Installing a fix pack for a single database product (Windows)

Follow these instructions if a single Db2® database product is already installed and you want to apply a new fix pack level. The setup command is used to install the fix pack.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you meet all of the fix pack prerequisites.
  • Ensure that you have the appropriate installation user accounts. In general, the user account must belong to the Administrators group on the machine where you will perform the installation.


To install a fix pack:

  1. Change to the folder where the unzipped files are located.
    The setup command is located under the folder labelled with the abbreviated product name. For example, Db2 Enterprise Server Edition is under SERVER.
  2. Double click the setup.exe file to start the Db2 Setup wizard.
    The Db2 Setup wizard launchpad opens.
  3. Click Install a Product and the Install a Product window displays the products available for installation.
    • Click Install New to create a new Db2 copy.
    • Click Work with Existing to update an existing Db2 copy.
    Online help is available to guide you through the wizard. To invoke online help, click Help or press F1.

What to do next

To complete the installation, perform the necessary post-installation tasks for fix packs.
