This paper discusses how to diagnose issues associated with WebSphere Application Server V6 installation. It covers actions and resolutions related to the following installation issues:

- Launchpad or installation wizard will not start
- Installation failure or hang
- Profile creation failure
- Install Verification Test (IVT) failures

The installation routine for other products, such as IBM HTTP Server and Web Server plug-ins, is separate from the application server products. This paper only covers issues that are related to WebSphere Application Server V6 installation on distributed systems. It does not cover WebSphere Application Server for z/OS installation.
