The problem I am facing: I am not able to update my WAS 5.1.0 to WAS 5.1.1.5 even after using Cummulative fix 5.
I downloaded was511_cf5_win.zip from ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/software/websphere/appserv/support/fixpacks/was51/fixpack1/cumulative/cf5115/Windows/.
I unpacked this zip in E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\update.
I used setupCmdLine.bat from E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\bin>setupCmdLine.bat.
E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\bin>SET WAS_HOME=E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer

E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\bin>SET JAVA_HOME=E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\java

Along with other things...

Then from E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\update>updateWizard.bat

It asked at one point: Enter the directory where the fixed points are located:
E:\IBMWebSphere\WebSphere\AppServer\update\fixpacks.
Then this JavaScript appears: The fix pack can not be applied to the currently selected product because of missing prerequisites. Please check your support documentation to determine what prerequisites are required.

Now what sort of prerequisites it is asking about? Is it because of space problem? (It seems unlikely to me as I have 1.14 GB free space on my E drive and 1.57 GB in C drive). Or it is due to Windows XP as I have never seen Windows XP mentioned explicitly in IBM document related to Cumulative fix, though they have mentioned Windows 2000 and Windows NT explicitly.

Please help by telling me where I might be wrong. And how can I update from WAS 5.1.0 to WAS 5.1.1.5 on Windows XP OS?

Thanks to Kathey Sierra and Bert Bates for writing such an excellent book. It binds. My friend too got 98%. We owe this happiness to the authors.
