    Uninstalling Informatica Services or Clients on Windows

    If you install the Informatica services and Informatica clients on the same machine, uninstalling Informaticaremoves the ODBC directory. This issue affect installation on Windows.

    When you install the Informatica services, the installer creates an ODBC entry that points to the\ODBC7.0 directory. If you install the Informatica clients on the same machine, theinstaller updates the ODBC entry to point to the \clients\tools\ODBC7.0 directory. Ifyou uninstall the Informatica clients, the uninstaller deletes the \clients\tools\ODBC7.0 directory, to which the ODBC entry still points.

    Similarly, when you install the Informatica clients, the installer creates an ODBC entry that points to the\clients\tools\ODBC7.0 directory. If you install the Informatica services on the samemachine, the installer updates the ODBC entry to point to the \ODBC7.0 directory. If

    6 IN_RLN_95100_HF3_0001

  • you uninstall the Informatica services, the uninstaller deletes the \ODBC7.0directory, to which the ODBC entry still points.

    After you uninstall the Informatica services or clients, restore the ODBC7.0 folder to the original location.

    1. Before you uninstall the Informatica services or clients, copy the ODBC7.0 directory to a temporary directoryon your local drive. For example, if you are uninstalling the Informatica services, copy the\ODBC7.0 directory and its contents to C:\temp.

    2. Perform the uninstallation.

    3. After you uninstall the Informatica services or clients, re-create the ODBC7.0 directory path.

    4. Copy the ODBC7.0 temporary directory to the ODBC7.0 directory. For example, if you uninstalled theInformatica services, copy the ODBC7.0 folder and its contents to .

    Hotfix Installation and Rollback

    When you apply the hotfix, the installer backs up existing directories, installs the new version of the product, andrestores or updates required configuration and run-time files.

    Informatica provides separate installers to apply hotfixes to the Informatica services and clients. To apply theInformatica hotfix, complete the following steps:

    1. Complete the pre-installation tasks.

    2. Apply the hotfix to the Informatica services in graphical, console, or silent mode.

    3. Complete the post-installation tasks for the Informatica services.

    4. Apply the hotfix to the Informatica clients in graphical or silent mode. If you are applying the hotfix toInformatica Developer, verify that the Informatica client hotfix version matches the Informatica serviceshotfix version.

    Note: If the Informatica client hotfix version does not match the Informatica services hotfix version,Informatica Developer will not be able to connect to the domain.

    When you roll back a hotfix, the installer restores Informatica to the previously installed version. The installerrolls back the hotfix for the Informatica services and clients at the same time. To apply the Informatica rollback,complete the following steps:
