Silent install failure of ToadForDB2_Freeware_5.1.0.656 on Windows 8.1

I can run a regular install on Windows 8.1 just fine, but when I try to run a silent install it fails. I’m running the following command:

ToadForDB2_Freeware_5.1.0.656.exe /S /Lx “C:\temp\install.log”

the errors in the log are:

1: ERROR:DB2 Setup is unable to open the response file “”.
1: ERROR:Unable to set the response file “” in the up and running engine.
CustomAction DB2ConfigClientCA.2BC48F01_561E_4906_8321_946A9F5A90AA returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

Any ideas?


The 5.1 Freeware version of Toad for DB2 is not supported on Windows 8, and the silent install of 5.1 cannot be run with the exe installer on that OS.
