STEP2:- In the next screen select the option Install Informatica 9.6.1 clients and then click Next.


STEP3:- Ensure you have 5GB of free disk space and click Next on the next screen

STEP5:- Provide the installation directory where you want it to be installed. Keep the default.


STEP6:- Select Install Data Tranformation Studio and a standalone copy of Eclipse in the next screen and click Next
