The installer files are distributed as compressed files. You can get the Informatica installation file and distribution packages from the FTP link contained in your fulfillment email.
Download the Informatica installation tar file and the required distribution package ZIP files from the Informatica Electronic Software Download site. You can download them to a local directory or a shared network drive that is mapped on your machine.
Extract the Informatica installer files to a directory on your machine. The user that runs the installer must have read and write permissions on the installer files directory and execute permissions on the executable file.
Ensure that you extract the installer files to a local directory as you can't run the installer from a mapped file.
Copy the ZIP files of the distribution packages to the following location:
<Informatica installer files>/source
The installer fails if the ZIP files for distribution packages aren't available in the source directory.
