Pinned topic DB2 GUI tools JAVA splash screen starts to open and then disappears

When trying to open one of supplied DB2 GUI tools the Java splash screen starts to open and then disappears. 

The problem is due to corrupted *.prf files.

Rename the following *.prf files to *.prf.backup and start the GUI tool again.

  • db2cache.prf

    Hello!  We've had a number of clients respond through feedback to our technical documents indicating that they have further questions or comments that require additional dialogue.  Unfortunately, our feedback is anonymous, so unless an email address or other contact information is included, we have no way to get back in touch with you.
    Within DB2 support, the management team asked if we could somehow link our documents to the forums so that we could invite more discussion - like this!   As a start, we chose about 30 technical articles and "seeded" the forum with initial entries so that we could have a starting place for conversation.  The documents have now been updated with links to the forums as well.  
    Hopefully, we will make DB2 support better by providing more interaction around our technical information!
