Re: problem updating IBM i Access for Windows 7.1 to latest PTF


Correct AND it says that in the documentation BUT having made this mistake myself it certainly is easy to miss that you need the X86 version on 64 bit O/S.

You need both VC redistributables. x86 and x86-64 it wont install otherwise.

Our sys admin just applied PTF SI49800 to our system, and I'm trying to
update Access on my laptop - 64-bit Win 7 Enterprise SP1.

I get this dialog box -

IBM i Access for windows 7.1 Installer Information

An update is required to continue with this install. Refer to the
following link for details and instructions:


I sort of figured this had to do with the VC++ Redistributable, and it
was - thought I'd already put on the latest, but apparently not.

I just wish that link were clickable - it's not - very unhandy!

Just ranting on a Friday!
