Hi, friends, I have downloaded the DB2 Personal Developer's Edition and tried to unziped it. I got the following error message:
WinZip cannot open C:\DB2\db2\common\ because it is not in the standard Microsoft CAB format (as defined in mid-1998). The "signature bytes" required by the Microsoft CAB specifications are missing.
Would you please help me out from this? Many thanks.

I think there is a setup file that installs DB/2 and it is during the installation that the .cab gets decompressed.
