We need to finish the installation procedure manually. Log-in (you can log-in as Informix if you want, but it is not required). Once you are logged, click the “Start” button, open the “Control Panel”, select “Performance and Maintenance” (if you do not use the classic view) and select “Administrative tools”. You can double click on “Services” to have the list of available services on your machine.

Scroll to “Informix IDS” and select it.
