Quick Beginnings for DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition for UNIX

Chapter 11. Installing DB2 Clients on Windows 3.x Workstations


If you have a previous version of the DB2 Client Application Enabler for Windows 3.x installed on your system, it is recommended that you back it up before beginning this installation procedure.

To install the DB2 Client Application Enabler on Windows 3.x workstations:

  1. Insert the DB2 Client Application Enablers CD-ROM that contains the Windows 3.x client into the drive.

  2. To begin the installation program enter:

    where x: is the letter representing your CD-ROM drive and where language is the two-character country code that represents your language (for example, EN for English). Table 28 lists the code for each available language.

    The Install window opens.

  3. In the Install window, indicate whether or not you want to update the autoexec.bat file as part of the installation.

  4. Click on OK to continue. The Install-directories window opens.
    Install--directories window

  5. In the File directory field, type the directory where you want the product installed. The default value is c:\sqllib.


    If you are installing the DB2 Client Application Enabler for Windows 3.x on an OS/2 system that already has the DB2 Client Application Enabler for OS/2 Version 5 product installed, enter the same directory in the File directory field as the DB2 Client Application Enabler for OS/2 product. This will merge the two DB2 directories together, allowing tools like the Client Configuration Assistant to be used to configure clients to access a remote DB2 database for both Windows 3.x and OS/2 applications.

  6. Select the components that you want to install.

  7. Click on the Install push button to start the installation. A progress window appears until the installation is complete.

    You can click on the Stop push button at any time to end the installation.

  8. Once you have completed the installation, shut down and reboot your system.


To configure your client to access remote servers, go to Chapter 14. "Configuring Client-to-Server Communications Using the CCA".
