Introduction:
When installing the PEC component of SCM on a Linux or Unix platform, sometimes you will see an error message:
./INSTALL.SH: /bin/ksh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory 
How can this be fixed so that PEC can be installed?
 
Background:
The reason for this is that the PEC installation script is written to operate in the "korn" shell. If this shell is not available on the Linux or Unix computer to which you want to install, you will see an error message as described above.

 
Environment:
CA Harvest SCM 12.6 and up
Linux or Unix platforms
Instructions:
To resolve the problem, edit the INSTALL.SH file and change the first line of the file from:

    #!/bin/ksh

to 

    #!/bin/sh

Save and close the file and then try the installation again.
