Use a zip utility to extract the installer file that you require to a directory on your machine. Verify that the zip utility version is compatible with the Windows operating system version. When you unzip the file, verify that the zip utility also extracts empty folders.
You can extract the installer files in the following ways:
Installation DVD. Download the Informatica .zip file from the installation DVD to a directory on your machine and then extract the installer files, or extract the installer files directly from the DVD to a directory on your machine. If you download the .zip file to a directory on your machine, verify that the length of the entire installation directory path, including the .zip file name, is 60 characters or less.
FTP download. Download the Informatica installation .zip file from the Informatica Electronic Software Download (ESD) site to a directory on your machine and then extract the installer files.
