Installing in Graphical Mode

You can install the Informatica clients in graphical mode on Windows.
  1. Close all other applications.
  2. Go to the root of the directory for the installation files and run install.bat as administrator.
    To run the file as administrator, right-click the install.bat file and select
    Run as administrator
    .
    If you do not run the installer as administrator, the Windows system administrator might encounter issues when accessing files in the Informatica installation directory.
    If you encounter problems when you run the install.bat file from the root directory, run the following file:
    <installer files directory>\client\install.exe

  5. On the
    Installation Directory
    page, enter the absolute path for the installation directory.
    The installation directory must be on the current computer. The maximum length of the path must be less than 260 characters. The directory names in the path must not contain spaces or the following special characters: @|* $ # ! % ( ) { } [ ] , ; '
    Informatica recommends using alphanumeric characters in the installation directory path. If you use a special character such as á or €, unexpected results might occur at run time.
