Error description

  • When you install DB2 9 or DB2 9.5 Runtime Client using a
    response file it fails if a value is specified for the LANG
    keyword in the response file.
    
    For example, it fails if the response file contains the line
    LANG = EN
    
    If a value is specified for the LANG keyword in the response
    file when you use it to try to install DB2 9 or DB2 9.5
    Runtime Client
    then the product does not get installed and the installation log
    contains messages like these
    (substituting for EN the actual value specified for the LANG
    keyword):
    
     1: ERROR:A Response file error occurred. The value "EN" is not
     valid for the keyword "LANG".
     1: ERROR:Failed to set Windows Installer feature selection
     properties.
    
    
    This problem does not occur with any product other than DB2
    Runtime Client.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, remove the line containing the LANG keyword
    from the response file.
    
    For example, remove the line
     LANG = EN
    from the response file.
