5.1.6.7.1. ODBC Driver installation

 

The “IBM DB2 ODBC” driver is very quick to install. The connection from Anatella to DB2 is usually setup in a few minutes.

 

Follow these steps:

 

1.Unzip the zip file containing the IBM DB2 ODBC driver.

 

For your convenience, you can go here to download the latest DB2 ODBC drivers:

2.Important: Don’t run now any executable that originates from the ZIP file: First and before, you have to move the extracted content of the zip file to the final destination folder: Typically, you’ll have:
 

On a 64-bit system for a 64-bit ODBC driver: Copy the files into “C:\Program Files\IBM”
On a 64-bit system for a 32-bit ODBC driver: Copy the files into “C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM”
On a 32-bit system for a 32-bit ODBC driver: Copy the files into “C:\Program Files\IBM”

 

For example, on my 64-bit system (and 64-bit ODBC driver), I will have the following files:

 

ANATEL~2_img116

 
 

3.Open an “Administrator Command Prompt” (right-click on the command prompt and choose "Run as administrator"), go to the install folder (e.g. “c:\program files\IBM\bin”) and type:

Here is an illustration of the procedure:
