Create a user that you will use as your BPM administrator account and add it to the Administrators group and to the DB2ADMNS and DB2USERS groups. You will also need this ID later when you create your profiles as this ID is used to write to the databases:

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

Part II – Begin the installation

As this is a 64 bit installation, open up the launchpad64.exe to begin the installation:

Click on using custom installer in the Custom Installation section:

Install as an administrative user. Click Install:

Select your language and click Next:
