2 version of admin client on same PC?

P: n/a
aj
Can I install the v8.2 FP4 (aka v8.1 FP11) LUW Admin client
on a Wix XP box that *also* has the v8.1 FP5 Admin client
installed?

Will both admin clients coexist on the same PC at the same
time? How? Can I just install into a different (non-default)
folder?

TIA

No, you can't. You can install just one version on a Windows box.

The answer is "mostly" no.

You can use a product such as VMWare to create a virtual Windows box and run
the other DB2 client in there. Of course, then you need to pay for a
seperate Windows license. So I would recommend, of course, that you run a
free version of Linux in that virtual machine, ... of course, that may
impact your ability to run the application you want to run ;-)
