Re-install Development Center

P: n/a

Can someone remind me how to re-install the Development Center? I was
playing with the Environment Settings a bit the other day and, ever since,
it hasn't worked right. I can create a new Project but that's all I can do;
the File and Edit menus are grayed out and I can't seem to find anything
that will re-enable them.

I upgraded from DB2 (LUW) Version 7.2 to Version 8.2 (FP7) on Friday and
applied Fixpack 8 on Saturday. I'm running Windows XP.

I don't think I've ever re-installed a single component of DB2 before so
I'm not ever sure it can be done. I haven't seen anything in the manuals
explaining how to do it either.

Is it possible to re-install the Development Center? If so, how do I do it?
Failing that, is there some way to re-install it without having to
reinstall both Version 8.2 (FP7) and FP8??

I assume you are talking about the DB2 App Development Client which has the
development center in addition to all the features of the DB2 Administrative
client.

You can uninstall the client using the Windows Add/Remove Software, and then
reinstall the App Dev Client using the latest fixpak software directly (it
is a cumulative release on Windows). I am not sure if you will loose any
development center work already saved, or if that is even an issue with you.

To re-install something, you need to un-install it first. So, you
would need to go to add-remove programs, and select to de-install the
dev center. I can't recall if DB2 gives this type of flexibility on
Windows.

I'm not sure that uninstall/reinstall will fix environment settings.

You can install directly from fixpak 8. Whatever you downloaded to
install FP8 can be used to install new functionality, even on a new
system. Obviously, it doesn't come with the license key, so you would
need to install that manually from your CD.

Thanks, Mark, that is exactly what I wanted to know. I've never had to
reinstall a component before so I wasn't sure what to do and didn't see
it in the manual.

As it turns out, the other problems I was having forced me to uninstall
all of DB2 and re-install DB2 V8 (actually DB2 Version 8, Fixpack 7),
then apply Fixpack 8. Unfortunately, after all of that, the Development
Center is just as buggered up as it was before the re-installing.
(Luckily, my BIG problem, an SQL1311N whenever I tried to create a UDF,
went away, which is more important.)

I can't seem to create a new project and the File and Edit menus are
still grayed out, making it impossible to do much of anything in the
Development Center. I tried everything I can think of, including
deleting my .settings file and then the existing projects but nothing
gets me to the point where the launchpad works correctly: when I have
specified my project and clicked ok, it fails to go into "project-
building mode" so that I can add my connection and my stored procedure
or UDF.

Do you - or anyone else - have any idea how to make the Development
Center start fresh? I don't have any projects saved that I need to worry
about.
