    Hello,

    first: I think this is the appropriate forum for your question.
    Second: It seems as if Oracle decided to finally drop 10g XE. When you try to call the product home page, which still worked a few days ago, you now get
    The version of Oracle Database you are looking for is no longer available on OTN.
    So, there probably is no way to download this package from Oracle anymore. Perhaps you are lucky to find some file hoster that still has the package in its repository.

    Just for curiosity: Why do you need this specific version?

    That's understandable. But as mentioned before, the official download isn't available anymore. If you can't find somebody else to provide you the package, you might consider the migration to 11.2 XE, as documented in the [url http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/install.112/e18803/toc.htm#CEGJJGEJ]11.2 Installation Guide. (change to the Linux version of that Guide if you don't run on Windows)
    Even if you still have hopes to get 10.2 XE running on your new machine somehow, I'd recommend to create the 10.2 dump and installation files (steps 1-3) just to have a backup plan.

    It seems the download is still available on the japanese OTN page ( http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/jp/database/express-edition/downloads/database10gxe-459378-ja.html ) as posted here: {message:id=10450295}
    I guess you'd better be fast, because it's likely that the download will be removed there as well.

    Hi
    user599923, I recommend download Oracle Database Express Edition 11g Release 2.

    Lik: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/products/express-edition/downloads/index.html

    TIPS

    when you install the database to make sure the account that has administrator privileges install.

    Why

    Sometimes the installer glitches. Sometimes its because the user running the install isn't a local admin.

    If there are no data files under the XE folder, that is a symptom of an installer glitch.

    See the Local Users and Groups applet, Start/Run lusrmgr.msc open the Groups folder, right click/Properties on Administrators. If you're logged into the host with a domain account, be sure your <domain>\loginname is in that local admins group.
