valid shortcut file can be created at this location.Please help me with this issue.

    Please clarify how you installed the product. Can you give me the size of the downloaded file from which you ran the installation from?

    Hi,

    Downloaded file size is 1.18 GB(Compressed). I ran the setup.exe, choose non-admin client as the product to be installed,gave the location and when the installation process is in progress, I got the above said error.

    Please follow this work-around:
    -From the same location of setup.exe, cd to disk1\InstallerImage_win32
    -Run "userinst.exe". That will bypass the launchpad, which gives you problem in this case, and install the product as a non-admin user.

    Let me know how it goes.
