Error: failed to add acl's for specified user. Oracle Database 19c installation

User_YGRB4 Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

I'm trying to install Oracle Database 19c in Windows 10 pro. I have copied the installation file to C:/db_home. I ran setup as administrator and followed all the steps including creating a New Windows User. Then at 7% I get this error: 'failed to add acl's for specified user'. I've been searching all over the internet and haven't found a solution. My PC configuration is in English.

How can I solve this?

    Turn OFF your Firewall on your Windows 10 Pro machine for the duration of the install. You will likely need to run deintall.bat first, to deinstall the failed attempt. Then re-run the Oracle installer after you've disabled your Firewall. You can re-enable the firewall AFTER you've successfully installed Oracle.

    Oracle isn't/wasn't/won't (as far as I can tell) be supported on any MS Windows Home edition. True, some people made it work, but that's more matter of luck. You should upgrade operating system.

    Or, maybe a better option, download one of Pre-Built Developer VMs (for Oracle VM VirtualBox).

    In my case, I removed registry entry Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Oracle\KEY_OraClient19Home1 and reinstall completed without the error. Firewall had nothing to do with it.

    I know this is unrelated to the topic of your entry, but sometime ago I found a very similar website to this one (it was even about the same topic!), but it was laggy as hell, it reminded me of my very old personal website.

    Fortunately on my recent website I didn't got any issues as I decided to change my hosting provider to Truxgo and until today I it's working flawlessly.

    I faced the same issue, solved after cleaning all Oracle 19 related entries at the registry under:


    I deleted KEY_OraClient19Home1 then, searched for whatever Oracle 19 entries under all items under Oracle.

    Then started the installation again, and it went successfully.
