RE: Windows 7 laptops cannot install IBM i service packs



fixed

Check to see if the service pack file that you downloaded from IBM is
blocked.

Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the downloaded file. Right-click on the
file, select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. On the General tab at the
bottom, you might see the following text:

"This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect
this computer."

Next to that is an Unblock button. If the button is clickable, click it.

Then try running the service pack install again. (After you have installed
the MSFT vcredist_x86.exe)

I sent the following to the PCTech list a few days ago with no
response, so I'm trying it here. Not sure which list it should be on
anyway . . .


For a couple of years now I've had trouble (read unable) with Win 7
32-bit laptops when trying to install IBM i Access 7.1 service packs.
I get this
error:

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the
package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application
vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

I decided it's time to figure this out. I found this page:


http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/i/access/windows_sp.html#
action


which in turn sends me here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=26347

I have downloaded vcredist_x86 (they're 32-bit laptops), run it,
rebooted, and it did not help. Same error.

What am I missing?
