Error description

  • When installing the 64-bit version of the IBM Data Server Driver
    Package on a Windows machine, the location specified for the
    'DB2 Common Application Data Top Path' may not be used for
    32-bit applications.
    
    The DB2 Common Application Data Top Path is used to store files
    such as the db2cli.ini and db2dsdriver.cfg.   For 32-bit
    applications the path that was set during installation will not
    be used if the path specified is different from the default
    path.
    
    The default path is different depending on the version of
    Windows that is being used.
    
    On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003: C:\Documents and
    Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\DB2\driver_copy_name\cfg
    On Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008:
    C:\ProgramData\IBM\DB2\driver_copy_name\cfg
    
    64-bit applications however will continue to use the proper path
    that was specified during the installation.
    

Local fix

  • The environment variables DB2CLIINIPATH and DB2DSDRIVER_CFG_PATH
    can be set to point to the desired path.
