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/18.104.22.168.0/1/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.
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..
