So we have been buzzing along on a project and in the middle of deployment have upgraded all of our development laptops to some new IBM T-60s running Windows XP Pro SP2.
So out of nowhere, there is a bunch of functionality that does not seem to work and it is pretty crucial.
Well after an 3 hours of diddling, searching the web and so forth, I identified that there does seem to be an issue with 7.5 and they have supplied a patch "DataStage Client 7.5 Patch for XP SP2" which is called "dsclient_xpsp2.zip" which is not available online to the public. So our IBM account administrator was able to find the workaround/patch and email it to me.
I am tempted to publish the patch here as this took us down and was not in the standard CD, download package. But I do not want to get in trouble from IBM. So as soon as you hit the issue, call your IBM rep.
