Installation Manager Version 1.8.3, or later, is required to install ZIETrans Toolkit.

When you install ZIETrans V1.0 using the Installation Manager, the installation process checks that prerequisite packages and features are already installed. If not, a message is displayed, and the install does not proceed. The following sections list the prerequisite packages and features that must already be installed.


For HCL ZIETrans (ZIETrans):

  • One of the following SDP packages, or later FixPacks, including the WebSphere® Application Server version 7.0, version 8.0, or version 8.5 development tools features:
    • Application Developer for WebSphere Software V9.7

If none of the required SDP packages are installed, ZIETrans will not install. If this occurs, use the Install function of the Installation Manager to install one of the required packages along with the required features. Then start the ZIETrans install again.

If one of the required SDP packages is installed without the required features, ZIETrans will not install. If this occurs, use the Modify function of Installation Manager to add the required features. Then start the ZIETrans install again.
