Install Problems

When I try to run the Setup.exe I get an error "The inventory directory is invalid." and setup stops. What am I doing wrong?

    If you look in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\oracle, you will see HOME0, HOME1, ... keys. If there is a key that ends with a letter instead of a number, you would get this error. Please delete this key and try again.

    I have keys 'ALLHOMES' and 'HOME0'.

    That seems to be fine. Another possibility is that your machine has a corrupted inventory. Rename the Oracle directory under C:\Program Files directory and try again. If that does not work, you might want to try changing ALLHOMES to ALL_HOMES.
