Installation of TIM version 9.6 on Linux gives an "Invalid EULA file specified" message.


This was seen in issue #21962414. Customer downloaded the TIM 9.6 file tim- and attempted to install.  An EULA file is provided during the installation. However, the installer gives the error message, "Invalid CA EULA file specified".

Root cause - While unzipping the tar file tim-, if the command tar -xvf is used, then the EULA file will not be accepted.

Fix - The extracted file needs to be in .gz format to allow the EULA file to be accepted. Use this command tar -zxvf tim- to extract the TIM files. After doing this, the EULA file should be accepted and no invalid EULA messages should appear.


Below is a list of what each tar option means.

  • x - extract files
  • c - create archive
  • t - list files
  • v - verbose (list files as it processes them)
  • j - use bz2 compression
  • z - use gz compression
  • f - read or write files to disk
