Error description

  • DB2 V9 Client does not proceed past the 'Language Selection'
    panel during the GUI install when setup.exe is run from command
    prompt with a language switch (e.g. setup.exe -i EN) which
    differs from the language being used for the OS regional
    settings
    
    The problem happens in the following scenario:
    1). It is a v9 DB2 Client install
    2). It is the first db2 product installed on the system
    3). The install lang is not the default machine lang. The
    "-i [lang]" option is in the cmd line, eg. setup.exe -i EN on a
    German machine, or setup.exe -i FR on an English machine
    4). 'Typical' or 'Compact' install type is selected in the GUI
    install.
    
    This problem is not applicable for response file based silent
    install.
    

Local fix

  • Possible workarounds include:
    1) Selecting 'Custom' install type in the GUI install if you
    want to use language switch '-i [lang]'.
    2) Change your OS regional settings to the same language as that
    of the language switch being used when setup.exe. is run
    3) Not using the /i en switch.
