I downloaded the file "10201_database_win32.zip" from oracle, and attempted to install it on a Windows XP Professional 2002 with SP2. It crashes immediately, giving me no information at all. It starts with messages: No pre-requisite checks found in oraparam.ini, no system pre-requisite checks will be executed.
Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from C:\DOCUME~1\Windows\LOCALS~1\Temp\OraInstall2006-06-21_08046022PM. Please wait ...
Immediately after that, I get the windows messagebox saying: oui.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
The only other information I can find is the InstallActions log file, which contains: Using paramFile: C:\Documents and Settings\Windows\My Documents\Doug\Internet Updates\Oracle\10201_database_win32\database\install\oraparam.ini
No pre-requisite checks found in oraparam.ini, no system pre-requisite checks will be executed.
The commandline for unzip:
C:\Documents and Settings\Windows\My Documents\Doug\Internet Updates\Oracle\10201_database_win32\database\install\unzip -qqq ../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/126.96.36.199.0/1/DataFiles/"*.jar" -d "C:\DOCUME~1\Windows\LOCALS~1\Temp\OraInstall2006-06-21_08-46-22PM"
If anybody can give me any help, I would appreciate it.
The Installer crashes, then it surely should be something to do with memory issue...or the explorer.
Is your windows xp stable?
plus do you have enough free space in your c drive ?!
It has nothing to do with the OS admin..login...
The installer is exiting and should be an OS resource issue..
i would have checked for space and memory ...then looked at my OS. Any back ground crazy internet programs running....
I would look at OS since oracle successfully installs in windows xp without a hitch!
Pre-requisite for Oracle 10 G:
1) 256 MB Ram, But atleast 512 MB
If you have 256 MB ram but still it fails reason - Your RAM would be shared with Video Device so you will be loosing at least 32 MB of your total Ram.
2) 256 Color Display at least (Hope this won't be a problem at your side)
3) IP Address or Microsoft Loop back adapter should be configured!
I'm having the same problem installing the Client. Most certainly not a memory issue.
Brand new IBM ThinkPad T60, 1.5GB ram, perfectly stable system other than this issue.
Display is 1400 x 1050 @ 32 bpp, Radeon X1300 128MB
Plenty of free space on the HDD (over 20GB free).
Connected to our corporate LAN directly (wired), although the same problem occurs over WLAN.
Any other ideas?
moving the installation files to the C drives helps. Another thing to check is the configuration of the TEMP (and or) TMP system variables. They must also not have spaces in them. I ran into that problem installing 11G on my laptop.
I hope this information is of some use to someone..
