Second Cup of Coffee – Check. Consumed Doughnut – Check. Removed crumbs and sticky remnants of doughnut from laptop keyboard – Check. And Face – Check. Calendar confirms that todays the day IBM release #IBMi RDi 9.6 – Check. Lets got and grab it – Check. 🙂

I’ve been running RDi for a while now and I’m very happy with it:

Download rdi 9. 5. 1. 2

But with a new release running wild and the IBM trumpeteers sounding like RDi 9.6 has lots of under the covers changes, plus the fact that this isnt a straightforward upgrade makes it more interesting to us propeller heads. More interesting than an hour in SEU trying to write code only looking at 20 lines at a time, thats for sure!

It’s hard to think about using SEU for programming nowadays, but I know there are still a lot of people out there using the good old fashioned Stoneage Editing Utility. But come on team, if the modern coding platform RDi is now on version NINE there is a clue that maybe you are missing the boat.

If you haven’t set foot in the RDi waters yet – then follow me on the journey down this rabbit hole and lets get on with downloading, installing and have a quick look at it.

I seriously haven’t tried the new RDi 9.6 version yet so if this blog just wanders off into a series of Anglo Saxon expletives then don’t say you haven’t been warned.

  • While trying many times to install 9.6 from the download, I receive “CRIMA1161E Failed to find required installation files”. The description contains a lot of “CRIMC1020E: plug-in blah.blah not found”. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I tried installing with Installation Manager but it shows 9.6 as not entitled.
