I have DB2 8.1.0 for Windows installed
I want to apply fixpak 5 so I download the very large file
I run it and now, it asks for the fixpak IMAGE for DB2 run-time client.
Well, going back to download site, I found wm81fp5.exe, 33 MBytes
Download again and put it where the fixpak 5 looks for it : says not found
Now I run the wm81fp5.exe which appears to be a self-extract
Result is wm81fp5 without extension.
Fixpak 5 still does not 'see' it.
What do I have to do now ?

Exactly what flavor of DB2 8.1 do you have on your machine?  Is it the Application Development Client, just the Run-Time Client or Personal Edition or some other flavor?  If you're not sure, look in control panel>>add/remove software.  You may not have donwloaded the proper fixpak 5 package...

The fixpak is the very large +/- 500 MBytes named fp5_wr21334_ese.exe and the one I thought it needed is wm81fp5.exe
