To Oracle support network,
Even though I followed the installation guide, I am getting the error after 1% download
complete of Oracle Express Edition 10g on a Windows XP Professional laptop of:
"the connection with the server was reset".
Do you know what could be causing this? I have tried multiple times. I appear to meet
the system requirements of disk space and memory available. I also updated as required
from the installation guide the control panel's 127.0.0.1 addition to local internet/internet
thank you for the help-

there have been a few users who reported download problems. Perhaps you'll find a solution in one of the following threads:
I don't think the download has something to do with the system requirements for the installation. If above hints don't help, perhaps there is a proxy or other network node on you way to the outside world that interfers this download.
10g did download successfully after several tries. I did need to follow the installation guide on the download page and for internet
explorer add an internet address 127.1.0.0 to the list to enable downloads from. Also I rebooted and tried again.
It still seemed to fail, but in trying to download the XE (Express Edition) one final time it started up and downloaded sucessfully.
I think the final reboot may have helped. The problem before was that on my DSL connection it would not go past 1% downloaded,
but this final time it did and downloaded quicker and finished in about 1 hour.
