The materials that are posted on TechNet are mostly .ISO (image) files, so
you burn a CD/DVD from those. You need a program like ISO Burner to do it
correctly, it is not just a matter of copying the ISO image that you
download to the media. At that point, you have an installable product.

If you go to TechNet, read through the licensing terms. I am pretty sure
that you can't just download and install this on a lot of machines for
production, it is more for testing and development.

AFAIK, the older versions of Office (back to Off2003) are available. I think
MSFT keeps most of their older products available on TechNet to handle
situations like you had with the Java for V5R1. Sometimes, you just need to
work with an older version for a while.

Hi,

(Sorry, for the non-AS400 discussion, but I opened the door with my earlier
comment.) Are you telling me I can get original XP disks and reformat all of
my Windows 7 machines? I was told it could not be done by the folks we order
PCs from. Would this also be the case for MS Office? I would love to go back
to an earlier version of Office as well. This would be awesome.


Thanks,

Just FYI, Microsoft TechNet offers all of their operating systems,
back to
DOS
6.x versions, also Windows 3.1, 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, etc.

A Technet subscription runs from $199 - $349 year ($599 if you wasn't
physical
DVDs). You can access all of the content online.

So it is wonderful that IBM provides support for old releases, but by
way
of
comparison, MSFT offers the same support without requiring human
intervention.

Hi all,



I want to thank everyone that made suggestions on loading the System
Openness Includes and JDK 1.3 for v5.1 without the installation disks.
Ultimately, it was good old IBM that came through. They sent me a new
set of
v5.1 disks. I had to fill out a form and go through a process,
Withdrawn
Order
Process and Template for Archived Product Code --i/pSeries (non
zSeries) and, viola, a new set of disks arrived in the mail. All of
the
folks that I
talked to at IBM were helpful and knowledgeable. They seemed focused
on helping me with my issue and not just getting through the call,
like so
many
other help desk centers I have dealt with. They even double checked
with me that I was okay with receiving these disks without software
support.
They
were concerned about my being able to use them without help, not their
getting a piece of the pie! (Try to get that kind of service from
Microsoft. It
would be the equivalent of asking MS for a set of replacement disks
for Windows 98 or NT.) Best of all, it was FREE!! I am sorry for the
blatant
plug
here, but IBM support ROCKS!!!



Now that I have that fixed, do I need to set up a TCP/IP connection on
the
AS400 with the server hosting the SQL database before trying to
perform Java/SQL commands to access data from it or just provide a
path with the
IP
address when I submit a connect command? I ask because my attempts
thus far have proved fruitless.





Thanks,
