I just did the installation from the Web that Eric pointed out - it took very little time - like 10 or 15 minutes - compare that to really long download times that others are reporting and that I've seen before.

I'm almost ready to suggest that we use the web install with IM!

Good to know for updates.

We download the disk1 & disk2 that way it's downloaded for all of our users to use, otherwise every install will essentially be re-downloading the source.

If you installed from disk1 and disk2, you are done.
I was just suggesting a simpler mechanism in future, so that you don't even have to download disk1 and disk2, unzip them, find the right executable to launch etc,

But if you do set the repository to
https://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.rational.developer.ibmi.v91
you will be able to install updates to 9.1 when we ship them in the future.
So it probably is a good idea.

I already installed from the download of Disk1 & Disk2. The repository for
IM points to Disk1. Should I update it to point to:
https://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.rational.developer.ibmi.v91


Thanks

Jerry,
I will let Eric answer the specifics about disk 2.
But there is a simpler way to install. Just follow the instructions at
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21667734
and you won't even need to download the zips for the product.

Thanks for your timely input Eric ? it really is appreciated.



I see others have used Launchpad.exe directly to do their install. I didn?t think of that as to my knowledge the preferred method is to use IM ? so I had no idea that executing Launchpad.exe would trigger the install of IM 1.7.2.



I had installation manager installed, and in the past it knew it needed to upgrade itself ? not sure why it didn?t this morning, and after I upgraded it to 1.7.2, I did check the preferences and the Search for Installation Manager updates was checked.



But now when I start the install process for RDi V9.1 I?m seeing the
following:



?Installation Manager cannot find the files for the following disks: 2 in
IBM(r) Rational(r) Developer for i 9.1.?



As I stated in an earlier post, the package I unzipped yesterday resulted in only one folder named ?disk1?. Is the above message telling me I should have (or need) a ?disk2? too?
