DB2CC and XP SP2

P: n/a
I know this isn't strictlt a DB2 problem, but I hope someone can help me.

I running DB2 v5 on XP and have just installed SP2. Now DB2CC fails to load
with "The application failed to initialize (0xc0000005)".

Any ideas, apart from upgrade or backout SP2?! Does anyone know what the
changes are to XP that would cause such an error?

Thanks

How about upgrading DB2 to a current version?

I'm amazed you ever got DB2 V5 to work on XP in the first place. You may be
only the peson who's ever managed that feat.

XP SP2 added a firewall that blocks ports used by DB2CC. You have to
configure the firewall. For supported versions of DB2, there's a paper on
the IBM web site that tells you how to do this.

Hi

V5 was written for W95 and NT, and XP still looks like NT (as far as V5 is
concerned), whereas I couldn't get the thing to run on W98 or ME!

I did see the paper you refer to but dismissed it on two counts. First, I
assume that because the database is on the same box as the client, there
would be no ip/port useage. The other point is that there is an entry in the
XP system event log showing the initialisation failure, but nothing in the
application log, indicating the the program didn't get very far.

Of course, my assumptions could be completely wrong - I'll give it a shot if
you think I am!

Thanks for the reply

Have just come across an explanation of 'Software DEP' at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro.../sp2mempr.mspx.
Also a condensed version in MS Knowledgebase article 875352.

I won't be able to try it for a couple of days - I'll let you know.
