DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows

Additional installation considerations (Windows)

Before you install a database product on Windows operating systems, ensure that the system you choose meets the necessary operating system, hardware, and software requirements.

For the most up-to-date installation requirements for database products, see System requirements for IBM® DB2® for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. This techdoc uses IBM Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR). With the SPCR tool, you can locate and find complete lists of supported operating systems, system requirements, prerequisites, and optional supported software for these database products.

In addition to system requirements, installing a data server product on supported Windows operating systems has these additional considerations.

Note: Data server products support the hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature that is built into some Windows operating systems.
