When I try to extract the client software on a windows system I am unsuccessful.
I have tried winzip and 7zip, and the thing just won't behave.
On Windows SBS and on Windows 7 it is trying to store the files back into the archive and the extraction is rife with warnings and errors no matter where I redirect the extraction process.
On Windows XP winzip simply states the file is corrupt while 7zip never returns.
If you have a process that works on the two files:
I would like to know what it is.
What am I missing?
Okay then just rename those files as a.zip and b.zip
put them in folder make sure folder name is too short ex: c:\a
and try to extract.
There is other issue with length in extracts, using that in your case.
"An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem."
Error 0x80004005: Unspecified Error
That is it. You are left to retry, skip or cancel.
Try it for yourself on these files. It won't work no matter what you do. I am beginning to suspect the encryption process used.
Just so that you all know that I "read the fine manual"
I have the same problem with all of the dac-power center files including:
If anyone knows how to unzip these please help. Nothing works on windows.
From the manual:
220.127.116.11 Unzipping Informatica PowerCenter ZIP Files
The Informatica files are provided as zip files on eDelivery. The zip files may be split into multiple downloads - for example, Informatica PowerCenter and PowerConnect Adapters Client 9.0.1 which contains the following 2 downloads:
Informatica PowerCenter and PowerConnect Adapters Client 9.0.1 (Part 1 of 2)
Informatica PowerCenter and PowerConnect Adapters Client 9.0.1 (Part 2 of 2)
To unzip the Informatica files with multiple downloads on Windows, follow the instructions below.
Download all parts (example, Part 1 of 2 and Part 2 of 2) into the same folder location on Windows.
Use WinZip to unzip the file.
You must use WinZip to unzip the file; other compression tools are not supported.
Create a directory with a short path name (example, D:\INFA) in which to extract the contents of the downloaded zip files.
Tip: Do not use the My Documents folder.
Extract the contents of the first zip file into the directory created in the previous step.
WinZip will automatically extract the contents of the second zip, and any additional zip files.
Please, any news or answer from suppor t?
Also, what would be the manual mentioned in this thread... tried the OBIApps installation, Powercenter installation... could not find the referred text...
