  3. Shiva – The file “repository.config” needed for adding the repository in IM is in Part 1. However, You have to extract Part 1, 2 and 3 – all of them to the same directories for the installation to complete. If you don’t have Part 2 or 3 available there in the same directory, IM will be asking you for path of extracted file of Part 2 and 3 in middle of the installation. Though late, Hope this answers.
