Finding information about what packages are installed by Installation Manager

Question & Answer


Question

Where can you find which packages are installed by the IBM Installation Manager?

Cause

You might find it useful to know what packages are installed by IBM Installation Manager without having to actually launch it. This can be convenient, for example, if you are writing an installation script and you would like to find out what packages are already installed.

Answer

You can find information on what packages are installed and what versions by consulting the installed.xml file, located:

  • On Linux

  • at
    /var/ibm/InstallationManager/installed.xml
  • On Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows 2003

  • at
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\InstallationManager\installed.xml
  • On Microsoft Windows Vista

  • at
    C:\ProgramData\IBM\Installation Manager\installed.xml
  • This is also available for viewing by selecting
    Windows Start Button > IBM Installation Manager > View Installed Packages
