  2. Hi idg,

    The best way to recover after an unsuccesful install is to:

    1. Run db2unins -f in the command line from the installer folder to clear away any inconsistencies:

    2. Run the install again. On Vista, you have to make sure to right-click and choose "Run as Administrator" to ensure the install succeeds.

    If you have any further issues, the DB2 Express-C forum can help:
