Error description

  • During the setup of V95FP1 DB2 Thin client, a MessageBox opens:
    
    "MDAC 2.8 RTM is incompatible with this version of Windows. All
    of its features are currently part of Windows. "
    
    After the user clicks on the 'cancel' button, the setup of DB2
    Thin Client continues and will be completed. By the way, this
    error does not occur when the DB2 Client product is installed on
    the same machine.
    
    The cause of this problem is:
    
    The version of MDAC installed with Windows XP SP2 is 2.81, and
    the version of MDAC bundled in DB2 is 2.8. The DB2 Thin Client
    setup program tries to configure MDAC 2.8 on the system, where
    it already has higher level of MDAC. Thus, the Windows OS
    displays that message.
    

Local fix

  • User can ignore the error message by clicking on ?Cancel? button
    and db2 gets installed and functions properly
