OPatch commands are failing with error code 255 and not able to find OUI jars

     I'm trying to apply a patch using opatch but I'm getting this error: "OPatch was not able to find OUI jars to load them runtime. Please provide valid oui location using 'oui_loc' option. OPatch failed with error code 255".


Oracle is x64 on Windows Server 2008R2 x64. The PATH variable have %ORACLE_HOME%\OPatch, %ORACLE_HOME%\OPatch\jlib, %ORACLE_HOME%\bin in it.


The only OPatch command that is working and not throwing the error  is the "opatch version" command.


OPatch Version:


OPatch succeeded.


No luck on finding issue resolution or documentation on MOS.


I cannot find any documentation about the "oui_loc" option.


Any help would be appreciated.
