Error description

  • When both DB2 v8 and DB2 v9 are installed, the v9 Configuration
    Assistant uses the v8 Registry Key for ibmdadb2.dll. This means
    that both the OLE DB and the ADO Connection Tests fail.
    
    The v9 Configuration Assistant reads
     HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IBMDADB2\CLSID
    which is the v8 key. It should be reading
     HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IBMDADB2.DB2COPY1
    instead. (DB2COPY1 being the v9 installation)
    
    Please note that this problem does not affect OLEDB
    applications, and this is specific to Windows
