How To Install IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) 1

We lived with Client Access for decades but it was always a slightly problematic Windows Installer.

The nice thing about IBM-i ACS is that it is JAVA based, so it can be easily installed on Windows, MAC & Linux devices. The legacy IBM Client Access is no longer supported. IBM Client Access & ACS can both be installed on the same PC and live quite happily next to each other.

We will look at the Standalone Install and the Full Windows Install.
